The AJ Hackett Cairns Bungy tower is situated 15kms from Cairns. It stands 50 metres above a 5m-metre-deep pool. The tower is 30m wide at the base and 15m wide at the top. It’s extremely stable, surviving winds of up to 180km/h during Cyclone Joy, which sat 50 km off the coast of Cairns for several days during December 1990.
The tower is surrounded by tropical rainforest, featuring old eucalyptus and an advancing rainforest understory. Snakes, goannas and the stunning Ulysses butterfly are often seen roaming the site. A carefully designed path provides access through the rainforest from the carpark to the bungee tower.
It took three solid months of excavation before the tower could be put in place. Weighing 26 tonnes the tower was designed and fabricated here in North Queensland.
Our world class Jump Menu allows Bungy enthusiasts to Jump 16 different styles, from the classic swan dive to a running roof jump! Cairns is the only Bungy site in the world to offer this range of jumps, and over the past two decades customers from all corners of the globe have embraced the opportunity to jump. The Crusty Demons ran off the roof with a shopping trolley, Australian TV personality Grant Denyer rode the BMX off the roof, and Slash from Guns N' Roses jumped twice doing the classic swan dive and back dive. The Cairns Bungy Tower has jumped an array of celebrities including the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Miss Universe and John Denver, to name only a few.
Today the site has purpose-built reception areas, a bar, viewing decks, Giant Jungle Swing and an outdoor amphitheatre.
