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.

  • Pulled over to stretch our legs and decided on spur of the moment to visit. Just did the bridge and walk which we found interesting and informative. 
  • The cost was $10 to walk the bridge and after that you could take a walk around the other side but most people are there to walk the bridge and/or try the flying fox or comet as they call it for anoth...  read more »

  • The bridge is interesting and worth walking across but when it's busy it's a bit slow (one way only). On a nice day bring swimming gear to jump in the river along the walk. And bugspray isn't a bad idea.
  • For 10 dollars per adult, you can cross the bridge. The sights on the peninsula are nice, especially the information regarding the 2010 flooding. The bridge itself is quite cool, I do recommend to be early otherwise it can be crowded! After crossing the bridge, you may go back by zipline, which is 30 dollars. The zipline across the river is pretty cool, but offcourse quite short ;-) It is therefore quite expensive, so decide for yourself if you want to go! But the bridge alone was worth it. Btw, watch out for the bees! Do not bring a bright coloured car, as they will gather around your four-wheeled flower....
  • Short fun hike and very pretty.
  • Good stop for a nice walk - easy but nice :) price is $10 per person to cross the bridge by foot.
  • A good place for some quiet fun...
