Waterskiing and Flyboarding

  • With a large and flat 10km expanse of water stretching all the way across the lake from Yarrawonga Mulwala to Bundalong, the warm, dry and calm conditions are perfection for waterskiiers all year round. No dramas if you don’t have your own gear (or don’t even know how to waterski) – operators such as Skin Ski & Surf have gear hire and also run lessons for beginners, barefoot, advanced and wakeboarding.

If you want even bigger thrills this summer, soar into the sunny skies while flyboarding. With lessons and gear available, you’ll be airborne behind a boat in no time!
