The Great Duck Race in Strathalbyn
On the second Sunday in November each year, the Great South Australian Duck Race is held in the Soldiers Memorial Park at the beautiful township of Strathalbyn. 2019 is the 30th anniversary of the Great Duck Race
The event officially commences at 10am, and includes a variety of stalls, food and fun for all the family. The Giant “Moby Duck” keeps a watch over all the ducklings whilst “Cluck a Duck” will be waddling around at the park on the day, saying “quack” which is duck for hello.
The Great Duck race will be held during the day and will include 2500 numbered ducks being helped down the river by a huge wind machine.
First prize is $1000.00, second prize is $300.00 and third prize is $200.00. For you to have a chance, there might be a few duck race tickets for sale on the day. If your ticket matches a winning duck’s number in the race, you will be a winner. There is also a Corporate Duck race and the Best Dressed Duck competition.
You can also add some adventure to your day and travel to Strathalbyn on the Steamranger Heritage Railway. Last year’s winner and runner-up both came to town on the train. A great family fun day for all. Tickets will be available on the train and at the Great Duck Race.
