Australia’s largest hot air balloon festival attracts more than 5,000 visitors to the region. The Cabonne Community Glow is the signature event when, this year, 15 hot air balloons will inflate just after sunset and then light up like giant 20-metre high lightbulbs and then synchronise their lights to a mix of the best music of the past two decades. As well as the balloons, the event promises a range of local food and wine, and excellent night markets. Camping is available at the Canowindra showgrounds. Booking is essential.
