A $5 raffle ticket I bought at the 2012 Old&Gold Festival resulted in one of the most memorable experiences I’ve had since moving here a decade ago. Hovering above Mount Chincogan while watching the sun rise over the Pacific Ocean is really quite breathtaking. The Byron Bay Ballooning crew are at the top of their game: chief pilot Thomas Dattler was the 2011 and 2012 Australian Ballooning Champion while senior pilot Chris Dewhirst manages a team of highly qualified professional pilots. Highly recommended.
