It is built around an inlet called Queenstown Bay on Lake Wakatipu, a long thin Z-shaped lake formed by glacial processes, and has spectacular views of nearby mountains such as The Remarkables, Cecil Peak, Walter Peak and just above the town; Ben Lomond and Queenstown Hill.
Evergreen Lodge is located only minutes drive from central Queenstown hub. Which is perfect with give you the private time away fromt he party goers yet closer enough to pop-in for a meal, drink and more.
From the moment the accelerator hits the floor, your adrenaline hits the roof as you speed in mere centimetres of water along the famous Shotover River and deep into the spectacular Shotover River Canyons. It’s an amazing white water ride, as the Shotover Canyon walls tower over you, your expert driver puts your ‘Big Red’ Jet Boat through its paces and skillfully whips it past rocky outcrops, skims around crags and boulders, and speeds through the dramatic and narrow canyons. Rock faces blur in your peripheral vision and the water sprays into myriads of white water crystals with every turn as you speed in your state of the art ‘Big Red’ Jet Boat at up to 85kph over crystal clear water as shallow as 10cm deep.
$129 per adult / $69 per child.

To some it’s Bungy, others call it Bungee. All we know is that AJ Hackett Bungy pioneered this crazy adrenalin activity called Bungy Jumping in a little place called Queenstown, located on the South Island of New Zealand.
The madness began at the Kawarau Bridge Bungy in November 1988. Over 20 years later AJ Hackett Bungy is still delivering amazing Queenstown experiences, with the likes of the Nevis Bungy, Nevis Swing, Ledge Bungy and Ledge Swing. AJ Hackett Bungy has also branched out with sites all across the country including the Auckland Bridge Climb and Auckland Bridge Bungy, a must-do in New Zealand’s big smoke.
