The national hot air ballooning championships will be blowing into Western Australia's Avon Valley region.

The event will be held in September in Northam, which made international headlines last year as the departure point for Russian pilot Fedor Konyukhov's record-breaking solo round-the-world balloon flight.

Premier Colin Barnett says the event will attract thousands of visitors, who are expected to generate $1.8 million in spending in the region.
