New Zealand is where bungy jumping first started, on a bridge near Queenstown by a man named A.J. Hackett. You can still jump off that bridge, along with a variety of other jumps from rail viaducts, stadiums, towers, and other custom bungy platforms. The Nevis “plunge” – aptly named – is the country’s highest jump, at 134-metres. Don’t want to get up in the air? Try zorbing instead.
Best places for Bungee Jumping in New Zealand: Kawarau Bungy Site, Nevis (New Zealand’s highest), Auckland Harbour Bridge, and Taupo Bungy (over Waikato river)
