The Original Kawarau Bridge Bungy Jump in Queenstown

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
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.
  • 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.

I had a great experience with the bungee jumping and the jumps at the Kawarau bridge are less apt to cancel due to weather. Great staff and an amazing experience.

It was once the most vibrant hub of adrenaline in Queenstown but now you are bombarded with sales and merchandice at every turn. They have ruined the site by adding a small, non-exciting zip-line. Greed will be it's downfall.

Hi there, our Kawarau Zipride was added to cater to those that are apprehensive about Bungy jumping so they could still have a good time during their visit. If the Zipride doesn't excite you, then Bungy is definitely the way to go! Thanks for you feedback. Cheers.

What a great staff! Tim was very kind and explained the whole process to me. I regret not remembering the man who assisted with my jump. He was super kind and gave me the encouragement to feel like a bad ass! So happy I did it!

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

Hi Rebecca, we're stoked to hear your husband and daughter loved their jump and that the crew were able to find a good solution to the weight restrictions! It's so great your daughter was able to achieve a bungy and has that lifelong memory in New Zealand. Hopefully we see you back soon. Thanks for leaving a review. Cheers!

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.
