Yarra Valley – Ballooning and Barrel Tasting

View the Yarra Valley from Up Above!

What a way to start your day – as the sun starts to rise, float gently over Victoria’s stunning Yarra Valley aboard a hot air balloon. Let the breeze usher you along the corridors of grape vines and over the Yarra River as you take in the breathtaking views of the surrounding Dandenong Ranges. Toast your balloon flight with a sumptuous sparkling wine breakfast at a nearby vineyard with panoramic views of the Valley.

After breakfast, visit Healesville Wildlife Sanctuary, regarded as one of Australia’s leading wildlife reserves, Healesville Sanctuary has over 200 species of Australian birds and animals in pristine ‘Aussie’ bush land.

A Private Yarra Yarra Valley Balloon flight and Winery Tour

After the hot air balloon flight above the Yarra Valley, you will visit Dominique Portet vineyard, where you will be treated to an exclusive behind-the-scenes barrel room tasting, carefully paired with Yarra Valley produce. The Portet family has been making wine for 10 generations, since the early 17th century. Now affable Frenchman Dominique Portet, a household name in Victorian wine circles, and son Ben, are continuing the tradition at this charming winery in the heart of the Yarra Valley.

Continue your Yarra Valley wine tour exploring the region meeting local characters and sampling wine from boutique wineries such as Yarra Yering, Coldstream Hills and Yering Farm. Avoiding the crowds of the larger wineries – the tour will be tailored to suit your tastes. Finish with lunch at one of the region’s picturesque vineyard restaurants.

The Yarra Valley is one of Australia’s few locations for hot air ballooning, and this is a tour that will leave you with unforgettable memories of a very beautiful place.
