    Pinjarra is about a 50 minute drive south from Perth (about 80km). From Armadale you can take South West Hwy 20 (30 mins), or from Mandurah (15 mins) along Pinjarra Road. Once you reach Pinjarra's Premier Hotel, turn onto Williams-Dwellinghup Road and you will find the dropzone about 4kms on the right.

    WA Skydiving Academy also operate free courtesy buses which leave early in the morning and return after the last jump has finished so really you have to stay down there all day if you choose to go by this method.

    Way back in the 1930's this little shop was the local chemist store and is now a part of the "Pathway to Pinjarra's Past" walking tour.

    These days it is a cosy little Bric-a-brac shop where you can browse into the windows of our past with lots of goodies including chinaware, jewellery and all sorts of old curios.

    Take some time to wander in and look around at this small shop packed to the rafters with other peoples treasures and trash.

    There are many interesting affordable pre-loved items and some empty-your-wallet stuff as well.

Pinjarra Warnings and Dangers

    by keeweechic Updated Jan 20, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Age: Only 14 years and over can do a Tandem skydive and for an accelerated freefall jump, the minimum age is 16. There is no Maximum age and you must sign a waiver to say that you take full responsibility. So obviously if you have any health problems, you do a jump at your own risk.

    Weight: The maximum weight for all jumps is 95kg. If you are over that weight and wish to do a tandem jump, you may be approved but will incur a weight penalty charge.

  • A Close Position of Trust

    Strangely there is no thought of the parachute not opening or something going wrong, the comfort factor is this stranger that is up close and personal behind you. You know he won't do anything to jeopardise his own safety.

  • Airborne

    The next thing you know you are sitting in a tiny plane, lying on its floor squashed in with 5 other people including the pilot ascending to the altitude in which you will skydive from. I was nominated as the first person to jump since I was closest to the door. I was fine on the way up (since I couldn't see out of the windows) until they opened...
