When: Friday 28th September – Monday 1st October – 5:00am – 4:00pm
The annual Balloon Aloft Hunter Valley Fiesta will take to the skies over the Hunter Valley from the 28th September to 1st October 2018 in an amazing display of colour and excitement! Each day will see upward of twenty-five hot air balloons from all around the country launch together at sunrise and float majestically over the Hunter Valley wine country. Come join in the excitement as a passenger or follow along from the ground.
The best way to view the fiesta is definitely as passengers on board one of the twenty or more balloons that will take to the skies at sunrise each morning. You can book your space on one of our fiesta flights for the experience of a life time; the excitement begins just before dawn as more than twenty hot air balloons are inflated in the launch field – make sure to have your camera ready, it’s quite the spectacle – then take off and drifting over the Hunter Valley vineyards for an hour in the company of a fleet of hot air balloons. Celebrations continue after the flight back at Peterson House Winery with live music, a gourmet breakfast and a champagne tasting to wrap up an exciting and fun-filled morning.
When: Second Sunday every month – 10:00am – 3:00pm
Dalwood Markets at Dalwood Estate is held monthly on the second Sunday. With Art, Fashion, Food, Handcrafted and much more to discover there is no better time to discover Hunter Valley’s premier Vineyard. For more information visit their facebook page.
