Tour description provided by Viator

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.
Make your way to the drop zone in Stuart Park, located just one hour south of Sydney CBD. Alternatively, get picked up at North Wollongong railway station or from selected locations around Sydney including Coogee Beach, Bondi Beach, Kings Cross or the Wake Up! Sydney Hostel.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. You'll be close to cafes, restaurants, cycling and walking paths, swimming pools, picnic and BBQ facilities, Wollongong Harbour and more if you want to hang out. Alternatively, take provided transportation back to the North Wollongong railway station or Sydney.Each sky diver receives a commemorative skydive certificate. You can also buy video and photo packages.
