The Magic of Laurieton

Our school is based in Laurieton, a gem on the mid-north coast of NSW. This location is a haven for paragliding and a retreat for nature lovers. We are quite literally at the base of one of the highest paragliding sites in Australia – North Brother Mountain - with an elevation of 476 metres (1,560ft).

Our school is easily accessible, with well-connected roads and public transport, making it a hassle-free journey for our students. We also offer a transfer service to/from our closest airport, Port Macquarie (a short 35minute drive away), and to/from our nearest train station, Kendall Station (just 20min drive away). So whether you're a local or coming from afar, reaching us is easy.

A Diverse Range of Flying Sites

One of the unique aspects of High Adventure is the access to over 15 flying sites. This diversity is crucial for comprehensive training, as it exposes students to various wind conditions and terrains. 

From our privately leased training hill to low coastal headlands and high mountain sites, our students experience a broad spectrum of flying environments. This variety enhances learning and ensures that there's almost always a suitable site for flying, regardless of the day's weather conditions.

World-Class Facilities and Instruction

At High Adventure, we pride ourselves on providing quality facilities and instruction. Our school is led by David Wainwright, a world-class paragliding pilot and paramotor champion. 

His expertise and experience, combined with our state-of-the-art gear and equipment, ensure that students receive the best possible training. The convenience of having such high-quality resources in one accessible location is a significant advantage for our students.

The Perfect Blend of Learning and Leisure

Our location offers more than just paragliding. The scenic beauty of Laurieton and its surroundings provide a perfect backdrop for relaxation and leisure. Students can unwind after training, explore local attractions, or enjoy the tranquil coastal environment. This blend of learning and leisure adds to the overall experience, making it more than a training course.
