New Zealand

In February this year I went to New Zealand to visit my daughter Leia who is now living in Wellington. During my visit I went to Queensland on the South Island and well you cannot go there and not do a Bungy from the famous Kawarau Bridge.


The first commercial Bungy Jumping operation started from this bridge in 1988 by AJ Hackett.






The bridge platform is 43 metres above the Kawarau River and the jumper has the option of a head and shoulders splashdown in the river if you feel like cooling off.




The Kawarau Bridge Bungy - home to the original 43metre Bungy Jump. 

If you've heard of Bungy, you've heard of Kawarau. The world's first and most infamous of leaps.




If you are ever in Queensland do it, you won't regret it
