Great Rotary Duck Race

Yes,'s on again.

Feathers will fly (not really) when the ducks take to the rapids again this year for charity.

The good work is done by the Kurrajong North Richmond Rotary Club and you can see all the action on Saturday September 7th, 2019 at 1:30pm.

You can purchase a 'duck' for the race on the day and money raised goes to a worthy charity.

Great prizes to be won on the day!
