Water skiing has become one of the most popular leisure activities for many Australians and Lake Mulwala is regarded as one of the most popular lakes for skiers.
The hot, dry, calm conditions of the Sun Country on the Murray region, and the large expanse of water stretching all the way from Lake Mulwala to Bundalong provides perfect conditions for family groups and water skier enthusiasts.
As Lake Mulwala is held at a constant level throughout the summer months, it is a huge drawcard and magnet for water skiers far and wide.
Wake boarding and other water sports have increased in popularity as boats have adapted their designs to create large wakes.
Ski hire operators have provided tuition for many thousands of people who have learnt to ski on Lake Mulwala.
