The climb itself lasts for approximately ninety minutes and a further hour is required for preparations and for return of equipment after the adventure. The starting point for this climb is at Westhaven Reserve, at the bottom of Curran Street, Herne Bay, that is to say right at the foot of the Harbour Bridge on the city (south) side. 70 Nelson Street (09 625 0445).

This company provides plenty of excitement for the adventurous, in the form of abseiling and canoeing. The Blue Canyon located 40mins from Auckland, provides the perfect back drop for these activities. Canyonz provides a pick up service, all the equipment and a picnic lunch. (09 623 9355).

Sky Jump
Located on the top of the Sky Tower Observation deck is Sky Jump , which is an external descent on a wire from a height of 192 metres. It takes sixteen seconds at a maximum speed of 75km/hr to reach the base. It is not a cheap thrill but will please all height loving dare devils. A less scary thing to do is sit and watch the jumpers flying off the tower, much more fun! If you prefer going up than down there is the Vertigo Climb, where you climb up a small internal staircase ending up at 270metres above ground in the crows nest, and if you are game to open your eyes the view is stupendous (0800 759 586).
