Full description
Enjoy a once in a lifetime adventure and fly over the beautiful Hunter Valley in a hot-air balloon. During the approximately 1-hour flight you will float gently above the valley to appreciate the stunning landscape. Once on land again you will be served local chocolate and champagne, and can indulge in full buffet breakfast.

Meet at the Mercure Resort's Hunter Valley Gardens in Pokolbin. From here, you will be taken to one of the 20 balloon 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 takeoff. Your friends and family are welcome to experience the excitement of a balloon launch and bid you farewell as you fly over the undulating valley below.

Following the exhilarating hour-long flight, return to the meeting point location to celebrate your adventure over a fine glass of Hunter Valley bubbles and some chocolates. Then you can enjoy a full hot and cold buffet breakfast, including bacon, eggs, hash browns, sausages, mushrooms, toast, fruit, cereals, pastries, pancakes, juice, tea and coffee, and more.
