Festival balloonsFestival flights over the historic Balloon Capital of Australia last for 50 minutes to one hour flying time depending on available landing sites. They recommend you allow at least three to four hours with them. Flying during the annual festival when the sky is filled with a mass of colourful balloons is the ultimate ballooning experience.

They also cater for non flying accompanying friends who are welcome to follow the balloons in their own vehicle. If they wish to join you for breakfast please order this, as an extra at the time of your booking. Ballooning is a magic experience.

Family Hot Air Balloon and Overnight Stay - Midweek

LetArrive at your family suite, (which will perfectly accommodate two adults and two kids) and enjoy your dinner for four at a country pub. In the morning you will be greeted at dawn and transferred to the launch site, which changes every day according to wind direction. Get excited as the balloon slowly inflates. It's great for the kids to see the science of the hot air balloon, and because of the slow transition to height, there's never been any fear-tears! As you rise slowly off the ground your experienced guide will let you get a fantastic look at the country-side, at times hovering close enough to trees to see bird-nests and foxes, then when you're ready, floating through light cloud. What a great experience for adults, let alone kids! Your flight of 50 minutes to an hour is an amazing way to see our beautiful country. After your landing, you will be driven to Delice Coffee to enjoy a gourmet breakfast! True relaxation for the adults with champagne and/or espresso coffee, and hot chocolate for the kids - happy families!
