The bungy originators now offer jumps from three sites in the Queenstown area, with giant swings available at two of them. It all started at the historic 1880 Kawarau Bridge , 23km from Queenstown (transport included). In 1988 it became the world’s first commercial bungy site, offering a 43m leap over the river. It's also the only bungy site in the region to offer tandem jumps.

New to the Kawarau Bridge site is the Kawarau Zipride , three 130m ziplines mainly targeted to kids – but also a thrill for adults not keen to take a giant leap of faith. Multi-ride packs can be split between groups, making it a far cheaper alternative to the bungy.

The closest options to Queenstown are the Ledge Bungy and Ledge Swing at the top of the Skyline Gondola; the drop is only 47m, but it's 400m above town. In winter you can even leap into the dark.

Last but most pant-wetting is the Nevis Bungy – the highest bungy in Australasia. 4WD buses will transport you onto private farmland where you can jump from a specially constructed pod, 134m above the Nevis River. The Nevis Swing starts 160m above the river and cuts a 300m arc across the canyon on a rope longer than a rugby field – yes, it's the world's biggest swing.
