Weather / Meteorology



  • Weather & Meteorology
    • Our flying locations are chosen as they provide calm, cool air, suitable for flying hot air balloons
    • The majority of flights do proceed on the scheduled day
    • Commercial Pilots, trained in meteorology, re-evaluate the weather several times each morning
    • Avoid following Melbourne weather forecasts, in particular long-range forecasts that provide an overall view of the whole day & are not necessarily relevant to early morning hot air ballooning
    • Pilots have registered access to detailed weather reports from the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) specific to ballooning in our flying locations
    • We see the sunrise on most flights
    • Hot air ballooning is a weather dependant activity
    • No aviation flight or activity is ever 100% guaranteed as weather is not an exact science
    • If your flight is cancelled by the pilot, we email a link so you can rebook & fly on another day

Hot Air Balloon Flight Itinerary

– allow up to 5 hours
  • Balloon meeting time is confirmed the evening before your flight when you ‘check-in’ with our duty pilot
  • Flight morning commences at our Yarra Valley meeting point Chateau Yering Hotel approximately one (1) hour before sunrise
  • You will receive a ‘wake-up’ call 30 minutes before the meeting time
  • Go Wild Ballooning transfer passengers from Chateau Yering to the launch site
  • Balloon launch & landing site & flight path vary daily depending on the weather
  • No two flights are ever the same
  • The balloon is inflated and we encourage passenger participation.  This is also a great time to take photographs
  • Your hot air balloon flight is approximately one hour with magnificent views of the vineyards, mountain ranges, the meandering Yarra River below with distant views of the Melbourne CBD skyline and Port Phillip Bay
  • Upon landing passengers are encouraged to participate in the deflation process and packing up the balloon.  This is a great time for taking photographs and a fun way to complete your ballooning experience
