Bungy Jumping New Zealand

After AJ Hackett and Henry van Asch jumped from the Eiffel Tower in 1987, they came back and decided to create the world’s first bungy business in the Queenstown, the birthplace of bungy jumping.

If you are an adventure seeker, bungy jumping (aka bungee) in Queenstown, New Zealand needs be on your bucket list. Home to the world’s original bungy jump since 1987, Queenstown currently have three bunny sites that operate all year round:


Located in Gibbston, the Kawarau bungy is the world’s first commercial bungy jumping, offering a fall from an old bridge positioned 141 feet (43m) above the Kawarau river.


Located at the top of the Skyline complex 984 feet (300 metres) above central Queenstown, The Ledge bungy is 154 feet high, with the bungy platform literally on the edge of a cliff.


Located in the Nevis Valley, the Nevis bungy is the biggest bungy in Queenstown and New Zealand, measuring 440 feet high (134 m)


Does bungy jumping operate in all weather conditions?

Fortunately, Bungy jumping is not as dependent on weather as skydiving or other extreme activities. However, if winds are really strong, it can get cancelled.
