The annual Rotary Duck Dash was run and won in Sussex Inlet on Saturday, January 7.

This year saw the Sussex Inlet Rotary Club hold a record six duck races, which will enable them to complete community projects throughout 2017.

Approximately 3000 locals and holidaymakers of every age flocked to the water’s edge to enjoy a day by the river, soaking up the atmosphere and trying their luck in one of the many duck races held throughout the day. 

Event-goers had plenty of activities keeping them busy, with more than 40 market stalls, live entertainment, a mechanical bucking bull and jumping castles on hand. There was also a variety of gourmet food, ensuring no-one went home hungry.

The crowd favourite proved to be a live magic show.

The Sussex Inlet Rotary Club thanked all of their volunteers and sponsors.
