Top 10 Things to do in Noosa - Skydiving in Noosa

5. Skydiving in Noosa

Location: 4 Kittyhawk Cl, Marcoola

Push your fears to the back of your mind and take the ultimate plunge with a scenic skydive in Noosa on the Sunshine Coast!

Having long been an essential travel bucket list item for many people, Skydive Noosa has been making people’s wishes come true for many years now. And the reward for those few brave souls is unbelievable views of the Queensland coastline that only a few lucky people get to experience.

Skydive Noosa offers two tandem skydives at 10, 000 ft and 15, 000 ft but if you are going to jump out of the plane then why not go all in and do it from the highest possible elevation in Australia?

The obvious difference between the two elevations is the amount of free fall time in the air. With a 15, 000 ft skydive, you are going to jump/fall from a bigger height and have more time in the sky to think about what it is that you are doing before the parachute kicks in after approximately 60 seconds.

If you are feeling squeamish about the free fall then perhaps the 10, 000ft skydive is the one for you.

Skydive Noosa offers two tandem skydives at 10, 000 ft and 15, 000 ft but if you are going to skydive, you may as well go all in and do it from the highest possible elevation with a longer free-fall to soak in the views.

Regardless of the elevation skydivers choose, everyone will get to experience the same indescribable surge of adrenaline as you plummet to earth at speeds of 22km an hour.

There are many places that you can skydive in Australia but one reason why you should consider Noosa is because of the safe beach landings and the beautiful views of the Queensland coastline from Noosa all the way to Caloundra as you make your way back down to earth.

If you are lucky and the weather conditions are on your side then tandem skydive instructors may also let you assist in the steering of the parachute for a really interactive skydive experience.

If nothing else, you get a very pretty, scenic flight high above the skies of Noosa before the doors fly open, the light turns green and your heart kicks it up a notch.

We highly recommend purchasing the photo and video packages of your incredible skydive because your 7-minute flight will go really quickly and you will want to relive it and have a laugh with your family and friends as proof that you really did do it.
