Due to Covid-19, The Great Auckland Duck Race this year is going VIRTUAL. Instead of cheering on your duck by the white-water rapids at Vector Wero Whitewater Park, do it from the comfort of your couch! On October 18th go to ‘The Great Auckland Duck Race’ Facebook page.
Can I attend the event on the day?
Unfortunately not. Due to the uncertainty of which alert level Auckland will be in, the physical event is sadly not taking place but you can view the races virtually as detailed above.
Can I still buy a duck?
Yes! Business ducks and Everybody tickets through our website. Business ducks will need to be returned by October 7th. Everybody duck tickets will be available to buy until October 13th

Study in Auckland!
Meet Raukura Edwards who shares “I loved the experience of studying, I felt at home at Awanuiārangi.
The lecturers are amazing. Being able to learn online and through block learning was so much more efficient for me as a working Māmā. I was able to work, look after my tamariki and gain a degree at the same time. We supported each other to get over the line. I’m studying for a Master’s now and I’m learning so much more. I love it!”
You too can help facilitate the learning journey of future leaders. Study with us in 2021!
On the subject of our wonderful council, property owners should take a close look at your rates bill for the current quarter. My eagle eyed wife spotted that the charge for this quarter was 15% higher than the last instalment, so I checked the time period (maybe this quarter covered a longer time period) but no significant difference. So we paid the same amount as last quarter and will require a letter of explanation before they get another red cent. The really annoying thing as others have pointed out is that they dont give a stuff about ratepayers, are quite happy to destroy our neighbourhoods in the name of progress (remember, anything done in the name of progress of man benefits only one wealthy group at the expense of everyone else) and use ratepayers as a piggy bank to fund their vanity projects. For example, Britomart which wrecked passenger rail transport in Auckland and now this idiotic light rail to the airport which will benefit nobody in our East Auckland neighbourhood, in our, or even our children's lifetimes.
Hmmm, Waihi is starting to look good.
