Bungy Jumping in Cairns

Of all the adventure activities to do in Tropical North Queensland, there are none that raise the hairs on people's backs like Bungy Jumping does. The idea of throwing yourself off a high tower towards a shallow pool with a giant rubber band tied attached to your ankles is, to put it mildly, scary as hell for most people.

It's all about the fear factor. Bungy jumping for some people is about pushing your limits, challenging your mind and body, and simply being able to say, “I did it!”

AJ Hackett Bungy Cairns

The AJ Hackett Bungy Tower in Cairns is located 15 km north of the city in dense tropical rainforest. The tower is high enough to provide stunning views of the Coral Sea and mountains around Cairns.

Spectacular View from Bungi Tower
Awesome Cairns View from Tower

The Cairns bunji jumping tower is perched above a gorgeous pool of clear, crisp mountain water and surrounded by waterfalls and tropical rainforest. The view from the top of this bunji tower has been described as 'breathtaking and spectacular', and views all the way to Green Island on the Great Barrier Reef can be seen.

Of all the bungy jumping locations operated worldwide by AJ Hackett he describes the Cairns tower as the most spectacular Bungy site in the world. It was also purpose built as a bungy jumping tower, so it has features and facilities you'll find nowhere else in the world.

So seriously, if you're going to bungee anywhere in the world, you really should sample the best.

Bungy Jumping Background

A Reverse Dismount!

More than 1 million people have bungy jumped from AJ Hackett Cairns' bungy site. The bungy cords, attached to the top of the tower and also to jumper's ankles, are made from latex rubber and are designed to withstand 5 times the strain that they are subjected to. Bungy is a Kiwi (NZ) slang word for elastic strap.

Crazy Bunji Jumper
Chunky Air Guitar! BUNGEEEEE!

It is interesting to note that bungy is perhaps one of the most commonly misspelt adventures in existence, known as: bungee jumping (commonly said as buuuuuuuungeeeeee as one is jumping) , bunji jumping (which is rumoured to be the NZ spelling) and bungy jumping (which is the most popular spelling).

However you spell it, it all sounds the same as one is terrifyingly falling through the air! BUNGEEEEEEE!

Girl Bungee Jumping

In Vanuatu, vine jumping is a test of manhood and carried out to assure a successful yam season. Men jump from a tree with only vines around their ankles, and this is said to be the primitive predecessor to the modern bungee jumping. Rest assured, AJ Hackett Bunji Jumping in Cairns has almost had close to 1.5 million jumps and is the only tourism operator in the world to be certified by a safety standards body, and is far safer than vine jumping!

Types of Bungy Jumps (or, Bungee Jumps if you prefer)

In Cairns, AJ Hackett have developed a number of different jumping methods and styles which are unheard of in other jumping locations in the world, making our tropical-style bungee jumping just that little bit more interesting:

Classic Bungy

Classic Bungy
Classic Bungy Jump 'Swan Dive'

The thrill of bungy jumping is Cairns goes beyond the classic 'swan dive' bungy jump. AJ Hackett's bungy tower is equipped with an upper platform which incorporates a diving board, which makes one feel as if they're walking the plank on a pirate ship, a fully operational water slide and a down hill ramp for more extreme jumps in case you don't want your beloved bike or skateboard to miss out of your bungy experience.

Rest assured, if you just want to bungy gracefully, that's quite ok too.

Night Bungy Jump

Bungy Jump
Imagine THIS at night!!

Many already know that lunatics were so named because their insanity was believed to be affected by the phases of the moon. In Cairns, lunatics come together once a month at the full moon party at the Cairns Bungy Jumping tower!

Commonly known as the Cairns Full Moon Party, entry is free and the party in the jungle at bungy tower includes free transport out to the bungee jump site, guest DJ, fire performers and return transfers to the city clubs. Considered by many locals and backpackers to be the social highlight of the month, the full moon party is not to be missed.

Bungy jumps during the night party are charged at the standard rate, however many believe that night bungy is infinitely more exciting and adrenalin-inducing than the day time garden variety. Night bungy jumping is rarely offered at any jump locations around the world, so Cairns bungy jumping presents an option almost as unique as Cairns itself.

Minjin Jungle Swing

Minjin Swing with 3 People
Ferocious Mingin Swing in Full Flight

An Aboriginal legend lends this addictive bungy jumping variation its name.. the story goes the Minjin was a vicious cat-like creature who roamed the hillslopes of Cairns. Today's mountain devil takes off from the AJ Hackett bungy tower, as an intoxicating swing reaching speeds of up to 100kph. I bet your mum couldn't push you that fast!

One, two or three people can enjoy the Minjin Swing together in hang-gliding harnesses, suspended with stainless steel cables. Gravity provides the charge, and wooosh!, you're swinging above the rainforest faster than Tarzan ever did.

Those who have enjoyed the Minjin Swing before you claim it feels as though you are flying!
