Sky Sisters donned koala onesies and skydived from Ramblers, Toogoolawah, last Sunday in a remarkable spectacle to support the Koala Protection Act, a key initiative of the AKF aimed at safeguarding the Koala and its habitat.

The event featured top skydiving photographers, including Emmy award-winner Wendy Smith and women’s fund recipient Jodie Mayo.

Natasha Dingle, a participant, holds the women’s world record for the fastest skydive.

Skydives occurred every hour from 7am until sunset.

The AKF is the principal non-profit, non-government organisation dedicated to the conservation and effective management of the wild koala and its habitat.

Sky Sisters is about encouraging, supporting, motivating, and challenging experienced, up-and-coming, and all skydiving women across Australia.

These eff orts culminated at the event in Toogoolawah, which is an event for women, by women, with women coaches and women centred activities.

The event allows skydiving women across Australia an opportunity to meet, progress skills, try new disciplines, learn, and grow the sport together.
