Supporting Parramatta Mission

The cost of your ticket goes directly to support the operational costs of the hot-air balloons display and Parramatta Mission who, for more than 40 years, have provided services to those in our community who are facing homelessness, crisis and those living with mental illness. Parramatta Mission thanks you for your support.

Terms and Conditions:

  • Children under 6 years are unable to ride due to safety reasons.
  • Prior to booking, individuals must ensure they have no medical condition that will affect their participation. A tethered balloon ride requires the passenger to embark and disembark the balloon basket without assistance, therefore any person with limb, spinal injuries or a disability that inhibits their ability to climb or the elderly or frail, are therefore advised not to participate.
  • Should you have any questions with regard to a pre-existing medical condition please ask your pilot as in most cases these will not prevent you from participating.
  • Balloons are tethered (tied to the ground). They will rise to a height just above the tree level and descend.
  • Rides are approximately 3-5mins in duration and are restricted to two (2) people at a time
  • All personal effects such as cameras and videos are carried entirely at the risk of the passenger.
