Buller Gorge Swing Bridge, Nelson-Tasman Region

3.0
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 »

  • Great thing. When you are there buy a ticket to cross the bridge and slide back on the cable across the river. That is great fun indeed. Take care of mosquitos on other side. They try to eat you alive.
  • Not sure why you would pay to walk across a bridge. Happy to pay for other activities inside, but not to spend 10 minutes to walk on the bridge and then leave. Maybe they could consider free entry and make money in other ways.
  • I don't think this is a place to come to specially, but it is a good place for a break. We just did the bridge and the short walk which we thought was a bit steep at $10, but they have to cover their costs. Other people on tighter budgets just walked away. There were quite a few people doing the rafting and the jet boat. The zip line was a bit ho humm as all it did was cross the river.
  • Great views. Friendly crowd. Should have brought my togs for a jump off the swing bridge.
  • So beautiful! Helpful staff and nice environment.
