Hot Air Balloon Sydney for 1
There’s something undeniably romantic about hot air ballooning. From the moment your feet touch basket in the early hours of the morning to that photo-perfect second the sun creeps over the horizon illuminating everything below, it’s a majestic experience.
If you’re looking to book a flight for a special occasion or simply wish to tick it off your bucket list, various locations around Sydney offer hot air balloon riding, complete with breakfast and victory Champagne.
The three main regions for hot air ballooning in Sydney and its surrounds as the Macarthur Region, Hawkesbury River and the Hunter Valley. Want to see the Blue Mountains from above? Opt for a flight from Macarthur or the Hawkesbury River.
A balloon ride through the Hawkesbury region offers the unique experience of a very diverse landscape. Located at the foothills of the Blue Mountains, farmlands and forest meet river and mountain in this understated ride.
Start in Macarthur for spectacular views of the Blue Mountains from a distance. The landscape below is dotted with valleys and historical properties and, as Macarthur is only a 50 minute drive from the city centre, it’s very convenient to get to.

The wine region of the Hunter Valley is a popular spot for hot air ballooning. Private flights for two can be booked to mark special occasions - and they’re worth it, as the view of the vineyards below is phenomenal.

finder.com.au has access to track details from the product issuers listed on our sites. Although we provide information on the products offered by a wide range of issuers, we don't cover every available product. You should consider whether the products featured on our site are appropriate for your needs and seek independent advice if you have any questions.
Products marked as 'Promoted' or "Advertisement" are prominently displayed either as a result of a commercial advertising arrangement or to highlight a particular product, provider or feature.

We try to take an open and transparent approach and provide a broad based comparison service. However, you should be aware that while we are an independently owned service, our comparison service does not include all providers or all products available in the market.
Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.
