Will they flop or will they soar? Aided by a nifty flying machine or simply super-hero bravado, courageous competitors don inventive homemade flying devices as they hurtle themselves over the Yarra River all in the name of charity and – of course – a whole lot of fun!
A fundraising battle unlike any other, Moomba's Birdman Rally sees participants compete as either Hawks or Penguins, and are busily raising money for charity in the lead up to their leap. The amount they raise contributes extra 'length' to their total distance, so even if a Penguin flops they can still take out the Charity Jackpot.
The hilariously spectacular Birdman Rally is a long-held Moomba tradition that is guaranteed to have you in stitches.
