Rainbow rubber duck invasion at Cudgen Creek

CUDGEN Creek will be invaded by rainbow rubber duckies, thanks to the annual Kingscliff Rotary duck race.

President Nathan Williams said the event raised funds for the club's ongoing project to keep Ed Parker Rotary Park beautiful. He said the club also contributed funds to the Cudgen Headland Surf Life Saving club.

The unique race lets individuals buy a small duck for $5 and businesses a big corporate duck for $50 and race them down the creek. Mr Williams said people were encouraged to deck out the corporate ducks for the occasion. He said the first community duck across the line would get the chance to "duck dive" in a barrel and win a prize.

Victor Lapardin of Victory Ford donated a Ford Fiesta and there's also a chance to win $1000 cash, an iPad, a TV and much more.

Last year's inaugural race was a success, with the club bringing in $4000 and this year they're hoping for more. Everything will kick off from 9am at the Ed Parker Rotary Park at Cudgen Creek on October 20, including a paddle board race. Visit
