Kawarau River Tours

42 Reviews

If you’re a bungy enthusiast you’ll know that Kawarau River is the site of the world's first commercial bungy. It’s still possible to take a dive from the bridge that started it all. On your way down you’ll see the trademark sky-blue water and green cliffs of Kawarau River, you might even touch the water!

The river is extremely popular with thrill seekers who come for river surfing, riverboarding and jet boating. The white-water rafting is particularly excellent with rapids to suit beginners to experienced rafters and some calm stretches where you can rest and take in the spectacular scenery.  

More sedate history seekers come to check out the gold-miners huts and relics from the river’s gold-rush days.

Practical Info

The river is a short drive from Queenstown and plenty of tour groups will shuttle you to the river if you book an activity with them.
