Outback Paddle Regatta Festival is funded under the Year of Outback Tourism Events Program during the Year of Outback Tourism 2019.

This event wouldn’t be possible without the support of our sponsors.  The Queensland Government’s ‘Year of Outback Tourism Events Program’ initiative was the first to see potential in the event and gave the event committee the boost they needed to plan for an exceptional 2019 inaugural event. 

Following the Queensland Government, the event committee contact the PA Foundation to ask if we could partner with them to deliver ‘The Outback’s Largest Duck Race’.  With these two entities on-board the committee was able to put together a detailed event program to present to the local Council and other potential sponsors.
