Let's Go Quackers!

For as little as $10, you can support a great local charity and help Tasmanians living with melanoma. This annual fundraiser is run by Melanoma Tasmania to aid its important work supporting Tasmanians with melanoma and their families and raising awareness about melanoma in our State.

How does Go Quackers work?

Ducks must be purchased before the day. Come along on 14 October to scoop your ducks out of the pool at this fun family event. Every duck wins a prize! We'll also have a sausage sizzle, tea, coffee and soft drinks by gold coin donation. If you can't make it, we'll arrange prize collection in the greater Hobart area after the event. Buy as many tickets as you like! Note: Each ticket corresponds to one duck and there are no sales on the day so be sure to pre-purchase your tickets here:
