HIGHLIGHTS OF OUR CANOWINDRA BALLOON FESTIVAL FLIGHTS
Festival flights over the historic “Balloon Capital of Australia” last
for 50 minutes to 1 hour flying time depending on available landing
sites. We recommend you allow at least three to four hours with us.

colourful balloons is the ultimate ballooning experience. Flights are
conducted by one of our highly experienced resident commercial pilots
who love to be rostered to fly during the festival as they get a “buzz”

certificate and a champagne picnic breakfast. We also cater for non
flying accompanying friends who are welcome to follow the balloons in
their own vehicle. If they wish to join you for breakfast please order
this, as an extra at the time of your booking. Ballooning is a magic
