Safety - Skydive Melbourne tickets
  • Trained professionals: You will be jumping with experienced and certified professionals who will ensure the safest jump for you. 
  • Gear: The gear passes multiple checks before it’s put on you, ensuring it is in perfect condition when you jump.
  • Emergency procedures: In the rare occurrence that the parachute doesn’t open, your instructor will release that canopy and release the reserve parachute. 
  • Insurance: Personal accident insurance of up to $50,000 is included in the cost of your skydive.
What to wear - Skydive Melbourne tickets
  • Recommended clothing: Wear loose, casual clothing, like activewear, jeans or tracksuit pants.
  • Footwear: Shoes must be fully enclosed. Preferably wear training or running shoes. 
  • Outerwear: In the colder months, bring a jumper, jacket or fleece, as the dropzone will not be providing any extra clothes.
  • Loose items: Remove any rings, earrings, necklaces, dentures or false teeth before your dive – these loose items will drop while you dive!
  • Eyewear: Glasses and contact lenses are completely fine to wear – inform your instructor before you dive if you’re wearing contact lenses, so they can provide goggles to protect them.
What to carry - Skydive Melbourne tickets

Carry:

  • Relevant medication like that for motion sickness
  • Change of clothes
  • Sunscreen
  • Sunglasses

Don’t carry:

  • Mobile phones, headphones, or any loose electronics
  • Any heavy belongings, like a bag, backpack, or purse.
  • Bubble/Chewing gum
  • Any sharp objects - knives, scissors, etc
What to eat - Skydive Melbourne tickets
  • Do not consume any alcoholic beverages or recreational drugs up to 12 hours before your jump. This is a requirement of the Australian Parachute Federation, and the venue may ask to conduct a breath analysis test if they suspect you are under the influence. 
  • Eat a balanced, light meal before your jump. Avoid fast food, extremely oily or greasy food and spicy dishes. Try to eat fruits, vegetables and any other light snacks. 
  • Avoid sugary drinks and caffeinated beverages, as they may cause palpitations or heightened anxiety before your jump. 
  • Hydrate just before your jump, but don’t overdo it. Drink just enough water (around 1-2 glasses), and don’t dehydrate yourself out of fear.
Health/age requirements - Skydive Melbourne tickets
  • Surcharges may be applied if you’re over 94 kg or over, and the teams at the drop zones may additionally perform a check to see if skydiving is safe for you. 
  • Pregnant women are not allowed to skydive. 
  • A diver must be over the age of 16 in Australia to skydive, and divers under 18 must be accompanied by a guardian, who will be present during the dive. 
  • If you’ve been scuba diving up to 24 hours before your designated jump time, you will not be allowed to jump. The sudden change in altitude and pressure will alter the way your body usually reacts to these changes.
Weather - Skydive Melbourne tickets

As skydiving is highly dependent on having clear skies – look at the forecast before you book your tickets. However, don't worry! Melbourne usually sees clear skies for a good chunk of the year, and tickets rarely get rescheduled.

  • Note: If the weather is unfavourable on the day of your jump, the venue may reschedule your jump. If you can’t make it to the rescheduled day and time due to scheduling conflicts, your money will be refunded.

Dressing for the weather: Make sure to dress comfortably and carry a jacket, regardless of the season. Wear SPF 30 and above, even if the forecast is cloudy, and make sure to take any motion-sickness medicine before your jump.

Tips for skydiving in Melbourne

  • Safety instructions: Make sure to pay incredibly close attention to the team’s instructions. Treat their words as the ultimate thing you need to know before jumping, as they have years of professional experience. 
  • Capture your experience: We’d recommend going for the Handycam photo and video option. The camera will capture your expressions and joy in real time, and will serve as the only souvenir you need from this experience! 
  • Not feeling well? If you don't feel well on the day of your jump, communicate this to the instructors. They might recommend rescheduling for when you're feeling your best.
  • Dealing with anxiety: Remember that it is normal to feel anxious before skydiving, especially if it's your first time. If you're feeling anxious before, try levelling your breathing and practising any techniques that help. It would also help to talk to your instructor and keep an open channel of communication.
  • Communicate freely: Don't hesitate to ask your instructor questions, no matter how small they may seem. It's important to feel completely comfortable and understand everything that's going to happen.

Frequently asked questions about skydiving in Melbourne

Is skydiving in Melbourne safe?

Skydiving in Melbourne prioritizes safety with regulations, qualified instructors, and well-maintained equipment. Note that according to Gitnux, the odds of experiencing a fatality in a tandem skydive in Australia are about 1 in 500,000.

How old do you have to be to jump?

The minimum age requirement to skydive in Australia is 16 years. If you’re under the age of 18 years, you’ll have to get a guardian or a parent’s written statement allowing you to skydive. They’ll also have to accompany you to the dropzone on the day of your jump.

How long will you be in the air?

Though everything from the registration process to the flight will take about 2-3 hours in total, once you’ve jumped you’ll only be in the air for about 5-7 minutes! Your instructor will release the parachute once your freefall is done, which is about 60 seconds into your jump, after which you can enjoy your descent towards the ground.

Are photos and videos included in the tandem skydiving experiences?

You can choose the handycam photo and video option while buying your general ticket for a small extra charge. We'd recommend getting this, as there'll be a professional skydiver recording your entire experience – you'll also get to take your memories home with you after your jump!

What is the difference between jumping from 8,000 ft versus 15,000 feet?

Jumping from 8,000 feet would have you freefalling for less than 30 seconds, whereas jumping from 15,000 feet would have you freefalling for at least 60 seconds before your instructor pulls the parachute!

What are the different skydive drop zones in Melbourne?

You can jump from 4 different locations in Melbourne: 12 Apostles, Great Ocean Road, St Kilda's Beach and Yarra Valley! Depending on the dropzone location you choose, you can expect stunning views of the Yarra Valley vineyards, Port Phillip Bay with the Melbourne skyline, or the beautiful Great Ocean Road coastline.

Is carrying a GoPro to your jump allowed?

No. GoPros are called snag-hazards in the skydiving community, meaning they have a huge risk of catching onto something or getting stuck somewhere nasty. Skydive Melbourne offers their own photo and video packages for this reason.

Can I change my Melbourne skydive booking?

While your ticket cannot be cancelled, you can reschedule your skydiving booking with at least 24 hours' notice. Only your Skydive 12 Apostles tickets can be cancelled up to 48 hours in advance for a full refund.

Can I breathe during the freefall while skydiving?

Absolutely! While the rush of freefall might take your breath away momentarily, a normal breathing pattern will resume naturally. Your instructor will guide you on proper breathing techniques during the jump.

What if I get sick while skydiving in Melbourne?

The instructors are trained to handle various situations, including if a jumper feels unwell during the jump. They will take all necessary steps to ensure your safety and a smooth landing. It's also important to listen to your body and communicate any concerns you might have beforehand.
