Skydiving in Sydney

Step out of your comfort zone and experience the thrill of soaring through the air thousands of metres above Sydney. For adrenaline junkies, there is nothing better than sky diving. Whether tandem or solo, you'll get a pristine bird's-eye view of Sydney's coast.

Skydiving Sydney

First-timers and veterans will find that Skydiving Sydney caters to all experience levels. As Australia's largest multi-state skydiving company, Skydiving Sydney offers plenty of options for your adventure. For starters, they have the largest fleet of skydiving jet engines in the county - not to mention 40 years of experience under their belt. Falling out of an airplane can be a terrifying and simultaneously exhilarating experience to say the least, but this company has serviced more than 2 million skydivers, an unmatched record.

Skydiving Sydney is located 55 minutes from Sydney Central Business District, offering tandem and solo skydive opportunities. If you want to book it remotely, they even have an iPhone app.

Skydive the Beach Sydney

Skydive the Beach Sydney is the area's only beach skydiving experience. With a 100 percent safety record, this company offers tandem skydiving from Australia's highest altitude of up to 4,570 metres directly over North Wollongong Beach. You'll free-fall faster than 200 kilometres an hour for up to a whopping 65 seconds, and then float under canopy for five to seven minutes soaking up magnificent views of Wollongong and Sydney's southern beaches.

This company's drop zone, located one hour outside of Sydney, provides free midweek return transfers to Sydney's Central Business District.

Sydney North Coast

Soar like never before with Sydney North Coast. This company blends an ultimate rush with professionalism and expertise. Their instructors are accredited by the Australian Parachute Federation with more than 1 million jumps and almost 500 years combined experience. Since 1981, this company has had a 100 percent tandem safety record.

You can choose from several heights, starting at 2,743 metres. The higher you go, the longer the sailing. The parachute deploys at 1,540 metres, leaving several minutes to soar like a bird. Opt for the camera package and you'll get to relive your experience on DVD and photos. If you prefer to watch instead of jumping, spectators are welcome for free.

Helicopter Skydive

Another option is Sydney's Helicopter Skydive - the only heli-dive in the Southern Hemisphere. This brand new experience is truly one-of-a-kind. Board a helicopter and strap up for a tandem skydive for a dose of adrenaline. With a professional skydiver strapped to your back, you'll fall over New South Wales' famed Blue Mountains while basking in amazing views of Sydney Harbour, including its highlights of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House.

There's more than a 60 seconds of free-fall before your chute opens and you float safely back to the ground. Don't miss out on this unique experience.

Whichever option you choose, you're sure to have the time of your life.
