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’ll receive orientation and safety briefings from the guides, and you can choose from multiple jump options to suit your taste and budget.
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.

Absolutely awesome

I did the Kawarau Bridge jump with my 16 year old daughter (separately, not tandem) and we both loved it. The jump itself was great but the professionalism and friendliness of the staff was so striking - perfect in such a terrifying situation! Highly recommended.

When I Jumped off a Bridge for Fun

43 metres looks a lot higher when I'm about to jump out into thin air. 5-4-3-2-1... But I jump anyway, plummeting through the air, feeling like I'm attached to nothing at all. What the hell did you just do, says my brain. You're gonna die....More

Always fun - watching or jumping

Well, it's an NZ icon. When you are hooked on then this site has to be on your list because it's the first commercial jump site. Have done it a couple of times, from time to time one of our guests is a thrill seeker....More
