The famous Duck Race on the Barwon River is the major fundraiser of the Festival of the Sea!

Over a thousand little yellow ducks are launched and race up the Barwon River.

The tide, the wind and a bit of luck are the characteristics of this fun race.

You can buy a duck race ticket and go in the running for a host of fabulous prizes. Tickets are $10 each.

Duck Race tickets are available to purchase online



The Duck Race will be held on Sunday 18 March 2018 at approximately 3PM.
