Overview
REMEMBER WHEN YOU THOUGHT YOU COULDN’T DO IT. WHEN YOU WERE TOO NERVOUS, TOO TIMID, TOO SCARED. THIS WAS NOT FOR YOU. YOU WANTED TO BACK OUT. BUT YOU DIDN’T. YOU TOOK A DEEP BREATH AND STEPPED FORWARD. BECAUSE IF YOU CAN DO THIS, YOU CAN DO ANYTHING.

Home of the World’s First and most famous of leaps, this 43m (141ft) Bungy Jump is still the most popular Bungy site attracting thousands of thrill-seekers every year. Attached by your feet, you can choose to bob above the water, touch it or be fully dunked. Also unique at the Kawarau Bridge Bungy, you can share the thrill, it’s the only place in Queenstown where you can Tandem Bungy! The Kawarau Bungy Centre is FREE to visit so bring your support entourage too!

SAFETY COMES FIRST – ALWAYS The Bungy originals, we’ve been doing this stuff for 30 years and our crew is the most experienced in the world. We were the first to be awarded an ‘S’ mark for exceptional safety, and safety is at the heart of everything we do.
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 about 25 minutes 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'll 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) in just five seconds 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'll be presented with a commemorative T-shirt, and photos or videos are available for sale.

My 10yr old was busting to bungy today at Kawarau Bridge, she couldn't do it with her father due to the difference in weight. The encouragement and support of the staff found a compatible staff member to jump with her. We could not recommend this amazing team enough. Thank you

At 48 proving you're never too old to do your first bungy! Enjoyed the experience - very professional and cool music on deck helps to relax. Also felt very safe which is most important. However reason for 3 stars is the video was not working and we were not told beforehand.

Was traveling to Queenstown and we stopped to watch the bungy jumping. Many people are braver than me. Stand on a platform with a harness around you and jump off with only a river below. Not for me!!! But it was fascinating watching others jump. They were doing plenty of
