This fearless daredevil is Kane Petersen, who has successfully walked a tightrope 984 feet (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 ā€˜The Walkā€™ to Australian cinemas in October. Kane Petersen evoked the filmā€™s French high-wire artist Philippe Petit, who successfully walked between the twin towers of the World Trade Center in 1974.
