or buy a new duck + registration

The Rotary Club of Kingscliff invites you to participate in the “Best Dressed Duck” and the “Corporate Duck Races” at the Kingscliff Rotary Duck Race in 2022.

To participate, you will simply need to register one of your past Rotary Duck Race ducks at a cost of $40.00. If you do not have a duck, Kingscliff Rotary will supply a new duck for $50.00 which includes registration.

Corporate Duck Races starting at approx. 10:30am*

Decorate your duck and promote your business!

Bring your corporate duck along on race day to check-in your entry (from 8am to 9:30am)

To keep things fair, please don’t include added flotation or wind assistance in your decoration.

Note: To retain the natural beauty of our creek, ensure you decorations are non-toxic and will not shed or displace added materials. Your duck may not be eligible to enter the race if determined to be unsafe or potentially polluting. For example, plastics based glitter will not be eligible for placement in the water or the race.

When entering your Corporate Duck, please provide a few details about your business or club to assist our announcer on the day.
