Kawarau River Rafting
Combine jet boating and whitewater rafting on the Kawarau River! 360-degree spins and stunning river views start you off on your next adventure!
The Kawarau River provides an exhilarating trip for first-time rafters. A great introduction to whitewater rafting, the Kawarau River boasts superb scenery and unique perspectives of the Gibbston Valley wine region and New Zealand’s first bungy jumping site. Float past vast rock cliffs and dramatic scenery that was home to the filming of the Lord of the Rings. Top it all off with the longest commercially rafted rapid in New Zealand, the 400 metre long Dog Leg Rapid!
AJ Hackett Kawarau Bungy
The world’s first commercial Bungy site sits on a historic bridge 43m above the Kawarau River. The view from the platform is unreal, looking out to turquoise water and steep, rugged canyons. Attached by your feet, you can choose to bob above the water, touch it, or be fully dunked.
Experience one of the most renowned activities in Queenstown and discover the best of both worlds - beauty and thrills!
