Canowindra International Balloon Challenge

Saturday 21 April 2018 to Sunday 29 April 2018

See the magic and spectacle as over 20 hot air balloons take to the skies each morning and late afternoon in Canowindra every April, over a seven day period at the Canowindra International Balloon Challenge. The highlight is the Balloon Glow and night markets where you will enjoy local produce, wine, crafts and entertainment culminating in a display as the balloons light up synchronised to music.

Whilst there visit the Age of Fishes Museum (home of the State Fossil), wander down the historic main street or enjoy art galleries, wonderful coffee, cellar doors and quirky shopping.
