Enjoy a thrilling day at Cable Bay Adventure Park, offering visitors a chance to traverse the native forest on a quad bike or zoom high above the treetops on a zip-wire. Splash through bogs and rivers in an amphibious vehicle, or battle your friends in a game of paintball.

We enjoyed our Skywire experience. It was one of the best views we had while in Nelson. Unfortunately, there was a weather delay, so we had to wait about 2hrs before we could go on. A couple before us... more »
Restaurant at the base was chaotic. Nearly missed our booked slot on the cable as they took nearly an hour to serve us despite several protests to the staff. Long dusty drive up in a ramshackle mini bus to the summit where the ride was situated. The actual ride on the cable was very good, thrilling and great views.Bus back had no air conditioning and we were boiling by the time we got back. In summary, great ride but badly let down by the supporting infrastructure.
So much fun and so many options in one place.
The flying fox was the best experience ever! Even on a cloudy day, it was still sooo beautiful zipping over the native bush. I have a moderate fear of hights but wasn't scared for an instant! I felt very safe. I could have taken a nap in the slow parts😁 it was so peaceful and the seats are really comfortable too😁
This is out of sight fun. Try the Skyline. It is an absolute thrill, 1 mile each way. Friendly staff and loads of fun.
Had a blast doing this very COOL skywire ride today. Craig Fletcher was fabulous, thanks heaps for a great avo.
