From booking online, making any inquiries re your flight, to gathering in the early morning hours with a hot cuppa provided; Damien and his experienced crew manage the whole experience with expertise.

Plenty of quality photo’s taken gives you the opportunity to buy at a low cost your enjoyable experience. Then, to top everything off, we enjoy a sumptuous breakfast at the Rivers Edge Cafe with a glass of sparkling wine. We all received our ‘certificates’ of the flight. Have been ballooning in Canberra, Melbourne, South Australia and Damien easily tops the lot.

Damien, Mo and I had the most amazing time on Tuesday morning to celebrate us both turning 70 this year. It will be something we will be talking about and remembering always. Thankyou. We wish you, your family and staff happiness

To Damien and the entire Windward crew our sincerest thanks for a wonderful experience. Our flight today in such amazing weather and good company will be a great memory for years to come. Russell’s son and daughter-in-law were the first in the family to flywith Windward and they and the rest of the family pooled resources to give me (Russell) a special 75th birthday gift — something he had to share with Diana (who is quick to point out that she is not yet 75!). Thank you
RUSSELL & DIANA – APRIL 2017
I would like to take this opportunity to say a huge, huge thank you for allowing me to take a hot air balloon experience with Windward Balloon Adventures on Sunday 24 April 2016. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect and I was rather nervous, especially when my wimpy friends decided it was too scary for them. However, I got the last laugh as they missed out on one of the best experiences of my life. The lift off was so smooth it was hard to believe we were actually moving. The flight was so peaceful, relaxing and serene it reminded me of being in a swimming pool lying on your back with your eyes closed and just gently floating, only so much better when your in the air. The professionalism of our pilot, Damien Hays, was outstanding. His knowledge and sense of humour remarkable. The crew again was outstanding. The whole ballooning experience was so professionally run from when we arrive and had coffee and biscuits to the full breakfast at the cafe and one I won’t forget in a hurry. Once again, thank you.
BEA – APRIL 2016
To everyone involved with our flight this morning, from our consultations via email and mobile (girls in the office first instigation of booking and sending of gift certificate for presentation), to the boys today (Leon, Damien and Andrew(?): I would like to let you know how much Sheridan and I enjoyed our flight this morning. The whole experience was magnificent. Your professionalism is certainly worthy of the tourism awards your business has been presented with. We loved every moment even having to wait due to fog, the early morning start and the cold, and then helping to pack up at the end. The ease of the journey was really quite unexpected and we were most surprised at the ability to land the basket on the trailer (I know that you have had a lot of practise Damien!). It was really special. Please pass on our thanks also to the staff at Fitzgeralds for the beautiful breakfast they prepared for our group today. It was delicious. Thank you for providing us with a memorable experience one we will treasure for always and wholeheartedly recommend. Yours sincerely,
DUKE FAMILY – JULY 2012
Hello, my partner and I just wanted to say a big thank you for a fantastic experience on Saturday. We loved every minute of the morning. The excitement of watching the balloon being filled with air, the first flame, then lift off. Our pilot Damian made it very relaxing with his commentary. And the breakfast was amazing as well. The scones were the best I’d ever had. So thanks again, I will highly recommend Windward to all my friends. It’s the best way to see the Avon Valley.
