Freediving Central is Australia’s leading freediving school. Located in Sydney and on the Central Coast, we run freediving courses and freediving trips all over Australia and around the world.


What better location to learn or improve freediving, combining the theory, practical into a retreat is the perfect way to zone in, relax, and discover new places and meet like minds.

For 4 days and 3 nights we will stay on the liveaboard maxi yacht ‘The Broomstick’, sailing around the Whitsunday Islands exploring, fun diving the reefs, freediving and training and even completing a course if you like!

Australia’s iconic Whitsunday Islands are nestled in the heart of the Great Barrier reef and is home to 74 idyllic islands. The waters here are home to some of the world’s most diverse and thriving marine life full of sheltered coral reefs, huge coral structures, overhangs, swim throughs and thousands of marine creatures. The clear protected waters of this region also lend itself to some of the best sailing in the southern hemisphere!
