The ducks have made good use of the recent rainfall, getting in plenty of training before the Rotary Club's Great Corporate Duck Race next month.
Set to take place on Sunday, September 26, the annual duck race will hopefully bring local businesses and families together for a great day out, pending COVID regulations.
Currently 30 ducks have been sold for the event.
"It's just great to see so many businesses jumping on board considering it's such a tough economic time," duck race co-ordinator Steve Semmens said.

"Just supporting local businesses and the fact that these businesses are supporting local causes.
"Rotary hasn't picked a beneficiary yet but it always goes to local causes."
Initially the Rotary Club sold small $10 ducks to raise money, but when the novelty started to wear off Mr Semmens came up with the idea of the Corporate Duck Race.
"Just as a bit of a joke to one of my mates, I said 'well I bet my duck could beat yours' and I said 'why don't we have a corporate duck race' and it started from there," he said.
"I think we had 13 ducks the first year and we've sold 30 already so we're looking to sell probably 50 this year the way we're going."
At $300 per duck, the winning business receives a trophy, $1000 worth of advertising in the Central West Village Voice and radio advertising with 2BS Gold, and $2000 worth of business coaching with The Persuader (Mr Semmens).
The event will be held at Macquarie River Bicentennial Park and will be videoed and commentated.
