What is Stilt Walking?

Stilt walking is an ancient art form that involves performing on stilts. It’s a great way to add height and drama to any event, and our Melbourne stilt walkers are experts at making it look easy! Stilt walking dated back thousands of years and was once used as a practical way to get around wet or marshy areas. Today, it is most often seen as a form of entertainment, with stilt walkers performing at carnivals, festivals, and other events.
