Waterskiing, tubing and wakeboarding are popular recreation activities at lakes where fuel-powered boating is permitted.
It is very important you follow these simple rules to ensure you play it safe when undertaking these activities.
Water skiing rules
- The vessel operator must be appropriately licensed.
- The boat is safe and capable of towing skiers.
- Travel in an anti-clockwise direction (unless otherwise signed).
- Have all the correct safety equipment, and know how to properly use it.
- Always check the area before towing a skier – lake levels are subject to change, and there may be submerged obstacles.
- Always carry an observer who is competent to watch the skier at all times.
For further information on waterskiing safety, please see Maritime Safety Queensland’s website.
