About your guides

Founded in 1999 by a pair of optimistic young mates, Skydive Australia has grown from the small beachfront operation of Skydive the Beach Sydney in Wollongong NSW, using a single six-seater Cessna 206 to a company with seventeen premium drop zones Australia wide – and more planned.

Skydive Australia is staffed by an energetic young team, passionate about delivering the perfect skydiving adventure. Their skydiving instructors are highly experienced in their field, where many compete on a national and international level. They’re backed by the best flight and ground crew ever.

    FAQ

    • What should I wear and bring? We recommend wearing comfortable casual clothes. Shorts are fine. The tour operator will provide you with a pair of skydiving pants or a jumpsuit to wear over your clothes. Secure footwear that is not going to fall off is a must. No flip flops, thongs, hiking boots or heels can be worn. Enclosed shoes such as runners or sandshoes are best. Don't forget your sense of fun and adventure! 
    • Where do we start and finish? Your activity starts and finishes in Sydney. You'll meet and be returned to outside Wake Up Hostel on 814 George Street, close to Central Station.
    • How long does the activity go for? Your activity goes for approximately 6 hours. Sometimes there may be delays due to unforeseen circumstances, such as weather (eg certain wind and cloud conditions) and directions from Air Traffic Control.
    • What days does the activity operate? Every day, with multiple departures! 
    • Who can come? Everyone over 12 years of age is welcome to tandem skydive, provided they meet the physical requirements and weight restrictions. The tour operator reserves the right to refuse a skydive based on their assessment based on age, weight and health to ensure everyone’s safety. If you have any questions, concerns or have anything you need to discuss, please contact the tour operator directly to avoid disappointment on the day.
    • Are there any other age requirements? Any person wishing to skydive who is under 18 years of age needs their parent or guardian’s written permission or must be accompanied by their parent or guardian on the day.
    • What are the physical requirements? You need to be in generally good health being with an average fitness level. Weight restrictions also apply.
    • What are the weight restrictions? The max weight is 110 kg. If you weigh over 95 kgs, additional charges apply as follows: over 95 kg = $25; over 100 kg = $50; max 110 kg = $100.
    • Is it safe? Recent statistics in Australia stated that 1 in 10,000 skydives resulted in accident or injury. Compared with the statistics for registered cars in reported accidents being 9.8%, the most dangerous part of your day is likely to be driving to the skydiving centre!

        15,000 feet tandem skydive

        This was an amazing experience!! On a sunny August day with a perfect blue sky, I completed my first (but not last!) tandem skydive over Wollongong. I had booked a 7am slot and left the day relatively free because it is all subject to weather. The evening before I was advised my check-in time would be slightly later (7:30), but I was very fortunate that there were no weather delays on the day. I had the option of an ultimate photo and video package (more expensive because you have a second skydiver taking the footage) and I have no regrets about doing that. The video and photos are fantastic. Instructor Andy was fantastic and helped me feel really relaxed and confident, and Joy, who did the photos and videos, also helped make it a really fun experience. I expected to be nervous and maybe a bit scared, but the whole experience was pure excitement and fun from the moment I arrived. We were able to land on the beach which was really special, and now two days later I'm still buzzing from the experience. Highly recommend.

        I was on a high for days

        This is the best fun ever! If you ever want to try jumping out of a perfectly good aircraft with a South African strapped to your back then I suggest doing it here!

        Amazing freefall, skydive and coolest instructor Dan

        I had the best experience of my life and it's all because of the staff of Wollongong Skydiving and especially because of my instructor Dan. He is the best. He took the best videos and photos and made me feel so safe and secured during the entire dive. You can actually enjoy the adventure rather than being scared and nervous because of height and it was because of DAN. I love you mate. You are the best.
