Hunter Valley balloon flights – Keep it special


No other form of flight can compare to the peace and beauty of a Hunter Valley balloon flight. Ballooning is the oldest form of aviation and has thrilled people since the 1700s. Now it’s your turn! Our flights are between 45-65 minutes in duration and operate daily over the Lower Hunter Valley.

You are assured the best possible service with no more than 10 passengers on any morning. We only fly one balloon a day ensuring you are the centre of attention.

What makes us different

Keep it special because not all balloon flights are created equal. With Wine Country Ballooning you will fly with the Owner and Chief Pilot of the company. Not a new pilot with a few hundred hours but an experienced professional with a few thousand hours and an unblemished safety record. We will make your experience special from the moment we meet. Small balloons and intimate groups. In 2015 we will be the only Hunter Valley company to guarantee you an intimate experience as we never have more than ten people on any one morning.  Most companies fly up to 20 people per balloon and some have up to 70 people to check in on a single morning. We go out of our way to avoid this situation. Keeping it special for our guests.

Catching all the in-flight action

Unique to Wine Country Ballooning is our in-flight camera system. Not only do we get some fantastic photos taken in-flight from outside the basket, we also get amazing high definition video of every flight.
