Peppers Beacon, Adrenalin Rush - Bungy Jumping

Adventure tourism at its best! Get the adrenalin flowing jumping from one of four sites around Queenstown. And if you prefer to watch from the sidelines, you can observe from the safety of a viewing deck. 'Bungy', the word that quickens the pulse and stirs the imagination, refers to the challenge and excitement of throwing yourself off a bridge or platform high above the ground with your legs attached by a single rubber band. For jumpers the challenge is to overcome their fears and be able to say, "Yeah, I did it!" Bungy jumping gives a person the opportunity to overcome their inner fears and gives them a massive dose of adrenaline.

Peppers Beacon, Milford Sound

Milford Sound

Milford Sound is simply stunning. It is a natural wonder of world fame. In Maori legend, the fiords were created not by rivers of ice, but by Tu Te Raki Whanoa, a godly figure who came wielding a magical adze and uttering incantations. Milford Sound (Piopiotahi) is without doubt his finest sculpture.
Whatever the fiord's mood - teeming with rain or with sun glistening on deep water - it will inspire you. Nowhere else in Fiordland do the mountains stand as tall, straight out of the sea. In the foreground of the fiord stands the legendary Mitre Peak, a remarkable presence dominating the skyline.
