Full description
Situated just 2 hours north of Sydney and 1 hour to the west of Newcastle, the Hunter Valley is the perfect setting for the flight of a lifetime. 

All passengers meet at the Mercure Resort's Hunter Valley Gardens in Pokolbin. From here, you will be taken to one of the 20 launch sites, selected on the morning of your tour to give you the best possible flight over the valley, depending on the wind direction.

Once at the launch site, the balloon is inflated and prepared for take-off. Your friends and family are welcome to experience the excitement of a balloon launch and bid you farewell as you float gently over the undulating valley below. Following the exhilarating hour-long flight, return to the meeting location to celebrate your adventure over a fine glass of Hunter Valley bubbles and some chocolates.
