This made-in-Australia globetrotting show is truly quite legendary, selling out in places like Sydney Opera House, Raffles Singapore and London's West End. In this, its 20th birthday year of touring, it returns to Hunter Valley Resort but be warned: it'll sell out here too, so early booking is essential!
Chaos greets audiences as soon as they walk through the door. In this fully immersive experience, the audience becomes diners in the infamous 'Faulty' restaurant, served a 3-course meal by Basil, Sybil and Manuel. Expect lashings of laughter, bowls full of spontaneity and as much audience participation as individual audience members want. And with 70% of the show improvised, no two performances are ever the same.

The annual Balloon Aloft Hunter Valley Fiesta will take to the skies over the Hunter Valley from the 28th September to 1st October 2018 in an amazing display of colour and excitement! Each day will see upward of twenty-five hot air balloons from all around the country launch together at sunrise and float majestically over the Hunter Valley wine country. Come join in the excitement as a passenger or follow along from the ground.
The best way to view the Fiesta is definitely as passengers on board one of the twenty or more balloons that will take to the skies at sunrise each morning. You can book your space on one of our fiesta flights for the experience of a lifetime; the excitement begins just before dawn as more than twenty hot air balloons are inflated in the launch field - make sure to have your camera ready, it's quite the spectacle - then take off and drifting over the Hunter Valley vineyards for an hour in the company of a fleet of hot air balloons. Celebrations continue after the flight back at Peterson House Winery with live music, a gourmet breakfast and a champagne tasting to wrap up an exciting and fun-filled morning.
A combination of food, wine and opera in the vineyards. Save the date: Saturday 24 November 2018 at Hope Estate.
