Hot air ballooning is seriously good fun. It's so peaceful, majestic, refreshing and relaxing. It's definitely not cheap, but worth doing at least once. We booked our trip via Red Balloon, with the package including the balloon ride and a champagne breakfast. Every aspect of the adventure was excellent, from setting up the balloon, to flying, to landing, to packing the balloon up, to hearing the history of ballooning, and finally the totally indulgent breakfast served with a never ending glass of champagne. I highly recommend this experience. The balloon leaves from Rochford Winery, so after you're finished, you can sample some more wines there and then visit the rest of the Yarra Valley. I shall now let the photos tell the story. It was an utterly amazing day and although it was expensive, I shall treasure those sensations and memories for a long long time. Feel free to ask any questions in the comments sections and I'll respond to them.
