South of equator DZs Can't Post

Can anyone recommend good south of the equator DZs (other than Dubai) where they have a good number of loads going up on both weekdays and weekends during the months of December and January?

I've posted the question before and south of the equator has been interpreted as warmer weather during the Southern Solstice. Places such as Dubai and Spain do have warmer weather at that time despite their latitudes and they've been recommended. I didn't want them as recommendations again.

But I'm very happy for you that you're well skilled in geography.

Can either of the jumpers who recommended Australia recommend specific DZs at that time of the year? (a lot of loads going up and friendly environment of fun jumpers who won't try to lynch a Yankee at the end of the night if I refuse to drink a Fosters).

My plans are to go to bridge water in Victoria in mid December for their wingsuit and freefly boogie, then to skydive surf side at moruya NSW of Christmas and New Years.
Then I would head up to ramblers in QLD.

And I'm pretty sure you would get lynched if you even mention fosters, it's kind of like Budweiser, shit beer that's only good for exporting.

Skydive Maitland is also a pretty good option. It's near Newcastle (oz) and they are starting mid weeks jumps again for summer. It's not the biggest DZ around but there are always fun jumpers keem to jump Smile

Specifics - York just outside of Perth. Our dz is open 5 days a week, we have a Caravan and 182. Very friendly, nobody drinks Fosters at the dzTongue

I don't know anything about the east coast dz's.

Winds can pick up so best to have about 100+ jumps or you would be grounded alot.

Vader and I also jump at York, But I along with Vader I would recommend jumping on the East Coast over that time period. As a traveling Yank you'll have a lot more variety, and the boogies around Xmas new Year are great Cool Bridgewater, in Victoria (or Nagambie), Moruya, and Picton in New South Wales, and Ramblers DZ in South Queensland. If you make it to North Queensland check out the Barrier Reef and jump at Tully or Innisfail.Smile
