Imagine soaring through the air like a bird, then shooting up like a star as you fly high over the beautiful Melbourne landscape to heights of up to 2500m. Your heart will race, and you'll want to jump back in line to go again as soon as you touch back down.
When you're ready to hit the air in style, try the Melbourne Paragliding Tandem Glide. This awesome package will have you up in the air with an experienced paragliding guide and instructor, and you won't have to worry about anything.
These introductory glides are always offered either early in the morning or later in the evening. Conditions are the calmest then, and you won't have to worry about any slight breezes or gusts of wind blowing you about. Your first glide will last just 5 to 10 minutes, but don't let that fool you. When you're high up in the air riding around on the thermal currents, it will seem like you've been up for hours when you finally touch back down to Earth.
Flights begin from Mystic Flight Park, and this staging and stopping point will be a great location to begin your other exciting Melbourne holiday activities for the day. And if you've chosen to go later at night, why not sit back in the park and enjoy the beautiful Melbourne sunset?
If you want a longer flight, then you'll love the Melbourne Paragliding Tandem Thermic, which will have you soaring higher than the birds for 30 minutes. Flights begin a bit later in the day than the introductory glides, and the conditions will be ideal for strong thermals to form.
You can expect to climb 1200m above sea level when your pilot finds the right updraft, and races into its core, sending you shooting up high into the Melbourne skies. And you can also take an extended Scenic Thermic Tour that will keep you in the air for an hour, and soaring to heights of 1500 to 2500m.
And if all that Victorian excitement gets in your blood, consider the Melbourne Paragliding 1 Day Introductory Course. You'll start early and get trained in all the ways to get ready for paragliding on your own. When you finish you'll have earned your flight certificate, a newfound respect for this growing sport, as well as a desire to find the best paragliding spots in your own area back home.
