“Leap out of a plane that is cruising at up to 15,000 feet, then freefall at over 200km/hr for up to 60 seconds before floating under a canopy for 5-7 minutes, until you land on North Wollongong Beach. It’s intense and completely serene all at the same time. For something a little different, try a night jump when it’s the full moon”

“If you take a day trip to Wollongong go for a skydive! Get adventurous! :) Its great to rent a car and drive down for the day. Dont miss Kiama which is a cute little seaside town and on the way back there is a great sightseeing road for some country scenery through Jamberoo. Tip: stop at Jamberoo Pub for an amazing meal and a cold one on your way back home. The drive is usually 90mins each way. ”
