If you’ve been following this blog for a while now, I wouldn’t blame you for thinking I have an issue with scenic flights. From the Swiss Alps, to the Blue Mountains, and now Australia’s iconic Gold Coast, I’ve never made it through a whole plane ride. On reaching 12,000 feet I’ve always opted for the quickest route back down to the ground. Free falling at 200 kph after having jumped mid flight. Where is the best Skydiving in Australia?
But I truly can’t stop. The air rushes into your face and your heart starts racing. As the adrenalin rush kicks in, you feel like you’re floating on a cushion of air. The silence is amazing, the view is sensational, and as the initial shock of the free fall quickly wears off your fear disappears, replaced with an intense and exhilarating thrill of soaring through the air.
I’m addicted to the jump. I crave the adrenaline at this point. Skydiving is an electrifying experience far more thrilling and intense than any sort of drug. Though I had never before jumped over the coast and landed on the beach.
Skydive Onto The Beach
Gold Coast Skydive
Gold Coast Skydive is the only skydive centre on the Gold Coast. We landed on the beautiful and iconic sandy Kirra beach. This is one of the few remaining family owned businesses within the skydiving industry and their focus on fun, customer service and above all else, safety, is what sets them above the rest.
We took off from Gold Coast International airport amongst the passenger jets, which offers it’s own unique experience and that’s before we had left the ground. We then took in the breathtaking scenery on the flight to height. The view of the Gold Coast’s beaches and Surfers Paradise skyline are stunning beyond comparison. Skydive over the beach
We were strapped to a beautiful stranger, and once the aircraft reached the drop point we leaped from the plane. It was the adrenaline filled ride of a lifetime, rushing through the air in free-fall towards paradise.
As the parachute opened it became peaceful and quiet as we floated through the cloud cover to the sandy beaches of Kirra. This was yet another chance to take in the beautiful views of the Gold Coasts never ending beaches whilst reveling in the feeling of having left your comfort zone behind and living life to the fullest.
