Queenstown is considered by many sportsmen as the capital of extreme sports. It is situated in Otago region, in the South Island, New Zealand.

Kawarau River lies on the east side of Queenstown, beginning its course from Lake Wakatipu and extending at 60 km/37 mi further away, until it merges with Lake Dunstan. The river and the surrounding area has been used as the setting for the film Lord of the Rings.

You can access Kawarau Bridge through the main road that connects Queenstown and Cromwell. Allow one hour, if you get there with your own car.
