The Avon Valley, Western Australia, is the ultimate place to experience the enchantment of a hot air ballooning. This rural landscape, with its rolling hills, lush green fields, and meandering streams provides a picturesque setting for the oldest and purest form of flight.

Hot air ballooning in Western Australia is seasonal. Flights operate during the cooler months from early April to late November. (The hot and windy summer weather in WA is unsuitable for ballooning). Your day will start early, 20 minutes prior to dawn. In the cooler months it can be as late as 6.30 am, and in the warmer months it can be as early as 4.15 am.

After arriving at the Northam Airfield, hot tea and coffee will await you, toilet facilities are available and your pilot will brief you about the morning's proceedings. You will then be taken to the chosen launch site where passengers are able to assist with the inflation of the balloons. All on board, the balloon lifts off for your flight of approximately 45 mins to 1 hour.

Upon landing and packing up the hot air balloon, our retrieve crew will return you to Northam for Champagne and a sumptuous cooked breakfast. There is a buffet of fruits, cereal, pastries and cheeseboard, and a full cooked breakfast is served to your table. Champagne is served to toast your flight. Juices, coffee and tea are also available. Please advise if there are any vegetarians or special dietary requirements.

Rated 5 out of 5 by incredible experience! everything went smoothly we stayed in accommodation the night before staff were great the balloon ride was amazing relaxing breathtaking would definitely do it again! 11 May 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Beautiful day Beautiful clear day without a breeze. Took off from the airport itself. Given interesting details from the crew. All happy to assist the crew to get the balloon in the air and assist with packing it up in the field before returning to town for breakfast. Enjoyed the hot air on my shoulder each time the balloon was given a blast as I was given a position directly below the hot air blower. Also very impressed that the operator was able to bring the balloon basket directly into the trailer, rather than on to the ground. Most enjoyable day. Not scary at all. 4 May 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great experience Really enjoyed the experience. The weather conditions were perfect and the pilot was able to give us a great ride. The planning and organisation of the event were faultless and we really enjoyed the breakfast afterwards. A memorable event. 2 May 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by A must do experience We thoroughly enjoyed the whole day from helping to set up, the wonderful flight, being involved with putting away balloon and the excellent breakfast afterwards. Damien the Pilot and his staff were great 29 April 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic I had a great time the ground crew and pilot were very professional and very experienced. Well done loved it. I will certainly recommend the adventure to my friends and family. 27 April 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Totally an enjoyable experience. It was an engaging experience from start to finish. Viewing the unfolding of the balloon followed by the inflation process began the feeling of an adventure about to unfold. The lift off was gentle as was the landing. The highlight was the decent clearing the trees to just hover above a creek then to ascend above the trees on opposite bank. Skillful maneuvering by the pilot during the flight and on landing ensured that the experience was safe and memorable. The experienced ground crew and willing passengers soon had the balloon stored away so that all could get on and have the anticipated champagne breakfast. 25 April 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Hot Air Ballooning I would recommend hot air ballooning to anybody looking for a truly unique experience. 24 April 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice & gentle, lovely & serene I prefer a bit more of a stimulating adventure, but lovely for serenity. Do wear the hat that they advise as the "burner" makes your head very hot. The staff seemed like they would have rather been elsewhere - don't get me wrong, they did & said all the right things, but their hearts didn't really seem to be in it. I did not enjoy the breakfast (or the venue for it) very much. 12 April 2013
