42a Marine Parade, St Kilda

Highly recommended

Likely to sell out

Nothing quite compares to jumping out of a plane at 15,000 feet.

That’s what the team at Sky Dive Australia will have you do. With locations all around Australia, their most central Melbourne location is St Kilda.

On a tandem dive, you’ll experience one minute of free fall, followed by a gentle eight-minute glide back to earth. The dive itself isn’t that scary, it’s the slow ascent in the plane that really gets the heart beating.
