Thrillseekers set to Boogie

SKYDIVERS from New Zealand, Britain, Singapore and Italy converged on Toogoolawah over the weekend.

More than 150 skydivers took part in the opening days of Skydive Ramblers post-Equinox Boogie. The week of skydiving and music is the largest freefall festival in Australia.

Parachuters were joined by wing suit divers from across the region, country and planet to take part in the event.

Ramblers promotions and events coordinator Sonja Bruss said she was thrilled with the Boogie's opening weekend.

"It's gone very, very well," she said. "We had 150 registered skydivers on Sunday alone. It was a really great way to start the festival off.

"We're hoping to have more than 250 skydivers throughout the week, so 150 already is a great way to start the festival off."

Two planes were running continuously throughout the day with 17 divers going up in every flight.

The post-Equinox Boogie will go on throughout the week with entertainment for the registered divers after 5pm every night.

From Wednesday the festival will be hoping to break the Australian record for the most skydivers over 60 diving in formation.
