Activity available when visiting: Byron Bay, Gold Coast
Tandem Hang Gliding is available in two picture perfect areas. The Scenic Rim of South-East Queensland and Byron Bay in New South Wales. Both spots offer the unique experience and completely different but equally jaw dropping views. Strapped to a professional flight instructor you will be in safe hands as you get this experience of a lifetime.
Depending on the weather and wind the take off point will either be in Byron Bay or nearby beach town Lennox heads. Your expert Flight Instructor, Peter (once ranked 20th in the world), will take you on a soaring flight over the Pacific Ocean and Australia’s stunningly beautiful beaches. If you’re flying in Byron you will soar above the iconic Cape Byron, with the only opportunity to see the Cape Byron Lighthouse from above. These views are second to none, and if you’re lucky you will be able to see and photograph any whales, dolphins, turles and the occasional shark, as you silently fly above them. A final unique beach landing, you will struggle to find a better adrenaline activity than this!

The Scenic Rim is the name for a huge area in South-East Queensland surrounded by mountains. These mountains are actually the rim of a millennium past giant volcano. As a result the whole area is extremely fertile boasting huge lush forest and farmland. This creates a very scenic view and hence the name. The take-off for this flight will either be from Mount Tamborine or Beechmont depending on weather and wind. Giving you breathtaking views of this Gold Coast hinterland area.
