What You Can Expect

Cairns Bungy Jump and Minjin Swing

Minjin Swing

After pickup from your hotel in Cairns or the Northern Beaches, you’ll be driven to the Cairns Bungy Tower, located just 20 minutes from downtown Cairns. A popular spot since it opened in 1990, the Cairns Bungy Tower features amazing views of the surrounding rainforest and the Coral Sea just a few miles away.

The tower straddles a clear pool fed by waterfalls, where you’ll find shaded viewing platforms, a licensed bar, sun deck and grassy lawn, giving you a great spot to take in the fun and relaxed atmosphere before and after your leap!

Choose from three options detailed in the Itinerary below.


Bungy Jump

Head up the steps to the top of the tower where you’ll meet your bungy instructor and prepare for your jump. After listening to a safety briefing, you’ll put on your harness with your instructor’s assistance, then step to the edge of the platform.

Take a deep breath, gather your courage and jump!, hurtling some 164 feet (50m) off the platform towards the pool below. You’ll free-fall, dip into the water (if you choose, talk with your instructor) and then bounce up as you feel the adrenaline of your jump kicking in!

Once you’ve finished, you’ll be picked up by an instructor who is waiting for you on a raft in the pond. You’ll be released from the harness and rowed to shore where you can enjoy the elation and adrenaline of your jump. Celebrate at the waterside bar as you listen to music, watch other jumpers and savor the triumph of taking the leap! 

Your package includes the jump, a t-shirt and certificate, and you will have the option to purchase a video and photos of your jump for a souvenir of your thrilling day.

Minjin Swing

Experience the Minjin Swing, created as a way for one, two or three people to fly through the air together, experiencing the thrill of extreme speed and acceleration. You’ll be given a safety briefing and harness equipment, then your instructor will get you safely strapped into the swing.

When ready, you’ll be hoisted up above the rainforest canopy to a height of nearly 150 feet (45 meters). At the top, you’ll pull the release lever to start your fall, then drop down to within 3 feet (1 meter) of the ground in just 3.5 seconds, reaching speeds of up to 75 miles per hour (120 km per hour).

After your swing has stopped, you’ll be picked up by an instructor and released from the harness. Have a celebratory drink at the waterside bar as you enjoy the music, watch other adrenaline junkies swinging and jumping, and soak up the atmosphere of this rainforest party! 

Your package includes the Minjin Swing and your Minjin Swing photos on a USB, a souvenir of your thrilling day.

Bungy Jump and Minjin Swing Combo

Get the ultimate adrenaline adventure at a great price with a combination package of one bungy jump and one Minjin Swing, including an official jump t-shirt, certificate and Minjin Swing photos on a USB.

AMAZING!!!!!!!!!! What a great day the Staff where great very helpful and encouraging for my hubby who had fears and doubts about his jump I think if the guy helping him hadn't been so great at his job he wouldn't have gone ahead with it..The swing was amazing a must for everyone , the only thing I can think of that would be an improvement would be a lift to the top those stairs are an effort lol but that more from me being lazy and unfit ..Thanks you to all the staff made my 30th and amazing day..

great staff and it was great to have the pics and go pro camera included in the swing price. think about if you want the camera to catch your face throughout or the view of what you're seeing!! they advise to hold the camera out but i would have preferred to have seen our reactions!

I didn't end up jumping as I chickened out but my boyfriend jumped 5 times, and they let me go on the Minjin Jungle Swing 3 times as I didn't jump. Great staff and great day.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2014

Awesome. Be aware there is an insurance payment of $10 on the day. Team at AJ Hackett were more than happy to accomodate a date change, which was great.

The swing itself was amazing. We went with 3 people on the swing, just 7kg under the maximum amount. This means we had a really fast swing. Lots of fun, recommend it for sure.
