Birdman Rally is a competition where members of the public build home-made gliders, hang gliders and human-powered aircraft, ranging from very serious aircraft to mere costumes, leap off a river- or seaside jetty, and compete for distance and entertainment. The oldest Birdman Rally in the world started in Selsey, West Sussex, United Kingdom in 1971.
In Hummingbirdman Rally, players make a flying contraption for the dolls provided and see whose Hummingbird can fly the furthest or the funniest.
Hummingbirdman Rally is a drop in, constructive play piece.
Hummingbirdman Rally was first presented at the Fresh Air Festival at Federation Square in 2013.
