Why should you choose the Hunter Valley?
What's so special about Hunter Valley wine tours in particular? Interestingly, a mountain range is actually the main geographical landmark in the region. Still, the Hunter Valley remains one of the oldest and best wine regions throughout Australia, having existed since the early 1800s. Hunter Valley produces various types of wines, which originate from a cornucopia of different grape varieties. They include:
A balloon trip allows you to view the two regions within Hunter Valley: the Upper Hunter, and the Lower Hunter.
One of the key benefits in terms of the Hunter Valley is that it's a mere two hours drive from the city of Sydney — the state capital of New South Wales. Is Sydney worth visiting? Yes, but since it's the most populated city in Australia, the Hunter Valley provides the perfect day trip, if you need to escape the hustle and bustle of the state capital for a day or two.
Why should you choose a balloon tour?
Hunter Balloon Rides give you a spectacular birds-eye view of the region. Should you consider a land-based tour of Hunter Valley as well? Perhaps you should. However, your tour of the area wouldn't be complete without seeing the region from the sky. Some tours exclusively include Upper Hunter Valley or Lower Hunter Valley, while others include both areas. Regardless of which type of tour you choose, you'll certainly enjoy a unique perspective of the wine region. That perspective is absolutely, positively impossible to enjoy from the ground.
How much will a balloon tour cost?
As you might expect, a balloon tour will be pricier than a land-based tour will be. That said, keep in mind that you can't put a dollar value on the priceless experience of touring the wine region from the air. It's definitely worth every penny! Who knows if you'll ever be in this New South Wales region again? For that reason alone, you should certainly consider taking the opportunity of viewing the Hunter Valley from the sky. You wouldn't want to regret later that you didn't enjoy one of Hunter Balloon Rides' Hunter Valley wine tours, right?
