Paragliding Queensland has a number of different flight options available to suit your needs or wants, but all will give you the thrill of flying like a bird. 

Option 1.   HnF (Hike and Fly) Sunrise Tandem.  

This flight is for fit and energetic passenger who love to get up before dawn and greet the day on top of the mountain and fly down after up to a 1hr hike up.  

You will hike up before dawn guided by Phil who is the most experienced HnF tandem pilot in Australia.   Spend some time on the launch site soaking in the spectacular view that only a mountain top sunrise can offer.  Then glide down in the stunning early morning air, back down to the car.  


Note: These flights are suitable only for relatively fit people and the maximum passenger weight is 80kg and we are limited to one fight per day.  


Option 2      High Glide tandem flight. 

Similar to Option 1 but with a drive up rather than hike, and with a later start.    Drive up and fly down.    Great for passengers with limited time constraints who need to get back to their home early, or for visitors to the Gold Coast who don’t want to spend a huge chunk of they day waiting for soarable conditions.  Particularly great during the winter months and for passenger who have any susceptibility to motion sickness as the air is usually as smooth as silk.  Flight time is around 8min.  


Option 3.   Soaring tandem flight (either thermic or ridge soaring). 

The ultimate tandem experience.  Soar like an eagle on a flight lasting (up to) 30min.   Your time on the hill will be a minimum of 2hrs and possibly longer so not suitable for passenger with limited time availability.   Also not suitable for passenger who suffer from motion sickness.  These soaring flights are only conducted between the months of September to April.
