What to Expect
Experience freefalling at over 200 km/h with an experienced skydive instructor on the Sunshine Coast.
You should allow for half a day on the date of your skydive. The dropzone is located in Caloundra, the closest skydiving location to Brisbane. Come in casual clothes and comfortable closed footwear (no flip flops, please!), and check in at reception and the staff will guide you through the next steps.
Your skydiving instructor will give you a safetybriefing and get you geared up before taking off. A 20 min scenic flight to altitude will follow, with stunning panoramic views of the Sunshine Coast.
At 14,000 feet, the door opens and … pure adrenaline in freefall! Experience a rush like no other, with stunning views over the ocean with up to 60 seconds of freefall time.
Once the parachute is released, enjoy a stunning gentle ride under the canopy back to the beach. It takes between five and seven minutes to land, giving you plenty of time to admire the views as you drift closer to land.
There are video and photo packages available, and you'll also receive a certificate as proof you leapt from a plane!

There are risks involved, but thanks to the advancements in technology, regulation and training, skydiving has become much safer over the last few decades. Safety devices like Automatic Activation Devices (AADs), will automatically trigger the deployment of the reserve parachute in the unlikely event that the instructor is not able to operate the equipment. The Operator reviews all the aircraft and gear periodically, and all the instructors are highly experienced with thousands of skydives each, which ensures that your skydiving experience is as safe as possible.
Photo and video packages can be purchased as extras.
