How to get here from Canberra
If you’re wanting to take a break from the view of the parliament house and enjoy some beachside scenery, we’re here to help you find it!
Whether you’re thinking about starting your skydiving journey through our AFF course, using that spontaneous birthday gift voucher given to you by your girlfriend or just coming by to spend some time with us and watch people glide their canopies above the coast to land on the beach, I assume you’ve clicked on this link because you have no idea how to get here!
Where are we?
Moruya Airport, NSW, 2537 Australia.
Skydive Oz is located right on the beautiful south coast of NSW Australia near an enchanting little town called Moruya. If you know where Batemans Bay is, keep heading south for about 20 minutes to the airport, you’ll see us – just look for colourful parachutes in the sky. However, if you’re up to date with technology and have a reliable GPS, just type in ‘Moruya Airport NSW’ and it should bring you straight here. If you’re already a skydiver you’ve probably heard people refer to us as ‘the moo’.
Coming from overseas?
We can’t wait to meet you! Hopefully your flight to Canberra won’t be a long one but if it is I promise the breathtaking view of our coastline under canopy is worth every bit of travel. Canberra is fairly close to us, so a bus or car trip will get you here. That means, once you land in Canberra seated and buckled in the plane, try to contain your excitement knowing that the next flight you’re on, you will be jumping out a plane with us!
If you’re driving, you can step into the 21st century and use the details listed above to make your way here (GPS). Otherwise there is are a couple of brilliant transportation services called:
