Cloud 9 Balloon Flights

Ballooning is one of life’s great aerial adventures beginning at the crack of dawn from one of our two flight locations, we offer you the choice of both countryside and city flights. Sydney – Departing from in and around Parramatta (20 minutes from the Sydney CBD), you will enjoy the view of one of the world’s most spectacular skylines. The Sydney Harbour Bridge, Sydney Tower, Olympic Stadium and the Blue Mountains in the west, all surrounded by beautiful parks and gardens; tree lined suburbs and rolling country side.

Cloud 9 Balloon flights will show you the country side south and north of Sydney with flights in the wine growing district of the Hunter Valley.

Cloud 9 maintains its unblemished safety record and reputation for quality and service by investing heavily in both the finest personnel and latest equipment. All flights are an hour in duration and for your safety and convenience we only carry out a single flight each morning.

The champagne breakfast post flight is delicious and enjoyed at historic buildings, homesteads and wineries as tradition dictates to bring you gently back to earth. All passengers receive a commemorative flight certificate to make their flight with Cloud 9 even more unforgettable.
