Hear the sounds of the awakening world below as you witness the sunrise over the mountains, showering the landscape with golden light. Time seems to stand still as you are transported on an aerial nature walk…this is the unique sensation of ballooning.
It does not get any colder in the balloon because we do not reach high altitudes and there is no wind chill factor as the balloon moves with the wind. However please be aware that it can be cold in the Avon Valley. Bring sunglasses, cap or beanie and scarf.
Ballooning in Western Australia is seasonal. Flights take place during the cooler months from early April to late November as the hot and windy summer weather in Western Australia is unsuitable for ballooning. The Avon Valley lies one-hour east of the Perth CBD. The meeting location for the flight is Northam Airfield. Meeting time is approximately half an hour before sunrise. Spectators: We do not encourage groups of spectators as we do not always launch at the airfield and vehicles CANNOT follow onto the private property that the balloon is launched from. There are limited places for a spouse or partner to accompany as a non-flying participant at an additional cost (Pre-booking is essential - limited spaces available).
Excellent day, excellent atmosphere and down to earth staff.
The flight was a birthday surprise for my wife. We both absolutely loved it and are trying to talk my parents into coming with us. The day was perfect and one we will never forget. Onto the next thrill !!!! Hey everybody, just do it!
