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 kids who want to do things rather than sightsee.

Great rails and jumps

Great little ski park. Oval cable with lots of ramps and rails. You can see it from the sky rail next door that goes up to Kuranda.

Had my 9 year old daughters birthday party on the aqua park. (the inflatables) What an awesome day. The kids . . . . and adults all had a blast. The staff were excellent, friendly and helpful. They had a free bbq we could use and let us decorate for the party. Will definitely be going again Thanks to everyone... More

Had a blast here with the Mrs and her little sister. We were first timers, but the French bloke (I think his name was Marco) operating the cables was really friendly and helpful.

Were driven to top and came down in cable car. Fantas tic but not for those with a fear of heights. The two stops were worth exploring, especially to see the waterfalls and the display of machinery used in the construction. The trip up by train and back on the cable car we felt was expensive. But if money not... More

We went twice, kids had a ball but beware if you are booking for an hour only sometimes the queues can get quite large and the wait time means not many turns at it. The first time we went later in the day for an hour and the queues got extremely large. We did approach the staff about it but... More

Awesome place, no need for a boat to have hours of fun on a wakeboard. I have been here quite a few times and always spend the extra to get a pro board, there is jumps and slides you can attempt which ads to the awesome factor of this wake park. The park is licensed and you can wash down... More

Get pulled along by a cable system riding a wake board. It's great fun and quite challenging so the teenagers will not get bored with this one. May be best to go earlier or later like 3 pm so no need to wait for your go. Catch trans link bus 123 from Cairns and get off at sky rail base... More
