See how sometimes the best light comes on cloudy days when the sun manages to penetrate and cast lovely light in different areas. With three airports, the bay to the South and a huge metropolitan area, Melbourne is a very technical location to fly over.
Watch as the pilot uses the winds at different heights to guide the flight to a safe landing spot. Balloons float in the wind so you will end up in a different location from where the flight started. Meet the ground crew at the landing spot.
Return to your accommodation in central Melbourne after the ballooning gear is put away.
