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!

George from RatPack travel has been an absolute delight to deal with. My husband and I are going on our first adventure in a motorhome to Queenstown Nz in April. George made the booking process stress free, he also got us a very decent discount and he answered all the questions that I had. I'm beyond happy with the experience and would highly recommend this agency the next time you want to book a motorhome for your next adventure.

Super good costumer service, Joe helped me find a Van with a very short time for my trip, he was super attentive and assertive, showing me different options, so now we have a good Van with a good price.

Ratpack worked round the clock to sort us a motorhome at very short notice. Originally working with Chris to sort something and getting it over the line with Mikey, everyone we spoke to was very friendly and helpful for sorting it out and we look forward to our trip with comfort knowing that it's all sorted. Big shout-out to Mikey who got us a real deal!

Insanely efficient. Seems like it’s too good to be true. But it’s genuinely that easy. Joe was so fast at replying and provided me with all the information I needed to choose the camper van for my road trip. He also got me a great discount (a lot more than planned) which was something I was not going to be able to get if I went directly to the camper van company. Over all a great experience- recommend to anyone looking for campervan in NZ.
