April 12 – This little Duckie went to Market from 9.30am to 12.00pm

With such a great vibe for our last two markets, we have planned the next three, so pop these dates in your diary – April 12, May 17 and June 14. It’s a cool place to check out the stalls, grab yourself a bacon and egg roll and a coffee and hang out with other fun people (and dogs!) Freshly squeezed juices (very healthy) made by our smiling bar staff will make a great start to the day. Open from 9.30am until 12.30pm. (VIDEO)

April 22 – Courtyard Belly Laugh Series from 7.00pm

On April 22, join us for a night of laughs in the courtyard as we watch Seinfeld. Bring your partner, bestie or pooch and hang out, have a meal and watch Seinfeld outdoors. Wireless earphones provided! From 7.00pm.

April 25 – ANZAC Day from midday

If last year is anything to go by, you all love a bit of 2-UP teamed with a longneck and pies,  on Anzac Day. And what fun it will be!

Join the 2-UP ring and commemorate this day. Salute the diggers with a toast on April 25 from midday. Feast on Aussie favourites like pies, sausage rolls, steak sambas and sausage sangas.  Head ’em up.


ANZAC Day at The Duck!

And if none of these events appeal, just pop in and sit barside and have a chat to our friendly staff. We are always up for a laugh!
