The Kawarau Gorge is a major river gorge, located in Central Otago, in the South Island of New Zealand. The Kawarau River flows through the gorge, which is located between the towns of Queenstown and Cromwell. The gorge begins some 30 kilometres from Queenstown, close to the wine-growing community of Gibbston and the large rock outcrop known as the Nevis Bluff and it continues for some 25 kilometres before the river emerges into the upper valley of the Clutha River close to the settlement of Ripponvale. The Roaring Meg hydro scheme and Goldfields Mining Centre are in the gorge. The gorge is noted for its natural beauty, and is also the site of several extreme sports, notably bungy jumping at the Old Kawarau Bridge, and white-water sports such as kayaking and riverboarding.
