Paragliding in Long Reef (Northeast), Dee Why, New South Wales Australia
Long Reef is a moderate coastal slope that is covered in grass and low bushes. It is a good and relatively easy site for novice para-gliders to learn how to launch their flights. The sea breeze will be strengthened on summer days, so be cautious. If the instinct for adventure sports runs in your blood, then you should visit this place.
Admire the stunning views on the north to Whale beach and the surrounding area while you are flying through the air. The landing spot is on the beach in front of the Golf Club. Look out for the pine trees when landing, as their lower branches reach out over the sand.
Note: the lower airspace level is at 2500 ft/762 m. The GPS coordinates for the take off are S33.74134, E151.31485. Height: 100 ft/30 m AMSL. The paragliding association is at your disposal.
