This is a holiday weekend in Melbourne and the Moomba Waterfest ran from Friday to Monday. Yesterday we headed into the city to watch some of the Bird Man Rally which involves people attempting to fly from a platform above the Yarra River. Some looked only to be in fancy dress and others had gone to great lengths to design their flying contraptions. The winner cleared 10m with a craft which had a wingspan of 7.1m. The even drew huge crowds despite the soaring heat of around 35 degrees.
Later in the afternoon we took Ella & Charlie to Collingwood Childrens Farm. They both had great fun with Ella loving the guinea pigs and Charlie happy chasing the ducks.

Check out the sign – it’s definitely not a farm in Scotland!
