Balloon launch sites in the Hunter Valley
Posted Wednesday, May 14th, 2014
Where do you launch your balloons from?
We are lucky here in the Hunter to be graced with lots of friendly land owners. We have about 20 take off sites all over the valley. People often see us as an integral part of the tourist network in the valley. Ballooning, wine, horse riding all brings people to the valley so support is widespread. There are a few who don’t like the hot air balloons taking off from their locations, often with good reason, livestock, horses or fear of cross contamination of sensitive vines. We respect the wishes of these people and work with the ones that welcome us.
Hope Estate on Broke Rd is a great example of a fantastic place to launch. Friendly owner, beautiful location and always an exciting place to fly over with a wealth of local wildlife and a stunning cellar door.
