How do instant gifts work?
Skydive directly over North Wollongong Beach with a professional tandem master, jumping from an altitude of up to 15,000 feet. Experience the ultimate thrill of a one-minute free fall, then soak up coastal views of Wollongong and the Southern Sydney beaches while you drift down for a few more minutes under the parachute canopy. This small-group experience, limited to eight skydivers, includes round-trip coach transport from Sydney, which is located just one hour from the drop zone.

Start with professional training from a qualified tandem master and learn what to expect on your skydive. After you suit up — the gear includes a harness and skydiving goggles — settle into the plane for a quick flight. Spectators can hang out in the viewing area to watch the skydivers, or even fly up with you for an additional fee (advise upon booking).
When you reach maximum altitude, psych yourself up for a jump that has you free-falling for 60 seconds at insane speeds. When your tandem master pulls the parachute cord, you'll float under a colorful canopy for an additional 5- to 7-minute parachute ride to the ground. It's a good time to catch your breath and soak up the coastal views of Wollongong, the Southern Sydney beaches, Royal National Park and Illawarra.
You’ll land next to one of the best surfing beaches in New South Wales. Each sky diver receives a commemorative skydive certificate. You can also buy video and photo packages.

Amazing experience. ♡ It was also very easy to reschedule the date three times without any problems. One of our friends got a refund, cause of pandemic situations. Would definitely recommend this company. They also make very good videos & photos.

Would recommend W ollongong Skydive to anyone. I completed an amazing skydive yesterday (March 8) & for a 76th Birthday gift I say ‘Don’t miss it people,’ .This professional team from booking,instructors made. It a fun experience for all on board the plane. On landing all of our group that I spoke to would do it again in a heartbeat. Which is good to hear from people you have never met before. All comments were extremely positive & most of us coul not believe that we felt so relaxed & no nervousness thanks to the great instructors & organisation.

I did a first time tandem skydive with these guys yesterday and I would 100% recommend them. It was a perfect sunny bank holiday and even though it was incredibly busy, we were totally taken care of the whole way through. I was full of bravado before I jumped, no fear whatsoever, but when the doors of the plane opened and I saw my friend disappear out the door, my heart stopped. Massive shout out to my instructor Josh, he was so patient and funny and totally coached me through as I had a panic attack hurtling through the sky at 200km p/h! This was an incredible experience, and although today I am hoarse from screaming, and I still feel a prickle of fear just thinking about it, I would probably do it again. Thank you Josh and the Woolongong Crew, you guys are awesome.

Charlie you legend-Go Ninja Turtles! The experience was insane. Wollongong and surrounds make for a spectacular view.

Rachel R June 2020

This experience was AMAZING! I had always said id never be able to skydive but i bit the bullet and decided to give it a go and i am SO glad i did! The organising was great and the professional skydiver i was with was friendly and made me feel so comfortable and safe, thanks Biggsy! I actually wasn't nervous on the day at all to my surprise. The jump was like nothing else, the feeling you get when free-falling and seeing the world from that perspective is out of this world.

Absolutely the worst communication I’ve ever seen from a company while on Holiday. I do not recommend this company at all if coming from Sydney. They literally wasted our entire day but could have avoided it with a 30 second email.

Amazing experience is the first thing I have to say. Me and my buddy decided to drive instead of pick, once there everything is quick and easy from sign in to gear, you will be jumping out of a plane pretty quick after arrival. If you feel nervous not to worry you will have an awesome instructor help you through it. Mine was CJ and he made for an awesome time. The only downside is the price of photos and video which they charge at a premium. Despite this I can’t recommend enough

I had always said that I would never go skydiving... yet when my wedding party decided that they would all take the plunge, I knew that I would always regret it if I didn’t join them. I was terrified and there is a long lead up from arrival at the location to actually leaving the plane (a good half a day, from pick up in Sydney city at 6am to return to Central Station around lunchtime). But this provider was excellent, offering a friendly and competent service. And my instructor in particular (Russ, an absolute legend, with my than 7,000 jumps under his belt) made me feel completely at ease. He made me feel very safe, and really took care of a nervous first-timer. I would absolutely recommend this company and encourage those daunted by the thought of it to give it a go (best to go with a group of around 10, so you can all go together in the one plane). It was something I will never forget.

