What to Expect
Travel reference:

Start your day off with a spectacular sunrise hot air balloon ride in the Sydney's personal favorite hot air balloon location - Hawkesbury!

After an early start with hotel pick-up from select hotels, you'll be transported to the start location. Listen carefully as your expert pilot demonstrates how to get these giant balloons up in the air. Then after you know it, you'll be floating up to watch the sun rise into the clear blue Hawkesbury sky. Enjoy sweeping views of Hawkesbury on this balloon ride which lasts for 45 to 60 minutes. Your professional pilot will provide you with detailed explanations of landmarks and places of interest along the way.


Upon landing you'll be encouraged to join in the folding and packing up the hot-air balloon. Afterwards, enjoy an optional buffet breakfast at the Sebel Resort and Spa.

  • Q:How long should I allow for the whole flying experience? Will it be cold during my flight?
    A:Hi there, thanks for your question. Flights are scheduled to last 45 minutes. For the whole flying experience you should allow 3 hours. You will find it no colder in the balloon than when you are on the ground. The burners, located above your head radiate some warmth so it's quite pleasant in winter and damn hot in Summer.
