If you want things to do in Melbourne, Yarra Valley, Daylesford and Ballarat, then hot air ballooning must be on your list.

Picture This Ballooning has been flying since 1996, and have continuously won Tripadvisor Excellence Awards. Your flight starts before sunrise, when the air is still and the atmosphere is exciting.

Imagine floating over a city of four million people, silently moving with the wind while watching the city awaken, as the sun rises you are the first to feel its rays, and then watch them slowly stretch over the land below.

Or drifting peacefully over the beautiful wineries of the Yarra Valley, enjoying one of the best things to do in this stunning countryside. Do not forget Daylesford & Ballarat too - fly over the Wombat State Forest, or around the Hepburn Springs Region, and finish your day off with a massage as you wish.

Experience the world's oldest form of aviation, flying in a hot air balloon. This legendary part of history, almost unchanged in over 200 hundred years, will have you heading skywards under a giant balloon, the same experience as the first men who ever flew.
