What to See and Do Around Us

Wine Country Ballooning offices are located on Lovedale Rd, just off the Lovedale turn off on the new Hunter Expressway, the gateway to the Hunter Valley. Our passenger meeting point is at the Mercure Resort, Hunter Valley Gardens.  This is located in Pokolbin at the junction of Broke and McDonald road. Either of these two locations are a great place to start exploring the valley.  With over 200 wineries, places to stay and things to do you can be as busy or as laid back as you want to be.

The major resorts of Crowne Plaza, Cypress Lakes, The Vintage and the Mercure are all within 5 minutes drive and you are never far from somewhere fantastic to eat.  The towns of Cessnock and Branxton are right on our doorstep and the historic towns of Broke and Wollombi are only 15 minutes drive away.
