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).
I had a wonderful experience the staff where excellent, Pilot Damien was great very informative. Loved it would go again asap
The Hot Air Ballooning is a “Must Do” in the Avon Valley. Amazing experience. I felt safe and I totally forgot about my fear of heights. Instead, I was stoked with what I saw. I thought it was surreal. The beauty of nature, witnessed how the sun rose. Greens. The fog over the valley that created a magical scenery. I’ve recommended this to my friends. Don’t want them to miss this unforgettable experience. Friendliness and attentiveness of the staff, crew and the enthusiasm of the pilot were a BIG PLUS to this activity. More power to Windward Ballooning Adventures and to this super convenient online booking from Adrenaline. It’s just so much adventures to choose from this site.
Thank you for a fantastic adventure. Your professional staff helped me to relax and feel completely safe so I could enjoy the experience of a lifetime.