Arrival: Pick up at 8 AM from “Wake Up Sydney!” is more like 8:40 AM. Journey to Wollongong: 90 minutes comfortable bus journey to the destination. Getting Signed Up: This could take a lot of time. Waited in queue for 45-60-90 minutes. And more wait, while you wait for the earlier groups to be 1. de-briefed 2. transported to airport 3. jump touch down. Add 30 minutes per group ahead of you. Skydive: 60 seconds of free fall didn’t feel like 60 seconds. These could be the fastest 60 seconds of your life. Paraglide/Balloon Assisted: Once is parachute opens up, it is just the matter of 5 minutes before you touch down. And more wait, while you wait for the entire bus group to finish. Photos: Absolutely ridiculous pictures!! 1 out of 5. See for yourself. Edited Video: Terrible!! 1 out of 5. Quality: 3 out 5. Cost: Overpriced. $199 would be more than enough.

I had my first jump and i wasn’t even nervous, because i saw high quality in their duty. Those guys are professionals! Highly recommend!

Sabrina T October 2019

My brother and I absolutely LOVED our experience sky diving. Both our instructors Mark & Ken were amazing and made us feel soo comfortable. We would 100% do it again. Thanks guys! :)

PKBtime October 2019

Experience Team and lifetime experience. Adventurous dive done on my birthday and the experience lasts forever in my heart.

jackandkimstravels October 2019

Loved my skydive, a truly unforgettable experience. Got picked up in Sydney so it is a long day but worth it for the 7 minutes of adrenaline. Last on the plane is first to jump and trust me, that’s the best way to do it, although it might not seem so at the time!

I had booked a Tandem skydive at Wollongong for 20th august 2019. Unfortunately, I got a message from the team in the morning that Wollongong was windy on that day and all our dives had been transferred to NewCastle. The best part was the communication that they made about the transfer which did not cause any confusion, The same pickup spot was persisted and the same bus to take us to Newcastle instead of Wollongong. At Newcastle, my instructor was Luke who was from Wollongong but was transferred here as well. He was calm and such a cool person who made me feel very comfortable and stressfree. They gave us jumpers as it was a little cold. The dive was amazing and the view at Newcastle was serene. We opted for the picture and videos. The final cut of the video was fun to watch :) Just one disappointment was that, Newcastle skydive has a beach landing as well for some extra $50 which we were unaware of. There is no info displayed about this as well at the location. If the team would have told us before, would have opted for that. Anyway, that gives us another reason to visit :)

Rhii M June 2019

Me and my partner did it in Wollongong. We had the best instructors! And the view was to stunning. Highly recommended

risa_md June 2019

I had the best time of my life! My tandem master was John and he's very very experienced with 9000+ jumps. I assure you will be safe with him and also, skydive australia has an outstanding safety record. I recommend everyone to jump with them! I'd also recommend to go to Wollongong with the bus they provide in Sydney, and then go back to Sydney with the train... so you don't have to rush and have some time to walk around and have lunch in Wollongong. You can walk in Wollongong and you can see free shuttle bus (look out for the bus stops) that will take you to the Wollongong train station. Thank you skydive australia!

KJ2604 May 2019

We had always wanted to factor in a sky dive into our trip in Australia and I’m so glad we did! It was amazing! We opted to get the free transfer from Sydney and it was really easy from the start, the bus was really easy to spot and the staff were great getting us checked in into the bus. The bus also had air conditioning and usb charging points which was an added bonus. When we arrived at the drop site we were advised that there was going to be a bit of a delay due to an issue with the normal plane, however this didn’t bother us as it was sunny and we chose to sit on the grass and wait. When we were called to check in, the staff were again really helpful, explaining the different types of footage you could get. After this we were given a group number and told to listen out for our number before going to get kitted out. When we were all harnessed up, we were given a brief run down of the safety of the jump and then got to meet our instructors. Both myself and my friend had really great instructors, Riss and Phil. They were both really chatty and made us feel completely at ease right up until the moment we were falling out of the plane. Would 100% recommend spending the money and adding this into your trip. It’s such an amazing experience!!!

FirdaInayah_H May 2019

First time doing sky diving, coach name Dan, he was perfectly made me felt so comfortable jumped and enjoying the sky. He asked me also controlling the parachute for 5mins. Overall great experienced, despite of I felt sorry not wearing long shirt, very cold up there

murphymeg23 March 2019

This is my second time jumping with Skydive Australia and truly had the BEST jump and experience with Cormac at the Wollongong location. He was kind, explained every single detail of what to do and expect so I felt comfortable, safe, while always being super excited for my jump. I really can’t say it enough, he MADE my experience one to remember for a lifetime. I jumped in Cairns a few years ago but this jump was just so much better because of Cormac. Thanks a ton for a great day, amazing views, and really memorable experience.

fayejacinto January 2019

Most thriling activity I have ever experienced! For all the adventerous and thrill seekers, this activity is for you. Transfer, check-in, and dive went smoothly. The free fall is nothing like you have ever experienced and the view was spectacular. Shout to my partner Russ and Josh for making my experience truly memorable! Kudos to the whole team!
