Reviews
Make your way to the drop zone in Stuart Park, located just one hour south of Sydney CBD. Alternatively, get picked up at North Wollongong railway station or from selected locations around Sydney including Coogee Beach, Bondi Beach, Kings Cross or the Wake Up! Sydney Hostel.

Start with professional training from a qualified tandem master and learn what to expect on your skydive. After you suit up — the gear includes a harness and skydiving goggles — settle into the plane for a quick flight. Spectators can hang out in the viewing area to watch the skydivers, or even fly up with you for an additional fee (advise upon booking). 

When you reach maximum altitude, psych yourself up for a jump that has you free-falling for 60 seconds at insane speeds. When your tandem master pulls the parachute cord, you'll float under a colorful canopy for an additional 5- to 7-minute parachute ride to the ground. It's a good time to catch your breath and soak up the coastal views of Wollongong, the Southern Sydney beaches, Royal National Park and Illawarra. 

You’ll land next to one of the best surfing beaches in New South Wales. You'll be close to cafes, restaurants, cycling and walking paths, swimming pools, picnic and BBQ facilities, Wollongong Harbour and more if you want to hang out. Alternatively, take provided transportation back to the North Wollongong railway station or Sydney.

Each sky diver receives a commemorative skydive certificate. You can also buy video and photo packages.

This is really cool! I did it and i love to do it again. The experienced is beyond compare. When you're up there it wasn't really scary. Enjoy the view from the top, blue ocean and nice beach. Try it... a lifetime experienced that you won't regret.

This was a great experience and not nearly as scary as I thought it would be! The view of the beach and coast during the jump was beautiful and the instructors are all very nice! I was with John and he was great!!

Incredible experience! Highly recommend skydiving with this company! I wish I had known it would be an all day event left Sydney around 9am and returned around 6:30pm but the beach is beautiful and there is a cafe close by so I made the most of the day!

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.

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!

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...

Definitely a highlight to our trip!

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!
