Bruno Rixen is acknowledged as developing the idea of cable skiing. Mr Rixen (a german national) had the idea of using winter ski lifts for water skiing.
Since the first cable ski system appeared in 1962, on a German lake called 'Sci Nautico', cable skiing has spread over the world!
The first recognised cable ski championship was organised and eventually held in Germany in 1985.The sport developed legitimacy over the following few decades and in 1994 the World Cable Ski council was formed.
There are now roughly 140 cable ski parks over the globe.
Skyrail Rainforest Cableway is a unique rainforest experience, taking you on an unforgettable journey over and through Australia's World Heritage listed Tropical Rainforests from Cairns to Kuranda. Spanning 7.5 kilometres in the Barron Gorge National Park, Skyrail Rainforest Cableway glides just metres over the canopy, its comfortable six-person gondola cabins providing spectacular views of the rainforest, tropical Cairns, the Coral Sea and lush Cairns Highlands. Your adventure includes time at two mid-stations, where you can alight from the cableway learn more about this fascinating environment from the forest floor. At Red Peak Station, Skyrail's Rangers provide guided boardwalk tours sharing their knowledge on these ancient tropical forests, amongst giant buttress roots, ancient Kauri Pines and climbing wait-a-while palms. Barron Falls Station has pathways and lookouts over the Barron Gorge and Falls, historical displays and a Rainforest Interpretation Centre.
