So whether you are just passing through on your travels, staying at the local Canowindra Caravan Park or in the close by towns of Gooloogong, Eugowra, Forbes, Parkes and Cudal, this is an experience you don’t want to miss out on.
Because of its still air, cool mornings and warm days, Canowindra is often referred to as ‘The Hot Air Ballooning Capital of Australia’ The magic of flying in a hot air balloon will simply enchant you and the friendly pilot and crew will make sure that you fully enjoy your flight offering you loads of excitement, thrills, romance and new experiences that will leave you with a lifetime of memories.

Nothing could be more magical.
After an early morning wake up call to start your day, you will see the gentle giant take shape, rising from nothing into a majestic personal vehicle of flight.The hot air balloon has virtually no sense of motion and only the noise of the burner is heard as you gently lift off into the air. Sit back and enjoy the ride, leave all your cares on the ground and revel in the peace and tranquillity of hot air ballooning. You are bound to become a “balloonatic” so be sure to bring your camera or video to capture all those magical photos and memories. Your adventure will be celebrated with a champagne toast, and you also receive a First Flight Certificate and memorabilia, providing you with even more than life-long memories.
