Skydive Newcastle and Free Fall over Lake Macquarie: Join Newcastle's only beach tandem skydive! Skydive Newcastle is an experience you’ll never forget. You and your friends will do your briefing, take off and land in the same place – our own private airfield just south of Newcastle. You'll see views up and down the coast, all the way to Lake Macquarie!
- 15,000 feet jump height
- Up to 70 sec of free fall
- Sensational coastal and lake views
Your Skydive Newcastle adventure begins with a safety briefing followed by a scenic plane ride to height. As the excitement builds, your expert instructor will prepare you for the countdown and together you will make the ultimate jump from up to 15,000ft above the city of Newcastle with sensational coastal views of Blacksmith Beach and stunning Lake Macquarie.
After you experience freefall reaching speeds of up to 220km/h for up to 70 seconds, your instructor will pull the chute and you will soar serenely like a bird for up to 5 minutes taking in the breathtaking views.
