Auckland Harbour Bridge, Auckland Overview

Stretching for over a kilometre, connecting St. Mary’s Bay and the Auckland city side to the North Shore, the Auckland Harbour Bridge is an iconic part of the Auckland skyline. The longest road-bridge on the North Island, the Auckland Harbour Bridge finished completion in 1959. More than 170,000 vehicles make the crossing over the Auckland Harbour Bridge each morning, making it an indispensable part of most Aucklanders’ daily lives.

The Auckland Harbour Bridge is also a hugely popular tourist attraction. Bungy jumping off of the bridge and guided walks along the spire of the bridge are significant draws. Funding has been made available in 2016 for the construction of a cycle and pedestrian path on the bridge, which was missing until then.

For the ones that always wanted to know what jumping off a bridge into the water below feels like, AJ Hackett Bungy provides the answers. The Auckland Bridge Bungy allows jumpers to leap off the bungy pod below the bridge and even submerge their head in the water of the harbour. At the height of 40 m above the water of the Auckland Harbour below, this makes the Auckland Bridge Bungy New Zealand’s only ocean-touch bungy jump.

History

The North Shore was a primarily rural community with a population of fewer than 50,000 people. Construction of the bridge began in 1954 and brought employment and development opportunities for the expansion of Auckland. The bridge used to function as a toll-bridge, but after recouping the costs of its construction, it was made free to access.
