The 1880 Kawarau Bridge, 23km from Queenstown, became the world’s first commercial bungy site in 1988 and allows you to leap 43m over the river. It's Queenstown's only bungy site to offer tandem jumps, and has the option of touching the water when you leap.

There's a viewing platform if you just want to see a jump, or you can sit in the cafe and watch them topple.
