This is a unique cable-driven water skiing park that my son tried twice during our recent vacation. It's mostly used by locals, but is open to anyone and they treated us fine, so I'd like to review it. It's a good spot for active teens and older...more

Arrived for an early morning session. The staff were welcoming and full of tips and tricks. Plenty of food options and shade for partners or friends who want to observe.
Good exercise on the boards and walking back when you fall off :)

First we went on the aqua park - an inflatable floating obstacle course (note:only set up on weekends at the time of year we went) - which was lots of fun. One 50 min session is quite enough. Then onto the cable water skiing. As...More
After 4 days of Cairns rain, we decided to have a go at this.
Quick video brief, kitted up, & straight onto the knee board, & then dragged head first into the water.
It's an awesome time - rain or sunny day.
I should've paid...More
