This review ISN'T for MELBOURNE, it's for Sydney since the weather was bad two days in Melbourne and I couldn't jump there. But, instead had to jump in Sydney. Wow, what an event and fun time skydiving for the first time in my life doing a tandem jump with Andrew W form the Sydney branch, same company though! I show friends and family my video and pics and they totally cant believe I made the jump. Man it's nothing like coming out that door looking out from that high up and seeing the land, the cold air, the wind and you know it's for real and jump time-lol! Everyone at Skydive Australia in Sydney were great, very friendly, professional and a great experience that will live with me for life! I loved the video and pics I bought were incredible something I look at daily at some point. I've been wanting to skydive almost two years now and it happened and it was a blast! You would be amazed how many folks on Nov 24th were on the bus paying to jump out a plane, the bus was packed-lol! Thanks Skydive Australia and Andrew W!!!!
Great experience. Everyone must try. Make sure you call 1-2 day early to confirm on the pickup point and time if you prefer to be picked up. And if you planned to buy the video, the company will charge extra 1.5. Make sure the videocam is your good side of face. :p
Had an amazing time, instructors were experienced and friendly.
Do note that photos and videos will cost additional and I recommend getting it.
I went during winter and it was freezing cold. Go skydiving during the summer instead in the early morning.
