The annual Duck Derby and Claisebrook Carnivale is on again for its sixth year.

Up to 10,000 rubber ducks will take a duck dive from Trafalgar bridge, be corralled by  duck-wranglers to the start and float serenely with tide and breeze to the finish on the sparkling waters of beautiful Claisebrook Cove. You can adopt a duck, a brood (two ducks) or a flock (five ducks), or a flotilla (ten ducks) to raise money for Telethon.

Local businesses are taking part too, with the corporate-sponsored Duck Run at 1.30pm, where runners in full duck costume will skirt the cove, going quackers around the circuit. 

The Claisebrook Carnivale is also nearby in the scenic Victoria Gardens, which will be filled with amazing food from local vendors, an animal petting farm, wood-working with Kids Shed, decorate a duck, bouncy castle, mini-train, mini-tennis, face-painting, jugglers, acrobats, magic and mayhem.
