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. Review Check out a review of this experience by blogger Glowless
