Skydivers gather for Toogoolawah tumble

HUNDREDS of skydivers and thousands of spectators will make their way to Toogoolawah for music and skydiving festival.

Skydivers at Ramblers will be combining music and diving at the Post Equinox Boogie festival running through next week.

The event is held once every two years in October, and is unique in its combination of music and skydiving.

Post Equinox is the largest freefall festival in the country, the event includes a huge range of skydiving and parachuting action and attracts more than 300 Australian and international skydivers and thousands of spectators.

The nine-day festival will feature all forms of skydiving and parachuting as well as night skydiving and evening entertainment.

The festival's attractions will be open to the public from 9am to 5pm from Saturday through to Sunday, October 28.

Events after 5pm each day will be for skydivers only with the Post Equinox Boogie's registered, licensed divers taking part in the entertainment.

The festival mixes music with diving right from the outset, starting on Saturday.

On Thursday, Friday and Saturday of next week divers will be trying to break the Australian record for the most skydivers over 60 in the air at one time.

Visitors are welcome to watch the skydiving action from 9am to 5pm daily. They can also take part in tandem skydives available any day throughout the festival.

People who take part in a tandem dive can also attend the Equinox Rocks music festival on Saturday, October 27, for an additional fee, normally restricted to registered skydivers only.
