- Perfect Hunter Valley activity for romantics and celebrations

- Discover the incredible sensation of balloon flight
Soar like a bird over one of Australia’s premier wine regions with this superb hot air balloon flight in the Hunter Valley. Meeting at the Mercure Resort’s Hunter Valley Gardens in Pokolbin, you’ll be given a pre-flight safety briefing by your professional pilot then step into the basket, soon rising gently into the air for a one-hour flight that follows the direction of the wind. With just 10 passengers per basket, and sunrise flights available, this is a wonderful idea for romantic couples, or for anyone with reason to celebrate, as well as offering a unique view of Hunter Valley from above.
You’ll drift peacefully over Hunter Valley and its many prestigious vineyards, followed by a chase vehicle ready to pick you up on landing. Once the balloon is deflated and packed away you’ll return to the meeting point to toast this flight of a lifetime with a glass of the finest Hunter Valley bubbly and some delicious chocolates. This is an experience to treasure, intimate and completely unforgettable. If you’ve ever dreamt of taking a hot air balloon flight there are few better places to try it in Australia than the magnificent Hunter Valley.
