When it comes to bungy jumping, there is truly no other place in the world that can rival Queenstown. Not only was it invented here, but it was also perfected here. In Queenstown, you can take on the highest bungy jump in the world, or you could include your name on the list of those who have conquered the world’s oldest jump. In fact, genuine adventure enthusiasts often try both. Find out more about your options for Queenstown bungy jumping by reading below.

Leap from the World’s First Bungy Site
The scenic Kawarau Bridge was the site of the first-ever bungy jump and is firmly cemented in adventure sports history. On the Kawarau Bungy Jump, you will feel your heart try to escape from your chest as you leap from a staggering 43 metres above the sparkling Kawarau River. Brought to you by the bungy jump experts at AJ Hackett Queenstown, this controlled freefall is something that must be felt first hand.

Watch the water get closer and closer before your body springs back upward, and you begin to slow down. Or, if you’re keen to push yourself to the absolute limit, you might opt to dunk yourself in the water at the end of your descent. Jumpers can choose to submerge themselves in water up to waist-level.

You are welcome to complete a solo jump or experience the thrill with a loved one as part of a tandem bungy jump. Even better? You will receive a free t-shirt to remember your once-in-a-lifetime experience for years to come.

But why limit yourself to just one action-packed activity on your trip to the adventure capital of New Zealand? With the Kawarau Bungy and Raft Combo, you can spend your morning leaping from the iconic bridge before taking to the mighty Kawarau River for a few hours of white-water rafting.

Your rafting excursion will have you tackling grade 2-3 rapids as you smile with sheer delight all the way down the fast-flowing river. All of the essential gear is provided (including a wetsuit), and you’ll even get to enjoy a hot shower and sauna after you return to shore.

Both of these trips operate daily throughout the year and include return transfers from central Queenstown, so you can remain focused on enjoying your getaway instead of worrying about logistics. After all, you’re on holiday!

Zip Through the Skies on the World’s Biggest Catapult
Not only can you experience world-class bungy jumping in Queenstown, but you can also attempt a number of other thrilling activities, including the Nevis Catapult (better known as “The Thriller”).

The catapult jump takes participants 150 metres across the breathtaking Nevis Valley, giving you a bird’s eye view of the rugged mountains beneath you. Before you know it, you will be smiling ear-to-ear as you soar across the valley in 1.5 seconds at speeds of up to 100kph.

Breathe in the fresh air and admire the surreal landscape on the world’s biggest (and most extreme) catapult. This trip operates daily all year round and includes return transfers on a four-wheel-drive bus from central Queenstown.

If you’d like to bundle the catapult voyage with other activities, check out the Nevis Thrillogy combo. This combo trip includes three of the most thrilling activities you can find around Queenstown, including the catapult, bungy jump and swing.

Reach New Heights on the Ledge Bungy Trip
For yet another twist on the classic bungy experience, take a stab at the Ledge Bungy. To reach the jump site, you will hop aboard the Skyline Gondola cable car for a scenic ride to the top of Bobs Peak. This is a great option for visitors or locals who are located in central Queenstown since the cable car entry is just a five-minute walk from the city centre.

On the way up, soak up the unbelievable views of Lake Wakatipu and the iconic South Island landscape. When you finally reach the 400-metre high vantage point, it’s time to prepare yourself for a jump of epic proportions.

Once you’ve reached the top and strapped into your harness, get a running start and fling yourself from the ledge. Take in the panoramic views and cool air rushing by your face as you careen back toward the earth’s surface.

This tour operates daily all year round. If you visit during the winter, you can even choose between a daytime or nighttime bungy jump. You’ll also get a free t-shirt from the commercial bungy jumping pros at AJ Hackett to commemorate the experience.

Take this bungy jump Queenstown to the next level by combining it with other high-flying activities, like the Ledge Swing. This trip puts you in total control of your experience, as you head to the top of the ledge platform, sit in your harness - and pull the release cord when you’re ready. After you’ve safely returned to stable ground, you will receive a free cap to take home.

If you’ve gathered friends and family to watch your Ledge Bungy or Ledge Swing, you can meet them at the nearby viewing decks. Don’t forget to purchase the professional photos and videos so you can relive your gravity-defying experience over and over again.

These trips represent just a handful of the many unique bungy jumping experiences available in Queenstown. You can’t beat the thrill of bungy jumping in Queenstown, with the combination of extraordinary natural scenery and plethora of bungy sites.
