High Speed Heaven
Choose your method of exploring the skies! Glide with the eagles,
soaring over aqua waters through infinite blue sky in Australia's perfect
hang-gliding conditions. More than 100 gliding clubs provide training
courses and joy flights - there's one to suit you!
Or zoom in a helicopter over the soaring sails of Sydney's Opera House,
whisk above golden sandy beaches and touch down on an offshore pontoon.
Helicopters run luxury tropical adventure safaris as well as joyrides.
For the maximum adrenaline-rush, Sydney's latest aviation adventure
combines the thrills of high speed jet-fighter aerobatics and air combat
manoeuvres with spectacular views of the city and the majestic Blue
Mountains. Your jet fighter accelerates rapidly, hitting 600 kilometres an
hour on a tailored, military-style mission
Balloning Up-Up and Away :
In a moment, you're soaring up beyond the trees and over an otherwise
sleeping land - whether you choose sunrise, daytime or sunset, a flight in a
hot-air balloon will give you a bird's eye view of some of Australia's
prettiest countryside. You can waft over the Hunter or Barossa wine valleys,
champagne in hand; or float over Melbourne or Canberra. A range of flights
are available in most states.
Champagne Balloon Flights flies over the the tablelands of tropical north
Queensland, where the rainforest meets the outback.
Take the plunge and dive - a 40 second freefall, heart pumping and chute
billowing. Parachuting centres and schools offer weekend or week-long
skydiving trips close to Australian towns and cities.
Gliding Touching the feet of Sky
With more than 100 gliding clubs, training courses and joy flights abound.
