Established 1989

Pioneers of Hot Air Ballooning in the Yarra Valley



Go Wild Ballooning was established in 1989 by the Fraser brothers who pioneered the first hot air balloon flight in the Yarra Valley from the family vineyard ‘Tarraford’ located near Yarra Glen. A short 40 minute drive from Melbourne CBD, Yarra Valley hot air balloon rides offer spectacular views of the Yarra River below, mountain ranges, vineyards, the Melbourne CBD skyline and distant views of Port Phillip Bay. Our sunrise hot air balloon flights can offer these amazing views and more in a tranquil atmosphere, this experience is like no other. Melbourne’s Yarra Valley is surrounded by mountain ranges that provide us with cool, stable conditions at dawn, perfect for hot air ballooning. This famous wine region has cemented itself on the world stage as a major tourism destination show casing award winning wines, heritage accommodation, cafe’s, restaurants, breweries and distillaries. Complimented with the superb local produce and delicacies, the Yarra Valley is also a foodies favourite destination. Our 20 year association with the renowned Chateau Yering Hotel, our meeting point and preferred accommodation & breakfast venue is clear testament to the dedicated service we offer our customers. You deserve the very best.

Skip forward 30 years and the family tradition of flying hot air balloons continues with two young Fraser’s joining the team. Our newest members are the future of our industry. Their enthusiasm, skill & commitment combined with the immense knowledge from our Chief Pilot makes ‘ballooning talk’ educational and highly infectious. The future of hot air ballooning in our beautiful Yarra Valley is very exciting. Let us share this amazing experience with you. Hot Air Balloon Rides Available 7 days per week.

Check out the Gallery and the latest images of Harry & Mia Fraser flying over the summit of Mt Kosciuszko, July 23rd 2018, the highest peak in Australia.

Thank you very much for the wonderful experience with Go Wild Ballooning.
Audrey and I really enjoyed ourselves up there in perfect weather last Saturday. The certificate is very lovely too.

Keep up the good work!
