It takes a special kind of person to jump out of a plane at 10,000 ft. Find out if you've got what it takes on an exciting introduction to the mind-blowing sport of skydiving as you take the most exhilarating leap of your life over the beautiful Rainbow Beach in Brisbane.
The day will start with a safety briefing to ensure that you are up to speed on the simple processes involved. You will then meet your instructor and board your plane then ascend high into the crisp Queensland air. Willing up all the courage in the world you will finally leap into the sky and experience what is commonly believed to be the most thrilling pursuit known.
You will freefall for thirty seconds which is the closest feeling a human can get to flying, followed by floating back to earth witnessing the most breathtaking views you will ever experience. Relax as your jumpmaster guides you through a gentle descent under parachute, leaving you free to drink in the panoramic vistas and savour every last moment. Complete your adventure by touching down right on the beach.
From the plane and under parachute, you will take in views of Fraser Island, Carlo Sandblow, Double Island Point and the coloured sands that Rainbow Beach is famous for. There really is no better way to experience this breathtakingly beautiful coastal region.
