As you depart from Murchison you will notice signs for Buller Gorge Swingbridge Adventure and Heritage Park:. It’s the home of New Zealand’s longest swing bridge.  Crossing the white water magic of the Buller River on a swing bridge leads to a park where you can pan for gold, learn about the gold mining heritage of the area and do a giant zipline across the surging Buller river. The bridge is 110m in length and 19m above the Buller River.  There is an admission fee to cross the bridge. For views of the Buller swing bridge turn onto New Creek Road and park.
