The Great Duck Race
On the second Sunday of November each year, the Great South Australian Duck Race is held in the Soldiers Memorial Park at the beautiful township of Strathalbyn.
Activities include 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 will be a tickets for sale on the day (but, please, get in quickly). Tickets will also be available on the Steamranger Heritage Railways service.
