A group of female skydivers say they've broken the world record on formation skydiving.

The group of women is known as Skysisters.

Although there wasn't a Guinness World Record representative in Australia to witness the event, the women are confident they have broken the record.

The Skysisters, performed a perfect "eight-way flock" at the skydive ramblers drop zone at Toogoolawah.

They're claiming the record because the last known record was a seven-way flock formation made in the U-K back in two-thousand-five.

The group has performed many other jumps, including a notable attempt in 2005 to break the Australian record for the most women in a joint formation.

The latest event is part of a week long international convention aimed to support female skydivers and encourage them into the sport.

The women say they will try to break more Australian records during the convention.
