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 on 30 April.  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. Save the dates and experience the magnificent display of colour and skill.
