Wine Lovers Take Note, A Yarra Valley-Style Balloon Flight Might Just Be To Your Taste.
This famous Victorian winery region is a leisurely 50-minute drive from Melbourne’s CBD and has more than 80 vineyards dispersed throughout, which means you’ll have plenty to see from the sky-high vantage point of a hot air balloon. Let the breeze usher you along the corridors of grapevines and over the Yarra River as you lose yourself in the breathtaking views of mountains, vineyards and maybe even spot some kangaroos!
Some prefer the scenic route to the Yarra Valley, located just 50 minutes drive from the CBD. Traverse roads through gnarly vineyards and misty farms until a landscape worthy of silence appears. But the journey across Victoria’s most-loved wine region is unrivalled by hot air balloon
Spend an hour up over the Yarra Valley – Victoria’s most spectacular wine regions. Just a 50min drive from the bustle of Melbourne CBD, we rise with the sun and finish with a sparkling buffet breakfast at Balgownie Estate.
Approximately 3-3.5hrs, including: driving to the launch site, setting up/packing down the balloon, the approx. 1hr flight and driving back to Winery for Breakfast.
Food & Wine tour Guide will meet you up after Breakfast at 10:45am at Balgownie Estate for following full day tour.
While the Yarra Valley is a world-renowned wine growing region, wine is only half the story of this gourmet wonderland and our tour provides a fine blend of the very best of the region’s wines and other gourmet produce. Sample expertly made cheeses, chocolates, wines, and more on this Yarra Valley day tour in foodie heaven!
We start the day with an exclusive farm gate visit at Yarra Farm Fresh, for a palate-cleansing fruit tasting experience. At this boutique, third-generation orchard, we’ll sample a range of seasonal fruits and other local produce. We will also learn a little about the wide range of farm-fresh fruits grown on the property.
Next, we travel to one of the valley’s true icons, Balgownie Estate where we’ll enjoy a tasting from their extensive range of quality wines. We’ll learn how to swirl, sniff, and slurp like true connoisseurs while tasting some of the very finest cool climate wines.
The amazing produce at the Yarra Valley Dairy will truly melt in your mouth. The cheeses here are truly stunning and will have your tastebuds working overtime!
Our lunch is at the fabulous Rochford Wines where our guests can choose from four different main meals, with a glass of wine and tea or coffee. Take some time to explore the gift shop, or perhaps climb the spiral staircase to enjoy the panoramic views from Rochford’s famous lookout tower.
After lunch, we make our way to one of Australia’s great wineries and a member of the Australian Tourism Hall of Fame, Yering Station. Home of Victoria’s oldest vineyards, first planted in 1838, the wines here are of exceptional quality and a tasting is not to be missed.
Before returning to Melbourne, we’ll visit the Yarra Valley Chocolaterie where you’re welcomed with an exclusive chocolate tasting, displays of thousands of premium chocolates, and European chocolatiers at work handcrafting their chocolate creations.
You will commence the journey home knowing that you have enjoyed the very best that the Yarra Valley has to offer.
Drop off to Melbourne CBD hotels around 17:30pm to finish the full day tour.
