Sydney Wollongong Tandem Skydive up to 15,000ft Weekend

Highlights

  • Skydive up to 15,000ft

  • Freefall up to 60 seconds

  • Transfers from Sydney available on Friday's

  • Amazing coastline and beach views

  • Reach speeds over 200km/hr

  • Australia's highest jump

Witness Wollongong and its spectacular beaches from a whole new perspective with a tandem skydive up to 15,000ft. Once the plane has reached the drop zone, on the count of three you and a qualified skydive instructor will find yourselves skydiving back down to the ground below. Reaching speeds of up to 200km per hour and a free fall time of around 60 seconds, if you've been wanting an experience to truly make you feel alive, skydiving is certainly it.

Once your parachute has been pulled you'll enjoy around 5 to 7 relaxing minutes of leisurely floating, giving you the opportunity to really take in the spectacular scenery below. Being Sydney's only beach skydive, you'll skydive directly over the ocean, offering up views of the wonderful Sydney coastline. Jump during whale and dolphin season and there's a good chance you might even be able to spot one or two of these beautiful animals while skydiving - no guarantees, however.

The Wollongong Skydive drop zone is located at Stuart Park, George Hanley Drv, Wollongong and is approximately a one hour drive from Sydney.
