Sydney Hot Air Ballooning

Sydney Hot Air Ballooning

Take that special someone for the ride of a lifetime with a great Sydney hot air ballooning package. The wondrous landscape of the Blue Mountains will open up below you, as will the great city scenes of Sydney. When you go Sydney hot air ballooning, you'll not only get some great Australian photos, but you'll be setting the mood for a great romantic day.

The Greater Blue Mountains Area will unfold below your eyes as you soar further and further away from bustling Sydney and get into the real quiet of nature. Sydney hot air ballooning deals are done early in the morning to take advantage of the rising sun and calmer wind currents. You won't have to listen to the propane jets all the time when the cool breeze carries you swiftly about.

The Blue Mountains get their name due to the blue mist that's formed there. The mist occurs when temperatures rise, which causes the oils in the Eucalyptus species of the area to evaporate and float up into the air. The way the sun hits this evaporated oil makes the mountains look blue.

Views of the Hawkesbury River, Paramatta River, and Lake Burragorang in the far distance will all be visible. You'll also float across some of the great parks dotting the outskirts of Sydney, like Mount Tomah Botanical Gardens, Bents Basin State Conservation Area, Mitchell Park, and Ku-Ring-Gai Chase National Park.

And don't forget all the great cityscapes you'll be seeing as well. Sydney is one of the most architecturally-diverse cities in the entire world, and you'll be amazed at the buildings around you seem to rise and fall in step with the surrounding landscapes.

The morning package leaves at 5 AM in summer and 6 AM in winter, and will last more than 3 hours. You'll see how the hot air balloon is laid out and inflated, and then given some safety tips. You'll cruise through the air for up to an hour, and you can have your choice of a weekday flight or one on the weekend. Either way, you'll get a great champagne breakfast when you return back to that morning's meeting point.
