Twilight on the Duck (Cancelled due to COVID Restrictions)Australia Day

Circular Head celebrates Australia Day each year with the ''Twilight on the Duck' festival on the banks of the Duck River in Smithton.

''Twilight on the Duck' offers low cost family entertainment and competitions, live music, great food and a spectacular twilight fireworks show. Annual activities such as the 'Duck Race', add a fun, local flavour.

This event showcases Circular Head's local produce, talent and uniqueness. It is primarily funded by council with sponsorship from local businesses. The event is a collaborative one, organised by a committee of volunteers and council staff. This committee has been working over several years to grow our Australia Day celebrations into a major event.

For more information about 'Twilight on the Duck' or to express interest in being part of our annual Australia Day celebrations at West Esplanade, Smithton please contact the Community Services Department at Circular Head Council on 6452 4800.You may also like to visit the Twilight on the Duck Facebook page
