Then away you go, floating gently over the city of Melbourne. In the early morning light you will drift by the array of parks and gardens that make Melbourne the world's most liveable city. As the city comes to life you will look down on some of the cities iconic sporting venues like the MCG, Melbourne Park and Albert Park racetrack.During the flight the ground crew will follow the balloon and meet you at the landing site.
