Rotary Corporate Duck Race

The Rotary Corporate Duck Race is held in partnership with the Rotary Club of Cairns Trinity every year in September. A large field of ducks race to glory for various prizes in the lagoon at the Cairns Esplanade.

Some ducks are specially dressed for the race, adding a further touch of colour to this popular event. There is a “Dashing Duck” prize for the best-dressed duck. Corporate ducks can be sponsored by companies or individuals. Companies that purchase five or more ducks are acknowledged as major race sponsors. 

The Dr Edward Koch Foundation is grateful for the sponsorship of the many corporations that sponsor a duck/s and to the ongoing support of the Rotary Club of Cairns Trinity and in the past, the Rotary Club of Cairns Mulgrave. The proceeds of the duck race help the Foundation with their Life Suicide Prevention Program.

We are proud to be associated with Rotary in this wonderful light-hearted Duck Race which has captured the spirit of the local community and provided so many needed benefits.

Watch this space for the 2021 event planned for October.
