The Local Hunter Valley Hot Air Balloon Company

We are the locally owned and locally operated Hunter Valley hot air balloon company. Wine Country Ballooning is the product of 15 years flying hot air balloons exclusively here in the Hunter Valley.  Pilot Daren and Office goddess Yvette live right in the heart of the community where we fly. “Raising two young children and running a balloon company is a challenge at the best of times, but we love what we do and there is no greater pleasure than sharing our passion with others.”

When you fly with Wine Country Ballooning you will be flying with the Owner and Chief Pilot, Daren. With over 2000 flights over this valley under his belt you could not be in safer hands. We do not employ low hour, student or overseas pilots.

We believe that when you book your balloon flight you are looking to book with someone who will value your safety and quality of experience as much as you do. With about 20,000 happy and safe passengers flown so far by your pilot, we are sure you will agree.
