At Nelson’s Cable Bay Adventure Park you can try one of the world’s longest flying fox experiences. 

Clipped into a unique four-seat carriage, the Skywire is a 3.2km return trip that sees you shoot across the treetops at up to 100 km/h. 

Absorb the incredible views over Nelson's Delaware and Cable bays, and on the return 1.6km ride back to base, you can experience it all in reverse. 

Also at Cable Bay Adventure Park you can take a self-drive quad bike tour through 400 hectares of native forest, go for an all-terrain ride in the amphibious Argo, or challenge the family to a round of paintball.
