Top 5 New Zealand bungy jumps to get your heart going!

Kawarau Bridge Bungy - Queenstown

The world’s first commercial bungy jump, the 43 metre Kawarau Bridge bungy kicked off AJ Hackett’s global empire. Be a part of bungy history and take your first jump over the turquoise waters of the Kawarau River. With options to choose between a solo or tandem jump and different levels of water immersion, this is a great location for your first bungy experience!

Nevis Bungy - Queenstown

Suspended a gut-wrenching 134 metres above the beautiful Nevis River, the Nevis bungy takes out the title of highest bungy in New Zealand and Australia (by a huge margin!). With the site accessible only by AJ Hacketts fleet of 4x4 buses, this jump pulls out all the stops for an outstanding adventure experience! With only solo jumps allowed at the Nevis bungy, if you are desperate to jump with a buddy why not give the Nevis Swing a go? An eye-watering 120 kilometre per hour giant swing that swoops you in a 300 metre arc across the canyon. This one is reserved for the most daring (or crazy) at heart.

Taupo Bungy – Taupo

New Zealand’s tallest water touch bungy, Taupo bungy will have you plunging 47 metres into the sparking waters of the Waikato River. Fear not though, if you’d rather keep dry there are several different options for water immersion. Choose from a dry touch to full immersion bungy as well as numerous different jump styles to get your adrenaline going.

The Ledge Bungy - Queenstown

The only location offering night jumps in New Zealand, the Ledge bungy sees you jumping out from a platform suspended 400 metres up at the top of the Skyline Gondola, the bright lights of Queenstown twinkling below. With a bungy length of 48 metres, you can choose to jump in your own style at the Ledge – forwards, backwards, legs apart and more – there’s even a short runway to get your speed up!

Auckland Bridge Bungy – Auckland

The world’s first harbour bridge bungy and the only ocean touch bungy anywhere! Take a breath, leap 40 metres off the iconic Harbour Bridge, and plunge your hands into the Pacific Ocean. If the thrill of the bungy doesn’t satisfy your adrenaline craving, why not join a harbour bridge climb? Take a tour of the steel catwalks that make up the bridge as you wander above the cars streaming along underneath you.
