KAWARAU BRIDGE BUNGY OR ZIPTREK

As you shuffle out to the edge of the bridge, heart pounding and mind racing, remember this – you’ve

found yourself at the World Home of Bungy. If you would like something a little lower on the adrenaline scale but you still want to be outdoors with stunning views, opt for Ziptrek instead.
