Canowindra Balloon Tour

First stop Katoomba for lunch.

Then to our accomodation for the week, Canowindra Showground.

Every April Australia’s largest hot air balloon festival and the Canowindra community welcomes visitors to the region. Canowindra is a small but strong rural community situated in the picturesque and fertile Belubula Valley, three and a half hours drive west of Sydney, New South Wales.

Canowindra has a long history of hot air ballooning dating back to the first modern hot air balloon flight in Australian in 1966. Attracting balloon pilots to Canowindra’s wide-open spaces, rolling hills and gentle winds, Canowindra became known as the “Balloon Capital of Australia”.
