We never have more than 10 passengers per morning

Flights are approximately 45-60 minutes and the whole experience will take around 3-4 hours. Your pilot has been flying over the vines of the Hunter Valley for over 10 years and as he is also the owner of the company, every effort will be made to ensure your flight is one to remember.


Wine Country Ballooning offers balloon flights exclusively over the Hunter Valley. With over 10 years experience flying over the vineyards you are assured a morning to remember.

Our promise is never more than 10 people per morning

When it comes to a once in a lifetime experience like ballooning you do not want to get lost in the crowd! Wine Country Ballooning is the Valley's only boutique balloon company. Passenger meet at the Mercure Resort, Hunter Valley Gardens. Following a short briefing we transfer you to our selected launch site. Once at the launch site you can witness the magic of a Hot Air Balloon being inflated. Once ready, climb aboard to start your flight. One moment we could be drifting just above the tree tops, the next 3000 feet in the air with views of the mountains. Every flight is unique and magical in its own way.

Following the flight of approximately one hour we are returned to the Mercure Resort to relax in the intimate surrounds of the library and enjoy a glass of champagne and time to reflect on your morning with your pilot and fellow balloonists.
