If you are looking for somewhere special and romantic to propose or for a treat for a special occasion, then take our VIP flight over the vineyards.
Just the two of you and the pilot in the balloon, you do need the pilot. Our service is the finest, and we respect your privacy and intimacy during the flight.
Champagne and chocolates in flight and a cooked breakfast on landing.
Call our office on 1300 807 024 the night before you fly between 6:30 – 7:00pm to check the weather and to confirm the meeting time. If you have any last minute questions before you go, now is the time to ask. You will be talking to a human – not a machine!
IMPORTANT: Times below are approximates only. Please only refer to your designated time given the day before your flight
Normally at 45 minutes before sunrise we will meet at the Mercure Resort, on the corner of Broke and McDonald Road, for a quick introduction and briefing before boarding our 4WD to take you to your launch site. Make sure you don’t forget your camera.
For clothing, we recommend long trousers, covered shoes and a long-sleeved top/jacket. Natural fibres are best. Should you be tall, or a bit thin on top (like the pilot!) then we suggest a cap.
Once we arrive at the launch site the pilot and ground crew get to work inflating the balloon. You are welcome to join in or stand back and enjoy the spectacle.
Following the launch, relax as you take to the skies above the beautiful Hunter Valley. Take in the views and soak up the experience of an intimate balloon flight. You will be aloft for about 1 hour before coming back to earth.
Earn your breakfast or not, it is up to you. Once landed the balloon is packed away and the ground crew are there to drive us back to the Mercure Resort for the tradition glass of bubbles and breakfast.
A champagne celebration hosted by your pilot follows the flight. Enjoy the log fire in winter or relax in the gardens in summer as we celebrate your flight in the traditional way.
