November is the much anticipated month for the annual Strathalbyn Rotary Club Great Duck Race. The event is held in the magnificent natural setting within the Soldiers Memorial Gardens on the Angas River in the heart of Strathalbyn.

The Strathalbyn Rotary Club began the Great Duck Race in 1990 and the club is continuing the tradition in what is their major fundraising event of the year. Funds raised by Rotary are spent in the local community.

It is very exciting to see 2,500 yellow ducks released from the starting gates and racing to the finish line for a major prize of $1,000, second prize of $300 and $200 for third place.

The highly regarded Rotary Club barbecue, coffee by the Bean Machine, Dutch Pancakes, ice-creams, frozen yoghurt and smoothies, gluten free food, A Petting Zoo and Native Animal Network will bring along their baby kangaroos.

Enjoy wine tasting, food and other activities.

Steam Ranger may bring the steam train to Strathalbyn especially for the Duck Race, leaving Mt Barker and returning after the duck race. - Stay tuned!
