Welcome to the Canungra Hanggliding and Paragliding Club (CHGC) website. This site is dedicated to providing information on free-flying sites within the Canungra Valley region, Queensland, Australia.
The CHGC is an association of both paraglider and hangglider pilots, dedicated to the advancement of free flight in the Scenic Rim. The region hosts some of the best paragliding sites in the world, and is just 1 hour from Brisbane, Australia.
The usual weather conditions in the Canungra area allow us to fly from Mt. Tamborine and Beechmont pretty much all year round, and international competitions are organised by the club every spring.
The CHGC sites are suitable for pilots of all experience levels; from beginners for soaring the ridge lift a few hundred feet above the hill to advanced pilots who will climb to 10,000 feet in thermals and fly cross country as far as Dalby, Warwick, or Kyogle on 8 hour flights.
If you want to experience the joy of flight and literally soar with the local Wedge Tailed Eagles
, join us in Canungra by signing up as a full or visiting member. If you are not a pilot yet, our local instructors
are happy to offer both introductory tandem flights, as well as full license courses.
