Owner description: Barossa Balloon Adventures conduct hot air balloon flights over the Barossa Valley. We have over 26 years of safe flying. Your experience starts at Peter Lehmann’s winery 1.5 hours before sunrise. Flight time is approximately an hour. On landing, the support vehicle arrives, the balloon is packed away, then it’s time to head off and pop some corks of the local bubbly and enjoy some fine Barossa food. The whole experience lasts about 5 hours.

My partner Dave and I had the most amazing experience in having a hot air balloon ride in April. It had been a dream of mine for a long time and I was lucky enough to be given it as a 50th birthday present. The scenery was amazing and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We will definitely be doing it again one day. Afterwards there was a fantastic champagne breakfast which of course we indulged in. Would like to thank Justin and his crew.

Justin and his crew gave us a fantastic Ballooning experience over the gorgeous autumnal colours of the Barossa Valley. Our takeoff and landing were perfect with the flight inbetween being an absolutely fantastic experience. This was capped off with a delicious champagne breakfast at Peter Lehmann wines. This was something I have had on my bucket list for about 20 years and I was not disappointed! My 79 year old mother also enjoyed the flight, little difficult for her getting in and out of the basket but apart from that she also had a great experience. Highly recommended.

Hi Anne K, thanks for your review. So glad you got to fly after 20 years of waiting! And seeing the patchwork of autumn colours from the balloon is great. Glad you found the experience fantastic.

Thoroughly enjoyable experience and a great way to celebrate a 60th Birthday. Watching the sunrise while floating in the hot air balloon was something that will last a life time. Justin the pilot and all the crew were fantastic to deal with all the way through, and made us feel safe at all times. The Barossa Valley is a beautiful place at anytime, but from the balloon it was spectacular. We finished the morning with a lovely breakfast supplied by Barossa Balloon Adventures at Peter Lehmann wines and then the obligatory wine tasting at the cellar door afterwards, a great way to start the day.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Sunrise from the balloon is certainly spectacular, and we've been seeing some amazing sunrises lately. Safety is a real priority here at Barossa Balloon Adventures, and Justin and crew do their best to make people feel safe and at ease. Even though Justin has flown over 2400 hours he realises that this was probably your first time! Really glad you enjoyed it and you felt safe.

The balloon flight over the picturesque Barossa Valley on a chilly but calm Autumn morning was a wedding anniversary to remember.

In the safe and capable of hands of Justin and crew, we had a fantastic experience - from the gentle take-off, watching the sunrise, drifting over Seppeltsfield and floating above the clouds, to the perfect landing which provided Sunday morning excitement for a local family's three young children and dog.

The morning was capped off with a tasty picnic breakfast prepared by Justin's wife, washed down with sparkling wine in the beautiful gardens of Peter Lehmann winery.

An experience we thoroughly recommend and will never forget.

Thank you so much for your review. And congratulations on your wedding anniversary, hot air ballooning is a beautiful way to celebrate. It's such a buzz for Justin to share his love of ballooning with others, so we're really glad that you enjoyed it.

Great way to start the day! The early rise was well worth it. We really enjoyed our flight from takeoff to perfect landing. We felt totally at ease with our experienced pilot Justin & the Barossa Balloon Adventures crew were spot on with all the details & made everyone feel welcome. Got some fantastic pics on our leisurely drift across the Barossa Valley. The gourmet breakfast after the flight was better than average too. Highly recommend

Thanks Debra A for your review, we really appreciate it. It's an awesome time of year to fly at the moment, with all the gorgeous autumn colours, so glad you got some great pics. Justin is a very experienced pilot, having been flying now for 23 years, and he is very good at putting people at ease. You just have to relax and take in the awesome views!
