My hang gliding experience with Sydney Hang Gliding Centre was absolutely amazing! Chris and his team are very friendly and excellent with communication. It was a very busy public holiday at Stanwell Tops, which meant a bit of hanging around so that other people could have their turn etc. But Chris made sure I got my moneys worth. Due to... More

It took a while to find a suitable day during July an august but Chris Boyce was in constant touch until the right day came along. Some simple instructions and we were off, floating above the cliffs but always felt that Chris was in complete control. The view and experience are fabulous. Shared the sky with a sea eagle. All...

I've been to the lookout a few times, beautiful view, great motorcycle ride through the royal national park, but never thought I'd be jumping off the cliff! The team at Sydney hang gliding were very professional, friendly and put our minds at ease. Had an amazing flight, u really do glide through the air. We received a memory stick full... More

I was uber scared and nervous before jumping off the cliff. My "pilot" was way calm and quickly put me at ease. Chris and his crew were great! They answered all of our questions prior to booking and picked us up and dropped us off at the train station. Their love of hang gliding was infectious! They also give you... More

I started off having a very bad experience with another hang gliding firm. Having received a phone call from the firm's representative, Tony, on the Friday saying that the weather looked as if it would be suitable to go tandem gliding on the Monday, my wife and I drove up to Stanwell Park on the Sunday and stayed at a...

I purchased a gift certificate for my husband for his birthday as it's always been on his "to-do list". As mentioned in previous comments it is dependent on wind conditions so the first time we'd booked we were unable to go. But we were lucky the second time and my husband enjoyed every minute, particularly the take off and landing!... More

If you are a visitor to Sydney and you get the chance, try to take a drive to Stanwell Tops. Watch the hangliders set up, take in the fantastic views of the South Coast and Wollongong, enjoy a coffee or ice cream and take some fantastic photos of the mountains and ocean and gliders. Follow the windy road south to... More
