Duck Derby Day

AAAAAA     Ducks Ready to Race


Every Australia Day 26th January, Marine Rescue N.S.W. Jervis Bay Unit hold their Annual Duck Derby Day at beautiful Moona Moona Creek (Between Huskisson and Vincentia). This is a great family fun day where you can bring a picnic rug, bring the family, purchase a duck, and watch it race to the finish line. The winning duck of each race will receive $500 cash.

As well as entertainment and duck races, there are market stalls, food stalls and lots of fun to be had by all.  This coming year in 2020 is promising to be our most successful Duck Derby Day yet.  Duck Race 1 tickets for 2020 started selling in November 2019 and tickets for all races will continue selling through to Duck Derby Day.  Race 1 is almost sold out and it is expected there will be at least 5 races on the day.  Purchase of tickets can be made at the Marine Rescue Gazebo at the monthly Huskisson Markets (second Sunday of each month) or wherever you see our friendly uniformed members selling them. Don’t miss out on purchasing your duck as races sell out fast and there are minimal tickets in each race available on the day. So come and join us on Australia Day for lots of fun and for the chance  to meet the famous “Husky Ducky”.



We have a “Corporate Duck Race” which is a specialty race for local businesses.  Any businesses interested in purchasing a Corporate Duck Ticket for $100 will have the chance of winning $1000 cash. There are only  100 ducks in the race which makes the odds of being the winning duck a lot higher. The winner will also get to display our special perpetual trophy at their business premises for the next twelve months.  This is a great way of showing your support for Marine Rescue Jervis Bay as well as getting some local advertising for your business. An announcement of the businesses who have purchased ducks in this special race will be announced and displayed prior to the race on the day. If you are interested in purchasing a “Corporate Duck Ticket”  please contact the Jervis Bay base on 02-4441 5433.
