Skydiving over the stunning Gold Coast is on many people’s bucket list and for the world’s elite parachutists, it is now a reality.
The 2018 World Parachute Championships will take place on the beautiful, world-renowned Gold Coast of Australia.
Over 40 countries will send their National Teams to the beautiful Gold Coast to compete for the title of World Champion in the fastest sport on earth.
Providing for both the local skydiving community and skydivers from all over the world the World Parachute Championships 2018 will be held at the Sports Super Centre in the suburb of Runaway Bay, right in the heart of the City of The Gold Coast.
It is like no other skydiving facility in the world - where the world's elite skydivers are able to pack their parachutes and practice their routines before leaping from aircraft some 14,000 feet above the stunning Gold Coast City before landing back at the Sports Super Centre.
Spectators are able to watch the action at the city-based drop zone, see the skydives on the big screen TV’s and interact with competitors.
It’s a great new addition to Queensland’s Sporting facilities secured by the Palaszczuk Government through Tourism Queensland in partnership with the City of Gold Coast.
The Sports Super Centre was built at Runaway Bay, just north of Surfers Paradise, as a training base for athletes from all over the world competing in the 2000 Sydney Olympics. The centre’s gym, pools and facilities are now used by the local community and travelling teams and groups from all over the world.
The Gold Coast has something for everyone, from Australia’s best beaches, rainforests and waterways to world-class theme parks, sporting venues, convention services, shopping precincts, a diverse range of events and now a world-class Skydiving venue.
