More than 200 competitors will descend on Mulwala this weekend for the [Australian] National Water Ski Championships, which will include the spectacular Night Ski Show on Saturday.

The tournament is one of the ‘big three’ water skiing events nationally, alongside the recently completed Moomba event in Melbourne and the Australian Masters, which was held at Bridgewater in South Australia in January.

The event returns to the Max Kirwin Water Ski Park for the first time since 2022, and the five-day tournaments runs through to Monday.

Saturday night will feature a full bar and food vans, with the Yarrawonga/Mulwala-based ski show team to give an exhibition of what “waterskiing is all about.”

“It’s a real family night out, with a pretty cool atmosphere when it’s dark with the boats,” championships committee member Ada Richards said.

“All three disciplines will be on display – tricks, flip-off and slalom – it’s pretty cool under lights.”

The show will conclude with fireworks at 9pm.
