Here we pay homage to the most spectacular and unique bridges of New Zealand.
The Redwoods Treewalk is a over half a kilometre long walkway that consists of a series of 21 suspension bridges traversing the gaps between majestic 110 year old Redwood trees. Picture by @thisisyugen(opens in new window).
This bridge is found on the Hauraki Rail Trail in the Coromandel region. This is part of a famous cycle trail that follows old railway lines over incredible bridges and through native forest. Picture by @simonharrycollins.(opens in new window)
Aoraki/Mount Cook National Park is a rugged land of ice and rock. Walking one of the tracks is the best way to experience the untouched land. Enjoy three swingbridges on your way to the glacial lake. Picture by @moniqueoneil.(opens in new window)
A short walk from the Haast Highway, in Mount Aspiring National Park, are the Blue Pools with some of the bluest water the world has to offer. It's so clear that from the bridge you can often see New Zealand’s famous brown and rainbow trout migrating. Picture by @annes_travelbooklet.
This popular hike offers stunning swingbridges in true kiwi style through stunning forest, across rivers and beside alpine vistas before finishing up at the Welcome Flat Hot Pools. Picture by @angelo_zinna(opens in new window).
Ok, so technically this isn't a picture of a bridge. But no bridge listicle would be complete without honoring the strong kiwi tradition of jumping off them. So why not experience bungy jumping off one of the many bridges around the country. Picture by @emirga(opens in new window).
This historic bridge crosses over the Shotover River in the South Island of New Zealand. It's listed by the New Zealand Historic Places and was originally built to help ease the passage of gold miners in the region. Picture by @stockman05.(opens in new window)
