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 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.

The last time I did this was 10 years ago and the whole operation is just as slick if not slicker. They take all the hassle of the experience so you can fully concentrate on plunging yourself of a bridge into a raging torrent of the river below (well, it had just been raining).

As a must do in Queenstown I volunteered for this rip off exercise. For a fee of A$200 one gets a free T shirt and the short end (about 30 ft.) of the rope. I was hoping that at least my hair would get a little bit wet but at the end of the jump I was left dangling 10 ft. from

Tried Tandem bungee with my partner . Super efficient staff at kawarau bungee. Felt extremely safe. No jerks to body. No injuries at all. And yet more thrilling than joy rides. Absolutely thrilling.

This was my first time, and while I didn’t exactly love bungy jumping off the bridge, I will say that both the people working that day and the facilities were five-stars-worthy. Being as nervous as I was, I felt everyone on hand - from the guy who weighed me to the two who had

If you want something that is equally beautiful and terrifying then you have to do this. It’s a picture perfect location, the staff are very friendly and there is nothing to match the terror when you shuffle to the edge to make your jump. My advice is not to hang around and just
