High Adventure is the only  HGFA approved and Insured training facility located in Laurieton/Port Macquarie on the Mid North Coast of NSW, 4 hours north of Sydney, we are the only place where you can learn both coastal and inland paragliding in an area described as Pilots Paradise. 


What sets us apart? High Adventure has been teaching students since 1987 and is synonymous with quality teaching. Many of the hundreds of students that have learnt at High Adventure  have gone on to become accomplished competition pilots. Although in 30 years the reins have changed and new experience has been gained, the premise of High Adventure remains the same – quality teaching with experienced instructors. 


We are a full service school offering accommodation in self contained cottages and classroom teaching onsite. We operate from commercial premises that are run for the purpose of our paragliding school. Our school is based in Laurieton, 300 mtrs from the Shops and pub and 250mtrs from the crystal clear waters of the Camden Haven. You can wake up, make a coffee and watch the paragliding pilots launch off  North Brother mountain. Our location is second to none, you won’t even need your car – its all here at our door step!

Had a good trip back, home about 11pm. really enjoyed the week, was a great personal challenge for me not being that fond of heights myself but was starting to get bit easier by the end, unpacked and repacked the wing today, wouldnt believe it not a tangle or twist in it! I enjoyed the way you teach, you treat people like adults and your approach to safety made me feel safe enough to have a go at everything you requested us to do, your habit of repeating necessary instruction gave me more confidence in carrying the direction out.... eventually!
