All of the Melbourne Skydives are based out of Euroa – about a 110 minute drive north of the Melbourne City Centre. There are is also a complimentary bus service running from Montmorency every Friday and returning Sunday (request in additional information in booking process). Euroa has some awesome countryside views which you’ll get to experience over a scenic flight on the climb up to your specified elevation. And then on the dive back down! For all of the Melbourne Skydives, you will meet at Euroa Airstrip to get suited into your skydiving attire and given the run-down for the upcoming dive. After you’ve been briefed and you’re ready to go, you’ll aboard a fixed wing aircraft and taken up to the clouds, where your skydive adventure begins!
The 10,000 foot tandem skydive is the perfect jump for divers on a budget. At just $265, you’ll snag a great 15 minute scenic flight over Melbourne up to 10,000 feet before opening up for a 40 second free-fall and 6 minute glide back down to ground. This is also the ideal option if you’re maybe a little nervous about jumping out of a plane and prefer the less option than the ‘whopper’ jump!
Onto the main event… This one is a beauty! Taken up to 14,000 feet you’ll enjoy a wonderful 20 minute joy flight climbing to the serious elevation. It doesn’t take long before you are cruising above the clouds and getting ready to bite the bullet. During a 1 minute free-fall, you’ll penetrate through the clouds to a landscape of beauty lying several thousand feet below. As you zoom closer to the ground, the parachute comes out and you’ll have the opportunity to glide back down to ground over 6-8 minutes for a safe landing. This is highly recommended for anyone looking for an intense skydive.
