The Highest Tightrope Walk in The Southern Hemisphere Looks Terrifying

This fearless daredevil is Kane Petersen, who has successfully walked a tightrope 300 metres above the ground at the Skydeck of the Eureka Tower on September 16th 2015 in Melbourne, Australia.

The walk was the highest tightrope walk ever attempted in the Southern Hemisphere, and marked the arrival of ‘The Walk’ to Australian cinemas in October. The high-wire artist evoked the film’s French high-wire artist Philippe Petit, who successfully walked between the twin towers of the World Trade Center in 1974.
