A J Hackett- Nevis Bungy

Take the plunge

Located around 30 miles from Queenstown, this famous bungy jump is by far the highest in New Zealand, towering above the rugged Nevis River. The experience kicks off with a 35 minute 4x4 drive over a high country sheep station before you put a on harness and board a cable car suspended from 380 metre long high-tension cables spanning the whole valley. The jumpers, spectators and crew are then taken to the jump pod.

The pod has wall and floor panels of glass, so you have a view of the gorge and the jumpers dropping right before you. The dramatic view down through the floor is only heightened by the narrowing of the canyon walls near the water. And with eight and a half seconds of falling, Nevis Bungy provides a breathtaking ground rush like no other. If you don't fancy taking the plunge yourself, you can always go along and watch.
