What's On in Geelong

Shelford Duck Race & Family Day

Recreation Reserve, Shelford

Sunday, February 24 2019 from 01:00 am to 07:00 am

Shelford Duck Race and Family Fun Day

It’s on again.  Head to Shelford for the annual Duck Race & Family Fun Day.

Starting at 11am, kids and adults will be well fed, entertained and amused by our attractions, stallholders and live music. 

Growing each year is the great Show-n-Shine by the River.  Wander around some magnificent cars, chat to their passionate owners and put in your vote for the People’s Choice award.

The day’s highlight is of course the Duck Race.  At 3.30 our 1000 toy ducks will do their thing, racing their way down a stretch of the lovely Leigh River.  Navigating the breeze, avoiding the snags and the using the current they will tussle each other to win $1000 for their lucky ticket holder.  You can buy tickets on the day or online at our Facebook page.

Shelford is a small country town about 30 minutes West of Geelong. Every February the cricket oval and river bank host a big crowd where there is truly something for everyone.
