Do ballooning in Northam WA for a truly Aussie experience. Experience the enchantment of the Avon Valley with a gorgeous flight at dawn. The rural landscape, rolling hills, lush green fields, and meandering streams provide a picturesque setting for the oldest and and most natural way to fly!

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 at 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 balloon our retrieve crew will return you to Northam for Champagne and 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 Lovely experience - highly recommended! Although it's a long day it's a very enjoyable one - definitely a memorable experience. I have a fear of heights and was not scared at all - felt completely safe. I'd love to go again! 7 May 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by A truly memorable experience Drifting across the landscape with only the sound of the lambs bleating and the birds singing was truly unforgetable. 5 May 2013

Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic Experience My son and I received this ballooning gift for our birthdays from my wife and I have to say from start to finish we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Everything from the time we booked was so professionally handled by all those who work there. It really was a hands on experience by all that flew that morning and the flight itself was serene and peaceful. Once we landed (which was perfect by the way) we were taken to Northam for a lovely champagne breakfast which was delicious and very welcome. The only thing i would say is that if you are standing at the end of the basket as we were, wear a hat as the heat was pretty extreme from the flame. Would definitely do it again with my wife who regretted not doing it this time. 16 April 2013
