Buller Gorge Swing Bridge, Nelson-Tasman Region

2.9
An adventure and holiday park, Buller Gorge Swing Bridge offers an abundance of activities for both thrill-seekers and those wanting an all-round gentler take on New Zealand's singular environment. Test your nerve on the many ziplines to catch extensive views of the surrounding native forest, or take a thrilling ride down the river on an action-packed jet boat journey. A number of loop trails offer quieter alternatives: walk along the swingbridge suspended over the deep gorge, or admire the plant and animal life on strolls around Ariki Falls and the river. You can even try your hand at gold panning in one of the country's few remaining areas still mined for the precious metal.

  • Stopped while driving from Maharau to Punakaiki on west coast. The strill around the 15 min loop, walk across the swingbridge and the chair ride back were just what the doctor ordered.  more »
  • We drove quite a while to get to Buller Gorge and when we arrived I asked the lady in the entrance hall where I could find the bathroom. She bluntly replied that this was a private property and toilet...  more »
  • Great day in Buller region. Lovely weather, friendly staff and a lot of fun watching friends do the swing bridge. Such a beautiful part of the country.  more »

  • Awesome! Recommend it stop in if going past. Staff are friendly and prices are reasonable.
  • We paid entry as we needed the toilet, but the swing bridge is fun and quite scary to cross with a little trail on the other side. Maybe not worth stopping for, but a reasonable experience nonetheless
  • This is a stunning river and an exciting walk over the swing bridge however there is a charge so if you are planning on going on to Hokitika you can drive up the Hokitika Gorge and do the walk which includes a swing bridge and equally stunning river for free. There is also a free historical swingbridge just on the left after leaving the Fox Glacier car park. Take plenty of insect repellent anywhere you go on the West Coast however, the sandflies will drive you crazy!
  • Great way to break up the drive from Nelson to Greymouth. Beautiful spot, enhanced by the swing bridge and flying fox ride. Great wee walk around the peninsula - interesting walk and easy for kids.
  • Amazing location. Great Activitys, wonderful value for money.
