$5 per duck available through Duck Race



Australia’s Biggest Duck Race for Cancer Research will return to the banks of the Brisbane River for the 12th consecutive year! On Sunday 14 October, the Brisbane River will run yellow with ducks from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm.

40,000 rubber ducks will flock to water for the show stopper event in the ‘race that quacks a nation’. The first beaks over the line will win their lucky ticket-holder a car, $25,000 cash or a boat.

The fun-filled family day will also feature kids rides, shows and activities, live stage music, delicious eats from the Regatta Hotel.

The event is the PA Research Foundation’s flagship fundraiser for cancer research. Sadly, one in two Australians will be diagnosed with cancer. This is a disease which does not discriminate and the PA Research Foundation is committed to supporting break through research to improve diagnostics, preventatives and treatments for patients faced with cancer.

To support this fundraising event, you can purchase a single duck in the race for $5 or better your odds with a whole flock!

Please visit the Duck Race website for event information or to purchase tickets.
