Shelford Duck Race

The date is set, the ducks are in training and planning is going ahead.

After a long wait, our annual Shelford Duck Race is back!


Sunday 26th February 2023 from 11:00am till 4pm.

The Shelford Duck Race is the school’s major annual fundraiser. We are proud to work with our wonderful community partners, the Shelford Cricket Club and Shelford Progress Committee, to organise and promote this fantastic community event.

The 2023 event marks our 10th anniversary of this fun event and is expected to attract around 3000 people. The day will see a fantastic family day enjoying country hospitality and fun with so much to do and see for the whole family. There will be market stalls, gourmet food, local wines and craft beers and entertainment all afternoon with the highlight being the Shelford Duck Race.

The Duck Race will see hundreds of rubber duckies let loose in the Leigh River, here hundred’s of spectators will cheer on their ducks to the finish line and hopefully take home a prize. The duck race is so much fun for people of all ages, especially the young.

We are looking forward to seeing you all again and thankyou for your ongoing support of this wonderful community event!
