Just another relaxing day on Dunk Island

Not your average drop zone

We are a not-for-profit skydiving club based in Far North Queensland, entirely operated by dedicated volunteers. The last few years has seen a dramatic change for the club going from a humble fun jumping drop zone to a comprehensive training operation offering student courses and hosting a diverse range of events and camps.
We truly are a thriving club with an amazing crew.

What sets us apart?

The reason we can offer such an amazing experience is due to the hard work of all the volunteers.

Our dropzone facilities

Far North Queensland is a tropical paradise, boasting the world’s oldest rainforest, the Daintree, and the majestic Great Barrier Reef. This region offers an array of experiences, from the thrill of white-water rafting to the tranquillity of hot air ballooning over the Atherton Tablelands. You can immerse yourselves in Indigenous culture, explore the vibrant marine life, or relax on the pristine beaches. With its rich biodiversity and welcoming communities, Far North Queensland is a must-visit destination for you and your family, especially if you love nature. Allow an extra week or two off dropzone to discover the magic of the tropics and create memories to last a lifetime.  It's not just about the skydiving.

Are you dog friendly?
Yes, your puppies are welcome at the dropzone. They must be well behaved and always supervised when free. During operations, while the aircraft is running, they must be on a lead or restrained. We have a public road between the club house and campsite. This is a real danger when owners are distracted.
