Skydive Australia takes you on a scenic plane ride over the coast before you make the crucial jump, from 15,000 feet! While secured to your tandem skydive instructor, expect to freefall at speeds of up to 220 kilometres (137 miles) per hour before the chute is pulled and you soar serenely down to earth, taking in the dramatic views over Wollongong before landing on North Beach. It’s one of the most spectacular skydives in Australia, if you ask us!

Nicknamed ‘the coathanger’, the Sydney Harbour Bridge is a great engineering feat, originally opened in 1932. Visitors are free to walk or cycle across this vast structure that spans Sydney Harbour. Better yet, book one of the many BridgeClimb expeditions which will take you high into the superstructure and grant you with some unforgettable views of Sydney. No special climbing skills are required. We highly recommend the dawn and the twilight climb.
