Waikato Things to Do: 20 reviews and 28 photos
The Arapuni Suspension Bridge is located just downstream from the Arapuni Power Station on the Waikato River. The 152-metre suspension bridge in the bush-lined gorge was built in the mid-1920s to allow workers from the village of Arapuni to access the power station construction site. It is listed as a Historic Place.
I walked across it, it was great, I was so high up above the raging water below, quite an experience. Views of the gorge were pretty good too!
The site can be accessed via a walkway starting on Arapuni Road opposite Rabone Street.
There is a road a little further down where you can get photos looking back to the bridge
