Adventure in the air

In Perth action and adventure is all around you, even in the sky - from dazzling scenic flights to thrilling skydives.

There's an adventure based aviation experience guaranteed to get your adrenalin rushing. In the Avon Valley, an hour's drive east of the city, uncongested airspace, open farmlands and great weather conditions create the perfect environment for a number of aviation pursuits.

Recreational opportunities that exist for the aviation enthusiast include skydiving, gliding, flight training, hang gliding, micro lighting and hot air ballooning. The Avon Valley also offers many paragliding sites, including hills for foot launching and paddocks for tow launching. Perth City, Rockingham and the Mandurah region also offer some high speed aviation activities!
