Buller Gorge Swingbridge

The longest swingbridge in New Zealand... it's 110 m long and crosses the Buller River between Murchison and Westport. It was a beautiful day when I made this trip and the level of the river was relatively low in comparison to some pictures that I have seen before.

The whole Buller Gorge Swingbridge Adventure and Heritage Park is a really fantastic area in the middle of the nature and so I took the chance for an extended walk to explore it. There's also a waterfall on one of the tracks but as I'll have a separate report with some of the waterfalls I've visited there will be no pictures of it right now...

As it was the end of the summer season there haven't been much people therefore the attractions like the comet line or the "Supaman line" where you can "fly" across the gorge were closed.

Imho it's one the places that you should've on your bucket list when you come to NZ.
