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 Dave is now at the helm, 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!

It was a pleasure meeting you and being your student. I have nothing but good memories of flying with and without a motor. I still laugh about my bush landing episodes. It is true that this is the best training school in Aust. Thanks for everything. — Mr Scott Patman Perth Western Australia
