Some people like to totally relax on a break away. Others like to get the blood pumping with moments of high excitement. Grand Pacific Drive takes you to all sorts of adventures from free falling from 14,000ft to on hopping a trike, piloting a Porsche or acting like Tom Cruise in Top Gun!

Skydive the Beach is your only opportunity near Sydney to float through a magic coastal view with the sky rushing past, to land right on the sand or the coastal strip beside the beach. That's not the only way to fly - hang gliding lets you gracefully ride the wind and marvel at all you can see. Others may prefer to loop the loop in a historic biplane or a mean-looking fighter.

1st stop:

Hang Gliding

Bald Hill is one of the world's best hang gliding locations that thousands of people visit to admire the grace of the colourful gliders as they take off by simply jogging down a slope and then rise on the thermals to see the world from a totally different perspective. Many decide to join them in the air for a tandem flight with an expert pilot. You'll love the sense of weightlessness as you silently soar above sea, coastline and escarpment. 

Your pilot will show you key features as the spectators in the car park become smaller and smaller. There are several established operators and you can book online for your next adventure with Sydney Hang Gliding Centre.

Cliff to Coast Sports Car Drives

No other drive is like a Porsche and this is your chance to get behind the wheel of three or four different 911 Carreras or a Boxster on some roads that will really let you drive them for the full Porsche experience.

The Cliff to Coast vehicles are beautifully set up and immaculately maintained. As you traverse coastal and mountain roads, it will be hard to decide which is the most exciting, the vehicles with their unique sound or the spectacular scenery. 

Choose from full day tours driving four different Porsches, half day with three models, shorter drives such as the Sea Cliff Blast or Coffee Cruise. Custom trips can be designed to suit your needs.

Skydive the Beach Australia

The only beach skydive in the Sydney region, and what an experience! 

You'll freefall above ocean and sand, making memories for a lifetime. You'll jump from Australia's highest altitude of up to 14,000 feet, directly over North Wollongong beach and land right on the sand or the coastal trip beside. Experience the ultimate thrill of freefall at over 200 km/hr for up to an insane 60 seconds, and then float for 5-7 minutes soaking up spectacular views. 

Skydive Australia has become one of the most popular activities along the drive and there are many available times to make it easy for you. Free return transfers available.

Southern Biplane Adventures

Open cockpit flying in a biplane is the ultimate buzz, unless you count an adrenaline-pumping aerobatic joy flight, or a hands-on flying experience. 

The planes are the beautifully restored and painted Boeing Stearman and the famed Pitts Special S2C. Southern Biplane Adventures will take you on a series of mid air experiences starting with the shorter Hot Lap Scenic and Hot Lap Ultimate to the Cliffy featuring the Sea Cliff Bridge the way you've never seen it before. Then there are longer flights such as the Smithy Experience or the Combo. Several like the Stunt Pilot will have you looping and barrel rolling at 3000ft with an expression of pure exhilaration on your face!

Your mission will be led by a true fighter pilot in an L39 Albatros jet capable of over 900kph or a BAC Jet Provost MK5A. You'll experience the excitement, the G forces as you sweep across the coast and sea and twist and turn through the sky in genuine air combat manoeuvres at breathtaking speeds. Your pilot will explain the jet and his job, drawing on years of cockpit experience. You don't get any higher!
