A lot of us are standing on a platform where we can watch the goings-on. Jimmy is second from left. I was taking the picture, and then I moved to the bridge to see how the bungee business was handled.
Kawarau Gorge Suspension Bridge, completed in 1880, is classified as a Category 1 historic place. (A new highway bridge was built in 1963.) Queenstown bills itself as the "Adventure Capital of the World." This bridge is the location of the so-called "World Home of Bungy Jumping -- The Kawarau Bridge Bungy!" It's 43 metres (141ft) above the Kawarau River, which translates into WAY TOO HIGH (for me).
