The best skydiving experiences
Defying gravity has its challenges and rewards. If the prospect of leaping from an airborne plane, free as a bird, cushioned by the clear blue sky, excites you, RedBalloon has the answer. We offer a range of Australian skydiving activities, Australia wide from Victoria and NSW, to Western Australia and anywhere in between, these are designed to be experienced in maximum safety and with breathtaking exhilaration levels. Whether it’s tandem skydiving over the beach, or you'd prefer to skydive solo or even indoors, at night or day, the choice and location is yours. At RedBalloon, skydiving simulators will have Australia learning to skydive in no time. Some of customer’s favourite and most picturesque locations include Byron Bay, Canberra, Broome and Uluru to name a few.
With the help of highly trained technicians, you will be provided with the safety, comfort and know-how of how to skydive like a pro, while overcoming any adrenaline-charged fear factor. Free-falling from 15,000-feet above sea level is our business. We’re a Sydney-based company and pioneer in experiential gifting. We offer Australia-wide skydiving deals that are not only within your price range, but also the impetus and inspiration for you to soar like never before. Wherever you are located, cheap skydiving is guaranteed at RedBalloon, and you will be richly rewarded for the experience.
Accelerated free fall is the fastest way to experience tandem free fall, from 10,000 to 15,000 feet in the air down onto a desginated drop zone. You’ll be safely and effortlessly covered by one or sometimes two trained instructors, who are dedicated solely to you.
This is a skydiving simulator experience that will leave you craving to launch yourself into the open skies. Indoor skydiving involves gearing up in a jumpsuit, goggles and helmet and flying high in an invigorating wind tunnel chamber, which is powered by a constant stream of generated air. Dedicated centres throughout Australia allow for a fun, safe, exhilarating introduction to skydiving. These can be performed day or night and are not weather dependent. With no plane required, you’ll be able to take off whenever the mood takes you.
The range of skydiving experiences at RedBalloon is cheaper than you might imagine. We offer reduced rates on most of our skydiving packages, particularly midweek or off season. Prices vary, but they range from about $69 for two midweek, introductory indoor skydiving sessions to $329 for a weekend 15,000-feet solo skydive over the beach. And with Christmas fast approaching, a skydiving experience voucher makes an unforgettable gift idea.
Two’s company when it comes to tandem skydiving. You’ll be safe and sound as you’re connected by harness to a trained instructor who will guide you through the entire exhilarating jump: from exit, free fall, piloting the canopy and landing. It’s an appealing and popular style of jump for all adrenaline junkies at RedBalloon.
Much more than an adrenaline rush, skydiving has many health benefits including stress relief, facing and overcoming personal fears, upper body strength, building confidence and mental and physical rejuvenation. RedBalloon offers the amazing experience of adrenaline skydiving at its exhilarating best.

Which skydive company should I use?
At RedBalloon, we provide potential high fliers with a range of skydiving experiences to choose from set amid a stunning natural backdrop. You’ll be free-falling like a bird and caressing the clouds as you dominate gravity from on high. For indoor and simulator skydiving, night skydiving, adrenaline skydiving and all your thrill-seeking skydiving desires practically anywhere in Australia, with highly trained instructors, the only way is up at RedBalloon.
What should I know before going skydiving?
Expect the unexpected. Apart from an initial overwhelming bodily and psychological fear, free-falling at 200 kilometres per hour for 45 to 60 seconds is guaranteed to induce goosebumps, perspiration, heightened blood pressure, sharpened senses, or all of the above. It’s an adrenaline rush like never before and your fitness levels and medical wellbeing should be in tiptop shape to withstand these sensory pressures.
What to wear: Lightweight, comfortable clothing that allows for ease of moveability is always recommended, and light, firm-fitting footwear, such as a good runner, will have you looking and feeling the part. Inclement or wild weather precludes skydiving activity, so you’ll need clear skies and fine, temperate conditions to maximise this thrill-seeking experience of a lifetime. Call and check on the day if clouds are gathering and rain is forecast.
When you’re in the air, just in case you forget, remember to breathe. This may sound like an obvious statement, but upon jumping out of the plane, people sometimes forget to exhale as they are so overwhelmed by the wild rush. Importantly, remember to live in the moment. Tandem skydiving is incredibly safe and instructors comply with the highest safety standards. Relax, smile and enjoy the ride. Reassuring, skilled and friendly instructors are trained to help make the experience so memorable that you’ll want to do it all over again.
“The world is made up of two groups of people; those who have been skydiving and those who have not. I thought I would always be the latter. However, my team at work had other ideas, they sent me on the experience and it was better than I could have imagined” – Naomi Simson, May 2019.
