Western Australia's Avon Valley is the ultimate place to experience the enchantment of a hot air balloon flight at sunrise. 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.
After arriving at Northam Airfield, hot tea and coffee will await you and your pilot will brief you about the morning's proceedings. You will then be transported to the chosen launch site where passengers are able to assist with the inflation of the balloons. All on board, the balloon will lift off for your magical flight that begins 20 minutes before first light. Watch the world awaken below you as you float peacefully overhead, discovering undulating hills, farms, streams and forests.
Upon landing and packing up the balloon, the retrieve crew will return you to Northam for a sumptuous breakfast and champagne overlooking the river. Satisfy your appetite with a buffet of fruits, cereal, pastries and cheese, plus a full cooked breakfast served to your table. Juices, coffee and tea are also available.
The 2019 season is scheduled to commence on Saturday 30th March 2019, weather permitting.
