Overview
Book ahead to ensure your slot at Queenstown's original bungee jumping location on the Kawarau Gorge Suspension Bridge. This popular activity often sells out in advance, and it's best to reserve in advance to avoid disappointment. Travelers of all fitness levels can participate, as you receive orientation and safety briefings from the guides, and you can choose from multiple jump options to suit your taste and budget.
Highlights
  • Full safety briefing and orientation at the Kawarau River bungee site
  • Choose from a multitude of jump options
  • Commemorative T-shirt and certificate make great souvenirs
  • Transportation available from central Queenstown if needed
What to Expect
Make your way to the Kawarau Suspension Bridge, located just outside of Queenstown in the Gibbston Valley. The site of the original Queenstown bungee jump, this bridge and operator have safely seen over a million commercial bungee jumps. Meet your guide at the bungee center, where you listen to a comprehensive safety briefing and orientation. The rigorous safety procedures ensure that jumpers of all sizes, abilities, and body types can jump safely. Climb into a specialized harness, gather your courage, and leap. Descend 141 feet (43 meters) over the glacier-fed Kawarau River. You can choose to jump with another person, somersault, or hurtle from the edge backward. When you reach the bottom, you can even touch the water or go all the way under. Upon departure, you're presented with a commemorative T-shirt, and photos or videos are available for sale.

If you want to touch the water, get ready to be dipped! Great experience bungy jumping with the family. You can go on tandem if you don’t want to jump alone.

I went with my partner to have a look at the original Bungy jump, never ever intending to do a jump. I have never had any inclination to do it. After doing the Zipline with my partner, simply because I was there, I did the bungy jump - twice. Totally worth it - such an thrill

I was surprised how reassured I felt with the strap around my ankles as that was always my fear! Crew were great. Found I had no fear, which was surprising. A quick thrill for sure and glad I did it.
