Experience the best views of Byron Bay from the air with an awesome hang gliding experience over cape Byron! The sport of hang gliding is as exciting as it is fun and we are able to share a tandem hang gliding flight in Byron Bay with you to enjoy the excellent soaring conditions found around Lennox Headland Reserve and the Byron Bay National Park. Feel the thrill of soaring gracefully through the sky as you get truly epic views of the coastline including the iconic Cape Byron Lighthouse and much more.

The flight is with your instructor and is an introductory tandem flight which lasts for 30 minutes. You are joined up as a HGFA member which gives you trainee membership an allows you to enjoy a tandem flight with third party liability insurance for a further 4 months if you wish to take more flights or lessons. Before launching with your instructor, you will be given a briefing and explanation on and about hang gliding, it's as easy as that. Whilst soaring in your hang glider, keep an eye out for the popular Byron Bay dolphins, turtles or white breasted sea eagles, you may even see a humpback whale or two if the season is right.

Flights operate daily if the weather permits from Tallow Ridge at Cape Byron Headland. Passengers are asked to wear light, comfortable clothing and footwear and are allowed to bring small cameras with hand straps on the flight.

Elizabeth Maplestone 1 year ago Had the best experience hang gliding with Brian! I took my boyfriend as a birthday surprise and he was not disappointed. We were both first timers myself much more hestiant but both felt completely comfortable and relaxed throughout the flight. Such a beautiful way to see the amazing coast around cape byron, we even saw some whales! Will definitely be recommending to family and friends.

Really amazing experience
Richard 3 years ago

Really amazing experience! You have to contact the instructor to confirm and then on the morning of the activity they give you an idea of what time you'll be going, the only problem is that obviously the weather isn't easily predictable so the time an sometimes day isn't predictable. He was a really good instructor and made the process easy. The actual experience was incredible, amazing views and feeling being above everything, saw a turtle and some sting rays from above as well. You get about 30 minutes in the air and it's all filmed (for a bit extra) but you can also bring a go pro too which is a bonus. I would definitely recommend the activity to anyone! Worth the money!

Amazing
Belinda 3 years ago

Amazing. This experience was fantastic. Wonderful instructors who didn't just take you for a hang glide but taught you the basics and allowed you to take control of your experience, under their watchful eye. The scenery was breathtaking. I watched a pod of 40 odd dolphins playing in the waves and kangaroos grazing on the hilltop. I here that whale migration season is a great time to go....think I will be back in September!

A great experience although I learnt just how reliant you are on the weather to be just right to get the full experience

My review
Eri 4 years ago

本当に楽しいです!離陸の瞬間の、体がぐんぐん上がっていく感覚は感動ものです。そのあとは目の前にどこまでも広がる海や、バイロンベイの有名な灯台など、最高の景色が楽しめます。上空での写真撮影もさせてもらえて、とてもいい記念になりました。 星ひとつ減らしたのは、途中で船酔いみたいになってしまって、早めの着地をお願いしたからです…酔いやすい方は、あらかじめ酔い止め薬を飲んでおくことをお勧めします!

Fantastic
Aaron V 5 years ago

Fantastic, pilot was great, everything went really well from beginning to end. Totally magical. Would love to now take a course and get my own licence.

It is recommended to glide bare feet as it is easier to tuck your feet into the harness once you are in the air, be sure to book your glide in advance as this is a very popular attraction in the Byron Bay region.
