Your Barossa Balloon Adventures Hot Air Ballooning Experience

What happens on the day …

Daily Flights All Year – Weather permitting

Pre-Flight Check-In

Ballooning is very weather dependent and your flight may be cancelled due to unsuitable weather conditions.  Please call our office on (08) 8562 3111 between 5.00 and 5.30pm the evening before your scheduled flight to check if the weather is OK and to confirm the meeting time. If you have any last minute questions about your hot air ballooning experience before you go, now is the time to ask. You will be talking to a human….not a machine!

Next Morning Meeting Place

Your pilot and crew will meet you approx 2 hours before sunrise (The time varies throughout the year) at Barossa Balloon Adventures home base. The address is 71 Stonewell Road, Nuriootpa, which is approximately 75km north east of Adelaide, South Australia.

Once everybody is assembled and signed in, your pilot will give you a briefing before you board our comfortable 4wds all with forward facing seats and air-conditioning throughout.
Don’t forget to bring your cameras as there will be some amazing photo opportunities along the way. The Barossa Valley is famous for having some of the most gorgeous landscapes in all of Adelaide.

Let’s Go

Now the adventure really begins. We will drive to the best launch site for the morning. The launch site is chosen according to the wind speed and direction. We have a dozen different launch sites around the region. We know it’s early but now is a good opportunity to get to know your pilot and crew and ask any questions you may have. Also watch as your pilot tests the lower wind conditions by releasing and tracking a party balloon filled with helium.

Inflate the Balloon

Once we arrive at the launch site your pilot and crew will inflate the balloon ready for take off. You are welcome to join in with the preparation and discover how we get these huge balloons in the air. This whole process takes about 30-40 minutes.

We Launch!

Jump on board, one last briefing and then it’s up, up and away! Wave goodbye to the crew, they will follow on the ground and meet you when you land. Time to relax and take in the amazing 360⁰ views. Experience the peace and beauty of floating over the country side as the sun is rising. You will fly for about an hour before landing.

Landing and Pack-up

Once you have landed your crew will meet you and it’s time to pack the balloon away. Feel free to join in the fun, or stand back and take the opportunity to take a few more photos. Hop back in our comfy vehicles and it’s back to breakfast.

Barossa Breakfast

The morning ends with a delicious gourmet breakfast back at home base. Relax and chat with your fellow passengers and pilot about the mornings events, whilst sipping sparkling wine and indulging in the best Barossa produce.
