Escape to a world of unexpected surprises and adventure as you drift over Sydney in a hot air balloon. A balloon ride in the oldest and most romantic of flying machines is the ultimate way to experience an air ride. When your balloon ascends, the panoramic view extends from the City skyline to the surrounding countryside of Sydney's Hawkesbury Valley Or Blue Mountains.

Nestled against the foothills of the Blue Mountains less than 50km from Sydney CBD it's hard to believe that this unspoilt haven for adventure & nature lovers can be located so close to Australia's largest city.
A few hours spent exploring this beautiful region from the sky in our hot air balloon will have you returning home refreshed and relaxed.
We are with comfortable, first class facilities for checking our passengers in on the morning of the flight. Being within close proximity of our launch and landing sites you will be in the air faster and back at home sooner when you fly with us.
Our aim is to be in the skies around sunrise. We shall advise you of the meet time last working day prior to your flight.
After completing some paperwork and listening to a short briefing from your pilot you will be transported to the launch site where you are welcome to help prepare the balloon for flight, or stand back and take pictures.
Then it's up and away on the gentle breezes over the beautiful Hawkesbury Valley in our hot air balloon.
After your balloon flight
What goes up must come down. Your pilot will choose a landing site, which is always downwind of the take off site, and inform the ground crew who will meet us as the balloon gently (or not) comes back to earth.
The fun doesn't stop there. About 20 minutes is spent packing the balloon away before we celebrate this memorable occasion by partaking in a delicious buffet breakfast at the Sebel's Gazebo restaurant.
This time is a great opportunity to view and purchase a photo taken whilst airborne by our in flight camera.
It's a short drive back to the Sebel Restort & Spa where we say our goodbyes and where you can enjoy a delicious buffet breakfast at the Gazebo restaurant; we highly recommend it.

The price of your Hawkesbury Valley balloon flight depends on the day you wish to fly. Weekend flights are most popular and fill up quickly, so book early!
The weather plays a major part in deciding if your flight takes place. Wind, rain or fog can play a part in spoiling our fun. But you have to remember that the whole idea is to have fun and do it safely.
So if the Pilot decides conditions aren't suitable don't get upset, he just wants to give you the best experience possible.
