A breathtaking Hot Air Balloon Flight over the Hawkesbury Valley. Travel with the Tourism Award winners with over 20 years of experience!
The No. 1 Hot Air Balloon Experience in Australia. Check out the NEW video!
Have you ever seen Hot Air Balloons floating silently above you? Join us on a Hot Air Ballooning adventure in the Hawkesbury and experience one of the most serene, enjoyable activities most of us will enjoy.
Rising before dawn, you can join the crew in unpacking and preparing the balloon for flight - which is a spectacle in itself! After an exhilarating launch, you'll drift with the wind silently over the river, hills and villages of the Hawkesbury region of Sydney. Of course, you never know where you're going to end up as you can't steer balloons; to maneuver the balloon your pilot ascends or descends in altitude, catching different wind currents.
After landing you can help the crew pack the balloon away, which is a bit like packing up a 100ft tall sleeping bag! To top off the morning you'll celebrate with a hearty breakfast. This adventure is for 1 person. There will be other people in the balloon basket with you.
Hot Air Balloon flights take place at sunrise. The exact time of your Hot Air Balloon flight experience will vary based upon the time of year and will be sent to you upon booking.
Really enjoyed the hot air balloon ride. Very safe and quiet. Our pilot was fantastic.
Breakfast was great. Staff were professional and lovely. I wished we could go a bit higher than 300 feet. All good and I really enjoyed it
Thanks to everyone involved who made this adventure a great one.

Balloon experience fantastic all round would happily recommend to friends
Our Chief Pilot John was a complete professional. Not only was he highly competent but also, he shared his pleasant sense of humour with the group. For me, this converted a really good experience into a great one. I also had the opportunity to chat with John's two off-siders. Both were professional friendly and helpful. All in all, this was a truly memorable experience and I'd like to take another balloon flight with John and his team some time soon. Chris [Lindfield] .
I will always seek my adventures through Adrenalin.
I recommend to everyone to have a go at a balloon flight. I have recently mastered my fear of heights and so this was extra special for me, never felt afraid at any stage. John and his crew were awesome. Once we were up there it is so quiet and peaceful, loved all aspects of it.
Please note that there will be others in the basket with you.
The adventure begins by inflating the balloon using a giant portable fan. Once the balloon starts to take shape the burner is lit, heating the air inside. The hot air inside is lighter than the cool air outside and this is what creates the lift and why it is called a Hot Air Balloon. Passengers are welcome to assist the pilot and crew with inflating the hot air balloon at the launch site, which only takes about 20 minutes.
