Discover the thrill of Abel Tasman's swing bridges

Suspended between forest-lined banks over crystal waters running to the rugged granite coast,
there's a bridge suit everyone from the intrepid to the timid traveller .
Bridges are maintained to the highest standard, so you can feel secure as well as thrilled.

Feeling adventurous?  Falls River Bridge is 15–20 metres (50-65 feet)  high, depending on the tide.
Don't like heights? All other bridges are less than 5 metres (15 feet) high.
