Places like Queenstown is full of adventure sports and also home to some of the highest and most scary bungee jumps in the world. Prepare to get scared!! You could apply to work as a bungee instructor - this job is a lot of fun and you'll get to meet other people from all over the world.

Search out the best prices on tours and sightseeing excursions, when the weather is warm you can also go swimming.
