Book this 2 day package and get out of Sydney to explore the picturesque Hunter Valley wine region. This value for money package includes return transfers from Sydney CBD, a winery tour, overnight accomodation and an incredible sunrise hot air balloon flight over the vineyards!

After a day of sightseeing, relax and settle in at your overnight accomodation in the Hunter Valley before a peaceful sunrise hot air balloon flight the next morning at 5am.

On Day 2, you will be collected just before dawn and watch in awe as the hot air balloon inflates in front of your eyes and you begin to effortlessly float up above over the vineyards of the Hunter Valley.
