Cable Ski - Cairns

Updated: 02-Mar-2017


Cable Ski Cairns, Tropical Queensland’s one and only Cable Water Ski park and one of only four parks in Australia, opened it’s doors for business in the middle of 2005.
Waterskiing, wakeboarding and kneeboarding- anyone can do it.
Cable wakeboarding is an extremely popular sport.

Cable Ski Cairns offers a unique watersport experience to young and old. Beginner to Advanced can have fun and a sense of achievement through a well designed and safe activity. Various equipment is provided, ranging from beginners’ kneeboards to the more advanced wakeboards and water skis for the extreme wakeboarder and waterskier.

The main building hosts the Administration Offices, the Pro Shop and a Kiosk. An open view terrace with chairs and tables invite you to relax and let the day go by.

A beach with umbrellas and sunlounges, a BBQ area and a small swimming lagoon for our young visitors contribute to the inviting atmosphere.

Three years in the making, it took entrepreneurial skills and strong visionary skills to transform canefields in a flood plain area into a water ski park of the calibre of Cable Ski Cairns.

The lake itself is man made, its water level is maintained by rainwater and in the dry season by natural springs.


Located at the bottom of the Kuranda Range in Smithfield, situated next to two of North Queensland’s major Tourist attractions, Skyrail Rainforest Cableway and Tjapukai Aboriginal Park, Cable Ski Cairns is surrounded by mountains and rainforest, which adds to its unique atmosphere.

Easily accessible by car or local transport, the Cable Ski Park is on the main route to Cairns’ Northern Beaches and Port Douglas.

Cable Ski Cairns is just north of Cairns CBD, only 5 km from the domestic and international airport and easily accessed via the Captain Cook Highway.
