The Hunter is a fantastic green hilled blanket to float over coloured smokey grey shimmering forests and vineyards of straight lines surrounded but blue hazy mountains shrouded in mist.

Kangaroos bound from the shadow of your balloon and you can see farms of grazing horses and cattle. In the Hunter in Winter it's cool enough in the afternoon to do balloon flights then, which make a lovely change from the usual early mornings, either way it's one of Australia's premier wine regions and a lush and truely magical place to visit for the wine but made even more beguiling place by air. And only two hours drive from Sydney.
