Where to skydive?

Cairns – See the Great Barrier Reef from above

Whilst your in Cairns it’s pretty likely that you’ll be heading out on a snorkelling or scuba trip of the great barrier reef! You’ve seen it underwater… now how about seeing it from the sky! This absolutely massive beauty can even be seen from space and you can see it from a birds eye view by doing a skydive up here. Not only will you see the reef, you’ll also be able to see the Daintree Rainforest from the sky!

Mission Beach – Land on the beach!

The home of the beach skydiving landing, Mission beach offers epic views and a landing like no other. If you didn’t know already, all the other skydive locations, you’ll be landing in the airfield after your jump. Not in Mission Beach though! You’ll be landing right on the sand and coming very close to the sea! It’s an epic experience and one of our faves because of its unique landing.

Byron Bay – Give us a wave

Byron Bay is an absolute beauty from the ground but even better from 15,000ft! You’ll see how vast the hinterland around Byron is and also see all of the beautiful crystal clear water and rolling beaches. This doubles up as a scenic flight as you’ll see all of the cape {where the lighthouse is!} as well as the surrounding area. If you do it between July and October you might even see the whales on their migration!

Sydney – Does it get anymore iconic??

If you are starting your east coast roadie in Sydney then what better than to dive right into the deep end and do a skydive checking out this world famous city and the surrounds?! If you are ending your trip here then what better way to round up your trip of a lifetime! Basically, jumping in Sydney is an epic option and you’ll get to take in those good views yewwwwwwww.

Aussie offers so many adrenalin experiences and skydiving is absolutely up there, the RatPack crew love a skydive.. So much so that some of our crew have jumped up to 3 times!!

We’ve dropped some of our top tips below when it comes to your skydive:

  • Wear trainers and gym gear (aka not loose clothing!)
  • You can’t take your own go pro, if you want to get shots of your experience, buy the camera and video package at the jump zone
  • Allow at least half a day for the whole experience!
  • Book with us and we can save you $$$ on the direct rate yewwww!

Anna was so helpful and kind, she helped me book a van for my friend and I. She was on top of all my questions and was so lovely to work with 😁

Just booked a van for NZ for 2 weeks. Ben made the booking so easy and hassle free, will definitely be recommending RatPack in the future

Excellent service, they reached out within 24hrs with some quotes they found, and were extremely good at finding the van to fit our preferences. Shout out to George specifically for being a miracle worked and finding us a van so late minute for our trip. I would 100% reach out to them again and recommend RatPack Travel to anyone looking to travel via van

Ryan from RatPack Travel was so helpful with researching and organising the best option for my friend and I with finding the perfect campervan for our trip. The communication and customer service was brilliant. A super friendly and helpful company - would definitely recommend.

Ratpack are such a great company we couldn't recommend them enough. Organised a call with George for help deciding what option would be best for us and he was absolutely brilliant. Gave us loads of information to help us find the best option on our budget and never once made us feel pressured to go in any certain direction. George and the team made the whole process so much easier, thanks so much!

Ryan was a great help. It was so easy talking to him and made my booking so easy. Great work Ryan

Bijzonder goed geholpen en heeft de tijd genomen om tot een rental campervan te komen. Dit alles met de vriendelijke Ryan ! Waarvoor dank

George of RatPack has been amazing! So so responsive and helpful in finding really good campers for great deals! We’ve booked camper vans for Australia and New Zealand through RatPack and the process couldn’t have been easier!

Fantastic experience. I was pretty overwhelmed with trying to sort things myself, and Anna just cleared the path for me. She was so patient and helpful, now we are all sorted and booked 24 hours later.

Amazing company that takes all the hassle out of booking a camper-van for your travels in Australia and NZ. Within 2 hours of speaking to Ben we’d found and booked the best option for us, for a cheaper price than we’d ever expected! If you’re looking to book a camper-van for NZ or Australia, RatPack should be the first people you speak to!

My Friend and I have just booked our van for our New Zealand trip in September. Ryan was amazing and could have not been more helpful. Ryan has made the process straight forward and extremely stress free. If it wasn’t for him we wouldn’t be taking a dream trip. Thankyou again

Ryan provided a speedy service and quotes and was at the other end of the phone to answer any questions I had. Would recommend.
