About the event
The Rotary Family Fun Day and Duck Race is a free community event held on Eater Saturday on the Mandurah Eastern Foreshore.
The event brings all sectors of the community together to celebrate Easter and interact in a safe, alcohol, drug and smoke free environment. There is no entry fee, with free entertainment, displays by local businesses and market stalls involving art, craft and speciality products.
The event provides family entertainment and activities and concludes with two Duck Races held on the estuary. Each duck represents a ticket sold by local community groups and the first three ducks in each race win major prizes. Half of the income for each ticket sold is returned to the community ‘not for profit’ group.
The Family Fun Day and Duck Race was traditionally run as a joint effort between three Rotary Clubs in Mandurah. The Rotary Club of Mandurah Districts wishes to acknowledge the great contribution from the other Clubs and members in the past.
In 2023, the Family Fun Day and Duck Race is a project of the Rotary Club of Mandurah Districts
