Where do we fly hot air balloons?
Wine Country Ballooning fly exclusively over the lower Hunter Valley. Generally balloon rides are conducted over the wine growing regions of Lovedale, Pokolbin and Mount View. The nearest town to where we fly is Cessnock. Cessnock for many years has been a mining town but in recent times the focus has shifted to wine production and tourism. The Hunter Valley is just 2 hours drive north of Sydney, and one hour to the west of Newcastle. Beautifully located between the Brokenback ranges and the Watagan State forest, the Hunter Valley provides the perfect location for your romantic hot air balloon ride.
Where do we meet for ballooning?
We meet for our early morning balloon flights at Mercure Resort on Broke Road. This location is centrally located for any of the hotels in Pokolbin or Lovedale and only a five minute drive from Cessnock. Plenty of parking is available and the area is well lit for our early morning starts. If you are staying in a local hotel and do not have transport then a pick up service is available.
