Welcome to the Barossa Valleys Balloon Adventures web site, we hope you find it helpful and easy to use.
Balloon Adventures has been a family owned and operated business since 1986.
We have flown thousands of very happy people of all ages over the years. We are an accredited hot air ballooning company approved through the Civil
Aviation Safety Authority. We have a highly experienced team with your safety and enjoyment as our primary concern.
Your experience starts when we meet you at the picturesque Peter Lehmann Wines winery nestled in amongst the vineyards on the edge of Tanunda, one and a half hours before sunrise.
From there our team checks the prevailing wind conditions and chooses the best launch site for the day, we have about 17 different sites throughout the scenic country side to choose from.
Once at the launch site we then inflate the giant colourful balloon. Inflation takes about half an hour. Then it's up, up and away for an experience of a lifetime. Imagine, floating above the Barossa, drifting with the breeze and not a care in the world. Ballooning is probably the most romantic form of transportation, from the traditional wicker basket to the champagne breakfast.
We fly with the wind for approximately an hour which gives you plenty of time to take photos and just enjoy the sense of freedom drifting with the breeze. Then when we land, our support vehicle arrives, we pack the balloon away, then head off to pop some corks and enjoy some of the local bubbly and fine Barossa food. After breakfast everyone is then officially certified a "Balloonatic" with your own flight certificate. So in total you're with us for approximately 5 hours.
After we farewell you, feel free to explore the many sites, sounds and tastes that the Barossa has to offer. You can choose either a self drive tour or one of the many tour operators, from vintage cars to trike motorbike tours.
“You are very good at your job...
obviously the flying is a given that you are good at that, but you also have the ability to make getting up so early worthwhile
before people leave the ground, and the mundane and not so exciting tasks/instructions seem not so mundane!
So thank you for your sense of humour and fun, it certainly adds to the ‘adventure’!”
Thanks again, Amie.
We fly 7 days a week, all year round, weather permitting and we can even provide gift vouchers on request for that special person. The flight lasts approximately 1 hr...the memories last a lifetime.
Balloon Adventures are also specialists in corporate advertising, TV work, stunt work and special events.
We have flown balloons for Kodak, Telecom, Benson and Hedges, Ford, Hyatt, Sagasco, and have appeared at agricultural shows,
