Want something memorable to do with the kids? Well, doing the Auckland Bridge Climb would be an absolute ‘high’-light, I promise you.
It’s an incredible adventure that can give your kids a new perspective on Auckland city. Some folks travel the world to do this. If you are lucky enough to live in Auckland (like me) then it would be a crime not to experience this! Or wherever you are in NZ, put it on your bucket list if you are ever in Auckland. It’s a lot of fun.
Here are 10 reasons why you should do it:
- It is the one and only bridge climb in New Zealand
- A tour guide tells you about the history of the bridge which is super interesting. Learn about the architecture, the stories around when it was built, how it works.
- The views are AMAZING including sea, boats, the Auckland skyline, the Auckland Skytower…
- See Bungy Jumping up close (or do it if you are a thrill-seeker)
Here are some picture highlights of when I did the climb with my hubby Damien, son Zach, aged 11, and his mate Alex, also aged 11. ps kids have to be aged 10-years-old and weigh a minimum of 35kg to do this.
Wearing onesies and ready to climb!
Hard-hats on. Game-faces on….
That’s the mind-blowing view we climbed for! It’s even amazing when it’s raining. Not even a drizzle could dampen this experience.
The hard-hat team. What an adventure.
We did it. We feel on top of the world up here whoop. Yeeeeees!!
We looked down on traffic, boats, sea… and a 360-degree view of Auckland City.
Here’s the team we climbed with. We all gave the experience the big thumbs up.
