Bungees, bathtubs and big birds make Moomba a hit in Docklands
Issue 25 – April/May 2007
For the first time in history, Moomba livened up the Docklands precinct in March 2007.
Over 20,000 people enjoyed a variety of activities throughout the day, including the Moomba Wakeboarding Championships, on-land wakeboarding demonstrations, roving performers, the very popular bathtub races and live bands.
Hampered a little by the wind, the Moomba Wakeboarding Championships forged on, wowing the crowd with aerial trickery. Victoria Harbour hosted the top 12 Australian wakeboarders who competed for a $10,000 cash prize.
Screams of delight were heard along the Docklands promenade as the Snuff Puppets seagulls proved they really do grow big in Melbourne! All they were searching for was a giant chip to be thrown their way!
Empress Stilts – The Flowers, were colourful and serene, proving very popular with children.
Extreme activities – bungee trampolining, bathtub races and an eight metre rock climbing wall – provided the adrenalin rush for those who wanted to get a little more active.
