The Shelford Duck Race is held every year

on the last Sunday in February,

although Covid caused its cancellation in 2021.

If not a Festival by definition…

…the day certainly does not lack

a festive/carnival atmosphere…

…which peaks for the Duck Race

along the Leigh River.

The closest I can think of for

Easter Yellow is the

Shelford Duck Race.

Shelford is about a 45 minute drive from Geelong.

The last Sunday in February the township holds a

fundraising duck race…among other attractions.

Visitors purchase a duck and mid-afternoon the race begins.

After several hundred metres of racing along with the current

the winner crosses a finish line and it’s owner wins a prize.

A fun day for all ages
