WHAT TO SEE
- AJ Hackett Bungy: You can’t call yourself an adventure sports enthusiast and not jump off the Kawarau Suspension Bridge- the one place that started it all.

Apart from bungee jumping there are a number of water sports that you could indulge in as well.
- Skyline Gondola: Guaranteed to be money and time well spent, the city will never look the same after you view it from the ultimate viewing deck of all times. Hop abroad a gondola and ride to the top Bob’s peak and get a 260 degrees view of the city. If you’re feeling adventurous, sit on the chairlift and get to some higher ground and ride down the slope in a Luge cart amidst the wonderful scenery. At the end of a productive day, treat yourself to a wine and dine experience at the roof-top restaurant.
- Skippers Canyon: The perfect place to bring out the adventurous side as well as the history buff within you! The Skippers Road for instance is a part of the rich history of the gold mines of New Zealand. The Shotover River where you’ll probably Jet Ski or boat and quell the thirst of extreme adventure was once considered to be the river of the gold mines. Canyon swinging, bungee jumping and shotover jets are other popular attractions here.
