Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

What You Can Expect

Kawarau Bridge Zipline Experience from Queenstown

Kawarau Bridge zipline adventure from Queenstown

On the Kawarau Zipride you’ll reach speeds of up to 37 mph (60 kph) as you zipline over the Kawarau River by way of a 426-foot-long (130-meter) cable. Tours depart every 40 minutes with convenient round-trip transport from central Queenstown to the Gibbston Valley, located just 25 minutes away.

On arrival at the Kawarau Bridge — famous for the world’s first commercial bungy jump — you’ll  receive a safety briefing before ziplining across the river. You have multiple choices: book a single ride or upgrade to three or five zipline packages. Go solo or share the experience alongside family and friends in tandem next to you. 

You can ride forward in a comfortable seated position; flip upside down like Batman or fly like Superman in a lying-down position; or enjoy the thrill of zipping backward as you soak up the views of Kawarau Gorge.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2016

We had a lot of fun doing this. The people at the Kawarau Zipline we're helpful, patient and gave us plenty of ideas for how to enjoy this experience. It's great high speed fun. And who knows, while your there, you may be inspired to go head first off the Kawarau Bungy Bridge, too!
