Apparently bungy jumping was invented in New Zealand and we stopped at the place where it all started. There are certain things you will never get me to do and bungy jumping is one of them. However, we did stop to take a quick look at the spot.
KAWARAU BRIDGE BUNGY
The Kawarau Bridge Bungy - home to the original 43-metre Bungy Jump. If you've heard of Bungy, you've heard of Kawarau.
The world's first and most infamous of leaps is still going strong, with tens of housands Bungying each year.
This is the pick up boat.
Down the highway a little further.
Located on the banks of the spectacular Kawarau Gorge, the Goldfields Mining Centre is a historic reserve, protected by New Zealand's Department of Conservation to depict the life and working conditions of Otago's early goldminers.
Back on the road....
We made it as far as a little place called Geraldine that night.
