Attractions near Browns Boutique Hotel
Tour the valley of the vines
A wine tour of the Gibbston Valley makes a rewarding experience, no matter if you’re passionate about wine or if you simply want to see more of New Zealand's idyllic scenery. A far cry from the orderly wine valleys of Australia and France, these vineyards are perched dramatically on mountainsides and along the Kawarau River gorge. You’ll enjoy world-class wines here, as well as great photo opportunities.
Tour acclaimed wineries including Chard Farm, the Mt Rosa Winery and Waitiri Creek. Check out the local culinary offerings, too, such as sheep's-milk cheese. If you're feeling adventurous, Gibbston Valley is a base for outdoor activities, such as the popular bungy jump off the Kawarau Bridge.
Try the world's highest cliff jump
If you're looking for something a bit different from the classic bungy, try the Shotover Canyon Swing. This exhilarating jump has you leaping into a 60-metre freefall from a cliff 109 metres above ground before gently swinging across the river.
If this is your first cliff jump, ease yourself into the freefall from a launch boom, to make sure you feel totally secure in the seat harness. More experienced or adventurous spirits can simply leap off the platform and let gravity take over.
