If you'd like to find out more about Jump 2023, please fill out the Expression of Interest form at the bottom of this page.

What about the weather? 

As skydiving is dependent on safe weather conditions, your jump can only be confirmed on the morning of event day. If an event has to be cancelled, we will either re-schedule to a later date, or provide you with a voucher so you can jump at a time of your own choosing.

Is there an age limit? 

You must be over the age of 16 and otherwise considered fit and healthy. If under the age of 18, a parent or legal guardian must be present on the day of the jump.

How long will it take? 

Typically the whole experience will be 2 - 3 hours, please allow up to 5 hours in case of weather or aviation delays. 

What is included in my dive? 

The whole adrenalin-filled experience! Includes tandem skydive from up to 15,000ft, video package and personal certificate of achievement from the venue.

Our SkyDive Australia venues also inclide a 3 month membership with APF (Australian Parachute Federation).

We will also provide you with a JDRF Blue Army shirt and hat. 

Are donations tax-deductible?

Yes, all donations over $2 in value are tax-deductible.

What about the paperwork? 

You will be provided with a liability waiver from the venue outlining the terms and conditions for your skydive. This is a contract between you and the skydive organisation and please review all clauses when deciding if this activity is right for you. 

SkyDive Australia have an additional personal insurance option you can choose to purchase on the day should you choose to. 

How can I fundraise? 

There’s so many different ways! Most people start by sharing their personal page on social media or via email – but don’t forget to personalise your page first! You can also try more creative methods, and we have some fun ideas, resources, templates and tips online. See them here.

Do I get anything else? 

You will receive a free blue army pack with a shirt and cap at your jump day!

Along the way you'll also get:

  • Resources and tools
    You'll get access to an awesome range of Blue Army resources and tools for your fundraiser!
  • Fundraising page
    A personal fundraising page to personalise and share with your friends and family.

  • Coaching & Support
    You'll receive personal support and guidance from the JDRF team.

Is there a weight limit to skydiving?
