Moomba Birdman Rally 2017

Moomba Birdman Rally 2017

The Birdman Rally is full of splashes, spills and thrills as everyday Melburnian's dress to impress and flap to fly - or fall, all in the name of charity.

Whether it be with the assistance of a fan-dangled flying machine or simply super-hero strength, these courageous souls won't get their feathers in a fluster! Leaping into the unknown they will hurtle themselves off the Birdman platform, aiming to be the victor and 'fly' furthest into the drink of the awaiting Yarra River.

Where man and bird (sub)merge!

The 2017 Moomba Birdman Rally takes place in Birrarung Marr on Sunday 12th March as part of the Moomba Festival held on the Labour Day long weekend.

The Birdman Rally is a competition for home-made gliders, hang gliders and human-powered aircraft. The first Moomba Birdman Rally was held in 1976 and made a comeback in 2004 after a 6 year hiatus.

This serious fun is for a good cause, with each jumper raising money and awareness for their nominated charities.



The Birdman Rally is run by the City of Melbourne.


Date: Sunday 12th of March 2017
