I can't see the point of jumping off a perfectly good bridge, but have a look at this site, it might give you some idea.
It will depend what you want to do, and how long you intend to stay, (touring or hiking / tramping)

There's a really really high jump in NZ; 150 odd metres if my memory serves me correctly but it might even be higher these days.... not my thing either anymore (yes, I am growing old ), but I'm sure there's a few members lurking around that have done this! I'm guessing Queenstown on the south island is the best place to do this as the self proclaimed 'adventure capital of the Pacific'!

Beautiful country: you'll find great views just about everywhere, on the South Island especially!!!

Want to try the latest bungy sensation,The Nevis Highwire Bungy 134 metres high, (440 feet). Purpose designed and built purely for Bungy jumping with 30 different patents this award winning structure has to be seen to be believed.
The jump pod is suspended by high-tension wires that span 380 metres across The Nevis River, access is by cable car for jumps & spectators alike.
