There are so many things to explore in Australia and skydiving is no exception. It’ll not only be a great thrill but you‘ll also be able to explore it from a birds-eye view!
I have rounded up the top 7 hotspots to skydive in Australia.
Being the coastal capital of Australia, Melbourne is coupled with ample natural beauty. You can see the shores of Port Bay and the Bass Strait from a height of 15,000 feet, which will look even more spectacular from such a height. In Melbourne, there are three locations where you can skydive – St. Kilda, Great Ocean Road, and Yarra Valley.
Considering Sydney as the drop zone can be the best thing for skydiving as Sydney is blessed with lots of skydiving locations which also boasts of amazing views and breathtaking skyline. It’ll offer a gorgeous backdrop of the Wollongong Beach and Newcastle Beach and will also feel the adrenaline rush of 60 seconds after jumping off the plane at a height of up to 15,000 feet and before gliding the earth smoothly.
Brisbane is also having many top skydiving places in Australia, which is also known as Brizzie. From these places, you can have the sweeping views of Bribie Islands and Moreton Bay which are just so stunning that will make you take another skydive.
Yet another amazing place for skydiving in Australia is Cairns. It also offers some beautiful tropical landscape views. You’ll view the beauty of The World Heritage Rainforest, Trinity Inlet and the Great Barrier Reef. Better to reach Cairns and dive from a height of 14,000 feet to catch a panoramic view of all of these places.
York is counted among the top places to skydive in Australia, offering some of the most spectacular views that you may have not seen before. York is a historic town, located 90 minutes away from Perth. You’ll find many agencies offering transfer services from Perth which you can opt for. You’ll also get a fully-equipped suit to jump from the height of 14,000 feet to witness the eagle’s view of York before landing safely on the ground.
Byron Bay will also offer you a spectacular skydiving experience. You’ll be coming down at a speed of 200 km per hour and then sway in the sky where you can enjoy some of the most amazing sky views and stunning scenery. This activity ends in an hour in which you can have a video of 5-7 minutes with nearly 40 photos.
If you are looking for the nearest location for skydiving near Perth, Rockingham is the place you should head to! From here you can get the splendid views of Shoalwater Islands Marine Park, Penguin Island, Rottnest Island, Cockburn Sound, as well as Garden Island. You will get a never before freefalling experience from a height of 14,000 feet before you touch the ground of beautiful beachside Rockingham Naval Memorial Park.
Things to remember in Skydiving
The legal age for skydiving in Australia is 12 years. Participants under 18 years of age should take up this activity under the guidance of a parent or a legal guardian.
You should be attentive during your briefing and always follow the instructions. Make sure your costume is intact with no tear to confirm your safety. Being dependent on the weather, your skydiving may postpone if the weather is not conducive.
So, are you ready to leap to fall from a height of almost 15,000 feet? Better to head to Australia to catch the best views of the country and one of the most thrilling sport.
