Skydiving in Sydney

Home > Sydney > Adventure | Courses
Published November 16th 2010
There is an old idiom that people who claim to be scared of heights are really scared of falling. If that is the case, then surely the prospect of voluntarily falling from a great height is akin to a type of insanity. Regardless, it seems that for those with a yen for an adrenaline spike, there is no greater rush than skydiving.

The tagline of Simply Skydive is "fear is the thief of dreams." With this motto in mind, many daring sydney-siders have taken the 40 minute drive to Penrith Lakes in order to have a tandem skydive. A tandem skydiver will be attached to a duly qualified instructor.

For a 14,000 foot jump the price is $329 per person, although discounts are provided for group bookings of over 7 people.

Alternatively, Skydiving Sydney charges $285 per person Monday to Friday and $339 on Saturdays and Sundays. Based at North Beach in Wollongong, divers can enjoy a towering view of the beach as they plummet from their great height (in the off chance that they choose to open their eyes).

If you are willing to drive further afield, Just Jump Skydive is located in the Hunter Valley. For $335, a 14,000 foot dive can be arranged for up to 15 people. The added bonus lies in the fact that those of your cohort who are unwilling to risk life and limb are able to enjoy the delicious wines of the region while watching you take flight.
