Paradise Ziplines

Paradise Ziplines combines 1000 meters of exhilaration over 8 ziplines as you travel through pristine wilderness, following the curves and chasms of an alpine river.
Overlooking an area named Paradise, and the peaks of Mt Aspiring National Park, you'll explore a virtually inaccessible native forest and slot canyon, travelling by ziplines as you make your way down river on this unforgettable adventure!

Paradise Ziplines – just $179 for an incredible 8 Ziplines!

Ziplining, also known as a flying fox, is a safe, fun and adventurous activity – while not as extreme as bungy jumping or a canyon swing it's an absolutely thrilling way to explore the wilderness!

This is a perfect activity for a family adventure (minimum age is 10 years). 

Safety First

Full safety gear and training on our low practice line will be provided by our fabulous guides before you begin so no experience is required; just an adventurous spirit. The guides will also attach you onto each zipline, work the brakes for you at the end, take you off the zipline and attach you to the safety line leaving you to enjoy the exhilaration while soaking up the scenery.

Let the adventure begin

A leisurely walk through native red beech forest takes you up to the start of the zipline course where our first line launches off a cliff and travels high above the Oxburn Stream, giving a panoramic view of the course and the surrounding mountains made famous by Lord of the Rings, which are the backdrop to an area officially named Paradise.

Our next two lines are a canopy tour through the pristine native red beech forest, weaving up stream, then it's time for our favourite line – The 'Orc Chasm' – zipping 200 meters through a tree-tunnelled slot canyon.

The next three lines weave us downstream just meters above the rapids, following the curves of the alpine stream deep within the canyon, bringing us to the final line, the stunning 'Blue Lagoon'.

Other Stuff

Begin your adventure with the super-scenic drive from Queenstown to Glenorchy – often considered one of the top 10 drives in the world.  Queenstown pick-up is included in the price, although we can also pick you up in Glenorchy if you prefer to drive yourself.  Our ziplines are just 10 minutes drive from Glenorchy and you will be experiencing crazy fun ziplining along with some of the best scenery in the world, for approximately 2 hours.

Children must be a minimum of 10 years and weigh at least 30kg.  Under 16 year olds must be accompanied by an adult.
Otherwise no experience at all is required - just adequate fitness to walk uphill for 15 minutes.

Our favourite destinations…

Auckland destination2

Auckland

New Zealand’s economic heart and biggest city is also an exciting family visitor destination, situated on a sunny harbour with city beaches just minutes away from the CBD. Orientate yourself by heading down to Viaduct Harbour, wandering the waterfront, checking out the super yachts or enjoying the waterfront restaurants. Nearby is the must-visit Sky Tower along with excellent and kid-friendly museums and tons of exciting activities!

Wellington

Wellington is New Zealand’s capital. Here you will find New Zealand's parliament buildings, including the 'Executive Wing', more well-known as 'The Beehive' due to its distinctive shape. Another icon to look out for is the Wellington Tram, which was the main means of public transport between 1878 and 1964.

Christchurch

With a population of around 400,000 Christchurch, in Canterbury, is the South Island ’s largest city, yet much of it has the feel of a small town. Perhaps that’s why it’s known as the Garden City but with the expansive Hagley Park, Botanic Gardens, Port Hills, River Avon and numerous beaches the city certainly has an open, relaxed feel that’s hard to beat.

Queenstown

With its well-deserved reputation as New Zealand’s activity adventure capital you’ll never run out of activities and things to do in Queenstown, but you may run out of time! With breathtaking scenery, activities and festivals, cafes and restaurants, skiing and snowboarding, shopping and wineries, this lakeside alpine resort rates as one of the world’s top vacation destinations for all ages and seasons.

Rotorua

Rotorua sits on the shore of Lake Rotorua, one of sixteen lakes in the area formed by hundreds of thousands of years of eruptions from the Taupo Volcanic Zone. The area is renowned for its geothermal activity and top of any activity list is to see the bubbling mud pools that are around the region for yourself. The Waimangu Volcanic Valley offers a first hand insight into the devastation caused by the 1886 eruption of Mount Tarawera and is a great place to discover steaming volcanic craters and bubbling, spitting  pools of mud!

Nelson and Golden Bay

The Nelson and Golden Bay regions, at the top of the South Island, boast enviable sunshine hours, glorious sandy beaches, safe swimming spots, lots of wildlife to look out for, and Abel Tasman National Park - an absolute must to explore, on foot, by kayak, your own craft or watertaxi.  Nelson is home to a vibrant arts and crafts community with a fabulous Saturday market, and is close to award-winning wineries and family-friendly bike tracks to take you around the coast.

Hawkes Bay

Napier was rebuilt after the 1931 earthquake and is now known as NZ's Art Deco City.  The Art Deco influence has created a unique city – nowhere else can you see such a varied concentration of art deco style. With over 2,200 sunshine hours a year, Napier is a year-round holiday destination with countless activities to entertain the kids – there's days of entertainment on Marine Parade alone, plus numerous other family-friendly trips and activities.  Add to that the beaches, walks and flat cycle paths, outdoor cafes and entertainment, and you have a perfect holiday destination!

Northland

Beautiful, unspoiled beaches, fishing, historic gum fields, kauri forests – the Far North has it all. With subtropical temperatures, it's often known as ‘the Winterless north', with warm, humid summers and mild winters.
