Adventure / Outdoors
From canyoning and abseiling, to jumping off bridges or the Sky Tower, Auckland has many adventure activities.
Auckland’s rugged west coast is the perfect place to try canyoning. Deep in the heart of the Waitakere rainforest, visitors can abseil down waterfalls, jump off cliffs into deep pools and slide down smooth natural hydro slides.
Auckland is home to the Sky Tower which at 328m is the tallest structure in the southern hemisphere. The Sky Tower's three observation levels offer 360-degree views of Auckland, and the chance to ‘skywalk’ around the outside or ‘skyjump’ 192m in the air.
The iconic harbour bridge, opened in 1959, provides other adventures. Visitors can climb over, under and jump from the spectacular bridge that dominates Auckland’s inner harbour.
The world-first harbour bridge bungy jump - operated by bungy originals AJ Hackett Bungy - is a safe, fun and interactive way to experience Auckland from another perspective.
