Overview

Mudgee was made for ballooning! With its rolling hills, surrounding mountains and beautiful valley, conditions are perfectly suited for hot air ballooning. Balloon Aloft Mudgee hot air ballooning adventures begin at sunrise and are generally scheduled for the first Saturday of each month.
