Kawarau Bridge Bungy Jump

Kawarau Bridge is the world’s first bungy site. Bungy jumping came from the ancient tradition of “land diving” by the Vanuatu people in the Pacific. It began commercially available in 1988 by A.J. Hackett, and is said to have given birth to New Zealand’s “adventure tourism.”
