Birdman competition Wellington this Monday 25th

Birdman Wellington has been going from strength to strength since starting only a few years ago, as Wellingtonians compete to be the silliest costumed flyer into our beautiful harbour! Once again Groove will be playing some tunes there.

Held on Wellington Anniversary Day, and held in Wellington’s outdoor jewel, the Waterfront from Frank Kitts Park to Te Papa Promenade, when the weather is good this cannot be beaten for a free and fun family day out. The event starts at 11am with a kids’ jump from the sea-level platform by the lagoon entrance, and moves into the afternoon with the adult and corporate competition sections, with entrants jumping from a specially constructed platform on Taranaki St Wharf. Jumping starts from 1pm but the BMX flip ramp will entertain from noon. This year, its birds and pirates they're lookin' for. Arggh aye, ye can be sure o' that!


Spread your wings and explore your creativity. You could land yourself a fantastic prize and be crowned Birdman Wellington Champion 2016. There will be a whole range of fun and family-friendly activities to provide an entertaining day for all ages, including excellent music stages, kids’ activities and rides, lots of food, and a range of market stalls. See the website more details of creative activities!




Come on down and join us this Monday on the Wellington Waterfront from 11am!
