The Yarra Valley is a leisurely 40 minute drive from Melbourne CBD. Find the best transport options.
With both Federal & State government Covid19 restrictions now lifting, we warmly welcome tourists and visitors back to the Yarra Valley.
When GWB recommence flying operations, we will have a COVID19 Safe Policy & Procedures in place to inform & protect our passengers, crew & pilots.
Unfortunately, reopening has now been delayed due to the unimaginable amount of rainfall the Yarra Valley has received this year to date.
Out of respect to our many, generous landowners, we will not be flying until the flood waters receed and the paddocks dry allowing our vehicles access without causing damage.
We thank you for your understanding, keep an eye out for our reopening email including our start date.
We look forward to flying with you soon.
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 17 year association with the renowned 5 Star Chateau Yering Historic House 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.
