National Ballooning Championships

Community Event

2 May 2022 to 7 May 2022 Annual Event

Following the postponement of the 2021 National Ballooning Championships, organisers have confirmed the new dates for 2022 at Northam, Western Australia.

Balloon pilots from across Australia will descend on the town to compete in the National Ballooning Championships and test their skills and secure a spot in the World Championships.

The week-long visual spectacle will commence with the Shire of Northam’s Elevate Festival. The family-friendly festival will include a number of ballooning themed activities, food and beverage options, markets, music, entertainment and up-close hot air balloons. The striking Balloon Glow will see balloon baskets sit together on the ground and fire up to inflate and glow in the night to a musical soundtrack (weather permitting)

The National Ballooning Championships are organised by Northam Ballooning Events and supported by Tourism WA and The Shire of Northam. The National Ballooning Championships offer a fantastic day out in the Avon Valley.
