Lord of the Rings and the Bungy Bridge

Views over the world's first commercial bungy operation opened at the Kawarau bridge in 1988, and has been credited with pioneering Queenstown's reputation as "the adventure capital of the world." You can photograph this historic bridge and look down at the excited bungy jumpers, while we show you where The Gates of Argonath stood in The Lord of the Rings/Pillars of the Kings movie (this time you really are on a movie set!).
