Attraction details
Owner description: Tandem skydive over the Yarra Valley from up to 14,000ft and experience an insane 60 seconds of life-changing freefall! Then, float under canopy for 5-7 minutes over the lush Yarra Ranges and Yarra Valley vineyards and marvel at the incredible views all the way to the city skyline of Melbourne. A tandem skydive with the dedicated and experienced Skydive Australia crew will be as memorable as it is exhilarating!

It was my first jump. Jumping out of a plane at 14,000ft was so amazing and exited. Staff are friendly and great. Thanks to my instructor Jeremy , with his assistance I completed my skydiving safe and enjoyable at the beautiful place Yarra Valley. Everything happened very quickly, hope can do it again.. Thanks Melbourne Skydive Centre !!!

Did my 1st skydiving here, and it was by far the bravest thing ive done. Massive thanks to Jeremy for being such an awesome instructor! He paid attention to nitty gritty details and took great effort to document the entire process. Kudos to him and the team at Barwon Heads Melbourne Skydive Centre! Would definitely be back again!:)

Although this was something organised as a fundraiser through JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation) the experience of skydiving is something I'll do over & over again!

It's dificult to describe with words otyher than to say YOU MUST TRY THIS FOR YOURSELF!!

Jez & the gang @ Yarra Valley were fantastic! Their love & passion for the dive has completely rubbed off on me & the people I jumped with on the day, & I'm recruiting everyone one I can to experience the same excitement & thrill!

Thank you Jez & Melbourne Skydive

This was by far the best day of my life. Jumping 14,000ft out of a Plane was never a thought that had crossed my mind, but just woke up one morning and knew it was something I wanted to do and am now thrilled I have done done it. A thanks to the team at Barwon Heads and a very special thanks to Jeremy, my instructor. You made the experience much more enjoyable and kept me very relaxed and excited. I had every confidence in you and never had a single doubt that I wasn't safe. The upmost care And safety was taken, very trustworthy and knowledgeable. Thanks for the fantastic DVD and photos. I will now be able to enjoy the views on the way down for years to come. I will Definately be back and would love to come and do the course and get a job working with you guys. Very highly recommended. Thanks Melbourne Skydive Centre.
