Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Mum is a busy woman. She’s constantly juggling work, kids, sport, a social life… the list goes on. What she really wants this year is an opportunity to just stop and do something for herself or enjoy some special time with you. So we’ve put together this Mother’s Day gifting guide, from taking to the sky for a hot air balloon ride to a visit to one of our day spas and more, we’re certain that each of these is sure to please.

Hot Air Ballooning in the Hunter

Treat Mum to the flight of a lifetime over Spicers Guesthouse and Australia’s oldest wine region, the Hunter Valley, with a sunrise hot air balloon flight. Launching from your designated site, your Beyond Ballooning balloon will float above the picturesque cellar doors of Pokolbin, Lovedale, Rothbury or Broke to 2000 feet or more where you will feel the sensation of no movement at all as you glide effortlessly through the crisp morning air.

Your experience includes a 1 hour balloon flight, digital photo package and an à la carte breakfast to finish off your exhilarating morning.

Cost is $279 per person. Bookings are essential.
