Gold Coast Skydive: Enjoy one of life's most memorable and adrenaline pumping experiences... tandem skydiving. And no better place to do it than over the beaches of the iconic Gold Coast, south of Brisbane Queensland. Our Gold Coast Skydive takes place from 12,000 feet above the beaches. You'll exit the plane and free fall for forty-five seconds, then gently glide for 5 minutes landing on the beach below. We know it sounds easy! It is. But you need to summon the courage to do it. Or better still, give someone a Gold Coast Skydive gift voucher and watch them do it.

On the day of your tandem skydive
