Good to know

Notably, the inaugural commercial bungee jumping operation, AJ Hackett Bungy, launched in Queenstown in 1988, with its initial leap spot located at the historic Kawarau Bridge. This town is nestled on the shores of Lake Wakatipu, which stands as New Zealand's longest lake and boasts a unique lightning bolt-shaped form, encircled by breathtaking mountain vistas.
