Aussie Day Duck Race

It's back, and its quackier than ever!


Waddle up to Thorndon Park this January 26 to witness Adelaide's fastest rubber duckies duke it out in a ducktacular race for the ages, in support of local community causes.


Simply purchase your tickets below, receive your duck's number, and cheer on your duck to the finish line. Over $2000 in cash and prizes is up for grabs across eight heats and the final showdown.


Will you be a lucky duck?

Join us at Thorndon Park Reserve

A beautiful, natural lakeside setting and Australia's best adventure playground! Thorndon Park Reserve is one of Adelaide's most popular destinations for family, with plenty of grassed shady areas for picnics, BBQ facilities, walking trails, a rotunda and undercover pavilion, and the famous heritage pump-house and kiosk staffed by our club's very own volunteers!
Thorndon Park Reserve is located on Hamilton Terrace, in Paradise SA. Enter from Hamilton Terrace.

Supporting local causes

By purchasing a ticket for the 2024 Australia Day Duck Race, you are supporting our club's many community initiatives. The Rotary Club of Morialta is a group of dedicated volunteers delivering positive outcomes locally and internationally - including the Athelstone Community Workshop, our youth leadership initiatives, the new Campbelltown Community Connections dementia cafe, and our landmark Papua New Guinea Midwifery Leadership Buddy Program.
Last year's Duck Race - what a day!
Our club held our very first duck race on Australia Day last year, and it was a blast! An enormous crowd - much bigger than we ever expected! - turned out to watch thousands yellow rubber ducks sail down the stream and across the finish line at Thorndon Park Reserve. 
A sincere thank you to our event sponsors
