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).
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'.
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.
