What To Expect

Travel from Sydney to Wollongong, a seaside suburb that is known for great beaches, surfing, food, bars and shops. You have the option to drive to the drop zone yourself, perhaps taking the scenic Grand Pacific Drive, or you can choose pickup at central locations around Sydney such as Kings Cross, Bondi Beach or Coogee Beach (see Important Info tab for details). 

When you meet your professional skydiving instructor in Stuart Park, get started with introductions and a thorough safety briefing. Hear details about how the jump proceeds then put on the provided skydiving gear, including protective goggles and a harness. If friends want to watch you jump, they can head to a designated viewing area, or even go up with you in the plane for an additional fee (please arrange when booking).

A short flight takes you up to jump altitude. Marvel at the coastal scenery below you with clear views of the southern Sydney beaches, Illawarra and Royal National Park. When your plane reaches optimum altitude, your instructor securely fastens your harnesses together and gets ready for takeoff. Gather up your courage and jump with your instructor, feeling the adrenaline course through you as you free fall at high speed for about one minute. Then your instructor releases the parachute and you float gently for about five minutes before touching down on terra firma.

Your skydiving experience is commemorated with a complimentary skydive certificate, and you have the option to purchase video and photo packages of your jump. 

Afterward, you can find plenty of great options to celebrate at nearby beaches, cafes, bars and more, or you can return to Sydney with the provided transportation.

Ravindra_S, Jan 2023
The whole was just wonderful. From booking it on Viator, contact the tour operator, discussing about pickup/drop off, and doing the activity. Woody, who I jumped with was amazing. This was absolutely value of money. Seeing the world from 15000 ft above and then the jump is just breath taking. I would highly recommend doing it.
Wonderful

I highly recommend this tour! It was such a memorable experience for both of us. Although they gave us the wrong USB for the video/photo package we bought for my husband. I already sent an email to skydive Australia and informed them. I hope we can get an email confirmation soon.

Heather H, Dec 2016
Skydiving Australia is amazing! The Wollongong location is gorgeous from the sky. My instructor was Scott and he really focused on making sure everything was okay with my harness and preparing me for the jump. I was so nervous and my instructor definitely helped calm my nerves. Scott went beyond my standards when getting footage pictures and video of the jump and recorded prior to getting on the plane, while on the plane, views from the plane, and the entire skydive experience. I would recommend this trip and company to anyone. It was an experience I will never forget. I would definitely skydive with them again if I visit the area again. I loved it!

Sivakanth D, Sep 2016
Lifetime experience. Definitely tops of the list. Hurtling down at 200kmph and then the sudden tug as the parachute opens...literally flying in the air and then having a smooth landing.. worth every penny spent and then a lot more... luke my instructor was great and he even allowed me to handle the parachute for a minute....will definitely try this again...
I truly enjoyed this experience...
Qiana G, Jul 2016
I truly enjoyed this experience. There was a wait after the dive that I wish was eliminated, perhaps having a shuttle that runs more than once to take people back to the drop off locations would be awesome. However, beyond that I loved the experience and THANK YOU Luke for being an awesome guide!
