Take to the skies over Mudgee as the best hot air balloon pilots in the country vie for the title of Australian Hot Air Ballooning Champion!
The skies over Mudgee will be alive with colour and excitement from the 26th to the 31st May as, for the first time ever, Mudgee becomes the venue for the Australian Hot Air Ballooning Championship. Each day will see upward of twenty hot air balloons from all around the country launch together at sunrise and float majestically over the beautiful Mudgee region.
Book a Mudgee balloon flight from Sunday 26th May to Friday 31st May 2019 for a front row seat at the Australian Hot Air Ballooning Championships. Your balloon will launch and fly along, following the competition field as they complete their competition tasks. Watch from the air as the competition pilots navigate the winds to achieve set tasks, using the breeze to steer to set points or targets. Your pilot will provide commentary as the competition tasks progress.
The excitement begins just before dawn as more than twenty hot air balloons are inflated in the launch field - make sure to have your camera ready, it's quite the spectacle - then take off and drifting over the gorgeous Mudgee region for an hour in the company of a fleet of hot air balloons. Celebrations continue after the flight back at Blue Wren Wines with a delicious buffet breakfast and a sparkling wine tasting to wrap up an exciting and fun-filled morning.
Spaces are limited so book early.
