Hang Gliding and Paragliding

Wish you could fly? Come out to Lumby and we'll give you a pair of wings...or at least as close as you can get to having a pair of your own! Lumby is renowned as a world class area for hang gliding and paragliding. Whether you'd like to get certified to fly solo, want to feel the rush of gliding tandem or challenge yourself with your own wing in a new area, you'll find the opportunity to do it here.

Though the spectacular thermal lift here is what made the area known world-wide, it's the excellent people, friendly winds, semi arid climate and numerous safe launches that keeps flight enthusiasts returning again and again.

The sport started, in this area, in 1975 when they hosted the first Hang Gliding competition during Lumby Days. Since then, many National, Provincial and Regional competitions have been hosted in Lumby. Lumby has the best areas for racing around a course rather than just racing down wind.
