If you’re planning a tandem skydive, the ultimate way to upgrade your skydive adventure is to skip the 1.5 hour commute and arrive by helicopter with a 35 minute scenic helicopter flight from Melbourne’s Essendon Airport and private landing at the Skydive Great Ocean Road drop zone in Barwon Heads.

The best location for skydiving outside Melbourne, skydiving the Great Ocean Road is a truly once-in-a-lifetime experience combining amazing views of Torquay, Bells Beach and the Great Ocean Road with the ultimate adrenaline rush of an accelerated free-fall for 60 heart-pounding seconds which are unlike anything you’ve ever experienced.

Rated one of the best outdoor activities in Melbourne, your 15,000ft tandem skydive adventure begins with a skydiving safety briefing from your highly-qualified and experienced tandem instructor.¬†After being securely strapped to your tandem instructor, you‚Äôll enjoy a short flight up to flight altitude¬†when the plane doors will open and the pilot will give your tandem instructor a ‚Äúgreen light‚ÄĚ for your tandem skydive.¬†

Stepping outside the plane your adrenaline will kick in and, before you know it, you’ll be experiencing the extremely rare feeling of accelerated free-fall at 220km/h on your way back to earth. As your parachute deploys and you ease back to gentle flight,  spectacular views of Torquay Beach, Bells Beach and the Great Ocean Road will come into view as you spend your final few minutes in the air floating back to your drop zone.
