It’s really fun!
Even if you’re not a heights person, I would recommend you try this awesome activity!
The ascent is very gentle and same with the descent. I love heights, so for me it’s a great activity. This one was a surprise birthday gift for Hubby’s 30th birthday! We spent the long easter weekend in the hunter and Sunday morning bright and early ascended into the sky. 6.15am to be exact!
This is the balloon – all spread out and prepped for the journey:
Luckily it didn’t rain because Balloons don’t fly when its bad weather, so I was keeping my fingers crossed the entire Saturday hoping the weather gods would be kind to us!
The whole experience was a surprise I planned for my hubby’s 30th and we had a fantastic weekend at the Hunter. One of my fave places to visit on a long weekend. Aah the serenity!
Balloon Aloft made the whole morning amazing! There were about 14 people in total in the basket with us but you don’t feel like you can’t enjoy yourself. Everyone stays in their basket compartments and the flight is very smooth.
Here are the other 2x balloons lifting up into the air:
While flying over the Hunter, we saw lots of green pastures, farms, vineyards, lazy cows and curious kangaroos who looked up at us as we passed them up above. So cute! Generally its just a beautiful landscape to be looking over – especially early in the morning when everything is so still.
Afterwards we were driven back to the starting point – Peterson Champagne House, for some bubbly and brekkie. (which was all very good!)
Petersons Champagne House is beautiful:
It was a great experience and something different to do, not far from Sydney!
