'I may be 82 but I'm not slowing down just yet'

AUDREY Cooper is 82-years-young and shows no signs of slowing down.

To prove it, on Saturday she took the biggest plunge of all, falling more than 10,000 feet out of a plane.

But her skydiving adventure isn't the only thing the thrillseeker still enjoys.

As a proud member of the SES and an avid line-dancer, the Caloundra local said she can't and won't be stopped any time soon.

"I just want to experience everything," she said.

"I want to go up in a balloon, I want to swim with the sharks, I want to walk the story bridge.

"For the last three years I have been doing the bridge to Brisbane."

As well as this, Ms Cooper said she can't wait to jump out of a plane again.

"It was absolutely fantastic," she said.

"I can't describe it, it was so awesome."

Ms Cooper has been a part of the local SES for more than 20 years and said she is still happy and able to climb a roof if it needs to be done.

"I've learnt a lot from their group," she said.

"I hope I can be there for at least the next five years.

But it's not just the SES keeping her on the move, Ms Cooper also enjoys a spot of line-dancing.

"I do about 100 line dances a week," she said.

"I go from Sunshine Coast to Brisbane.

"I follow the muso's I like all over the Coast.

"Wherever there's line dancing i'm there."

She said she doesn't have any secrets to living a long and happy life, other than being positive.

"Just be positive," she said.
