Northam to host Nationals again in 2017!

The Australian Ballooning Federation is pleased to award a sanction to the Northam Aero Club to host the 2017 Australian National Hot Air Ballooning Championships.

The Australian Nationals is the premier hot air balloon event in the Australian calendar and features some of the best balloonists in Australia together with invited pilots from overseas as they compete to win the title of National Champion. These championships will also be used to select the pilots who will represent Australia at the World Championships to be held in Austria in 2018.

The event will be held in and around the town of Northam & the Avon Valley between the 1st and 9th of September 2017. This event will build on the successful event that was run in 2015.

We wish to acknowledge the WA State Government's Royalties for Regions and the Shire of Northam for the support provided for the event and the Northam Natioanals organising committee for the huge amount of effort to get to this point. We would also like to thank the community of Northam for embracing our sport.

See you all in Northam in September!
