Nothing compares to the incredible view from the heights you reach, with only the sound of the breeze itself. This fantastic experience even adds a delicious champagne breakfast, a tradition since the early days of ballooning. This takes awesomeness to new heights.
Skydiving Over Torquay
Speaking of heights, is there anything more insane than jumping out of a perfect aircraft? There is if you do it from 15,000 feet above one of the most beautiful coastlines on the planet. And all while screaming back to earth with a freefall speed in excess of 200kmh. This is the adrenaline kick you’ve been dreaming of.
With this tandem jump, you will experience a rush like no other, so be prepared for a once-in-a-lifetime event. Nothing compares to your first jump and when taking it over the world-renowned Torquay Beach, you have the best of both worlds. With a 60-second freefall to thrill you and a two-minute glide above this spectacular beach, it really is a match made in heaven.
Shark Diving at Melbourne Aquarium
While we’re on the subject of the ocean, do you know what lies beneath the surface of that big blue body of water? Sharks, lots of them. But you don’t need to drop into the ocean to get up close and personal. For that, we take you somewhere just as thrilling, although maybe a lot safer.
Shark Diving at the Melbourne Aquarium is the perfect way to get up close and personal with these apex predators. Once in the tank, relax and discover these mysterious creatures from a whole new level.
Flyboarding at Frankston
If staying above the surface is more to your liking, there’s always the unique experience of flyboarding.
Relatively new to most thrill seekers, once you master the balance side of things, enjoy the thrill of powering your way to new heights, with nothing more than the power of the water itself.
