    Event description

    Peninsula Rotary 2.0 will be hosting the Kananook Duck Derby, Sponsored by Harbour Frankston, the proceeds will support local community organisations. 

    On Saturday at 2:30 pm, the Rotary Club will be releasing 1200 numbered rubber duckies into Kananook Creek from the footbridge at the end of Playne Street and they will race to a collection point near Frankston Boat Hire near Davey Street. Some may go swimmingly and others might go upside down and float upstream being less aerodynamic; who knows! However, it will be worth checking out the place-getters as there are some seriously great prizes! 

    First duck to be scooped from the line will win a $1000 shopping voucher. 

    The second and third ducks scooped will receive Shopping Vouchers and we have many other prizes donated by our fabulous Frankston Restaurants.

    All you have to do to take part in this spectacular spectacle is to click on “Buy Ticket Here” and purchase a Lucky Duck entry number for $10. This means your duck will be racing and be eligible for a prize. We will have a podium presentation after the race to present the wonderful prizes. A limited number of tickets will be available on the day so make sure you secure a berth prior to the event. 

    We hope to see you there watching the race along the banks of the creek. You will know who your local Rotarians are as they will be the ones with the cute duck hats on!! If you are interested in being an active participator in Local, National and Global Community causes, consider joining Rotary. Just speak to any of the current members, even if they might look quackers!!

    NOTE: If for any reason we cannot complete the Duck Derby due to wind or other matters outside of our control we reserve the right to place all the Ducks in a suitable container and have someone draw the first 10 ducks out
