Things to Do in Queenstown - Kawarau Bridge Bungy


Things to Do in Queenstown - Kawarau Bridge Bungy (43m)

Not only is Queenstown the Adventure Capital of the World but it is also the location of the 'World Home of Bungy Jumping'- The Kawarau Bridge Bungy!

In November 1988, Bungy pioneers AJ Hackett and Henry van Asch jumped into the World spotlight by launching the World's first commercially operated Bungy Jumping Site, off the historic Kawarau Bridge. With over 26 years of operating experience we have become renowned as one of the most exhilarating things to do in Queenstown.

If you want to be tied up & thrown off with a friend, then this is the Bungy Site for you, as it offers Queenstown’s only Tandem Bungy Jump. Just remember that sharing the thrill doesn’t mean halving the fear!

Already conquered the Kawarau Bridge Bungy and wondering what to do in Queenstown now? Why not try New Zealand’s Highest  Bungy- The Nevis Bungy! Check out the combo discounts on our Queenstown Deals & Combos page!
