If you want an adventure – but not an adrenaline rush – a serene hot-air balloon trip across the Barossa might be for you. Take a one-hour flight with Barossa Balloon Adventures and you’ll float across the valley, watch the sun come up over the Barossa Ranges, maybe spot a kangaroo bouncing away below or even drop down to say g’day to vineyard workers toiling in the vines. Second-generation balloonist Justin Stein has 23 years’ flying experience and an impeccable safety record. Wake early for pick-up by the Barossa Balloon Adventures van, test the wind and watch the team set up the balloon before a gentle take off. A meditative hour later and you’ll help pack up the balloon like a big sleeping bag before enjoying a gourmet breakfast.
This tour roams across the Barossa, the fertile region that early colonist Johannes Menge praised as “the cream, the whole cream and nothing but the cream”. Today it’s home to dozens of famous wineries and food experiences.
