LEAP OF FAITH
Griffith like you've never seen before
If you've ever thought about plummeting towards earth at more than 200 kilometres an hour, your time has come. Tick a skydive off the bucket list with Skydive Oz taking Griffith thrill-seekers to the skies on Saturday. You'll experience a 60 second free-fall before a five to seven minute float back down to solid ground, taking in the views all the way down. Book at skydiveoz.com.au or by calling 1300 185 180.
