I've already done 3 skydives and all I can say is “DO IT”. The feeling you get when jumping out of a plane is absolutely unbelievable, the views you get amazing, and when you're back down on the ground, you just get the most amazing feeling of pride (and also a bit of appreciation that you're still alive!)
Seriously skydiving is an amazing thing to do and something you can't experience every day (unless somehow you manage to skydive every day of your life). To calm everyone down: it's not even that scary (and a bit of fear is just a part of skydiving!) I stood on a Bungy Platform and didn't jump because I was too scared but 3 days later I was sitting in a plane that I was jumping out of at a height of 14,000ft. It's just different!
Because of the big height you won't get the feeling of crashing onto the ground that you get when your bungying. It just feels like you're flying! Skydiving to me is a mix of an adrenaline kick and an amazing countryside viewing option. It's beautiful to see the world from the sky, believe me...
There are many places perfect for skydiving Australia, but how do you choose? Well I hope this will help you decide.
