Things to Do in Queenstown - Kawarau Bridge Bungy

The Kawarau Bridge Bungy (bungee) is the World Home of Bungy Jumping. It was from this site in 1988 that Bungy pioneers AJ Hackett and Henry van Asch launched both themselves and an international phenomenon, which has become renowned as one of the most exhilarating things to do in Queenstown – the adventure capital of the world.

This has been the world’s best known and best loved Bungy Jump for more than 20 years and it continues to set pulses racing amongst the extreme enthusiasts who visit from all corners of the globe, whether young in age or young at heart.

If you want to be tied up & thrown off with a friend, then this is the site for you, as it offers Queenstown’s only tandem Bungy Jump. Just remember that sharing the thrill doesn’t mean halving the fear! Once on the edge, poised 47 metres above the stunning Kawarau River, your final choice is clear – how wet do you want to get?
