Once you get over the funny looks you'll be getting, you're in for a fun ride around Sydney!
The first amphibious duck was designed in the 1930s specifically to carry supplies from ship to shore for troops. The ducks were so practical they were adapted for rescue and commercial operations, remote location access and eventually found their way into tourism.
AussieDuck was launched in 1999 after four years of planning. The original features which made the amphibian a success remain, with some modifications to ensure the comfort of its 50 passengers.
Comfortable coach seats and on-board toilet have been added, and two outrigger-style pontoons provide stability and buoyancy. It is air conditioned and has a state-of-the-art sound system.
What a fun and unusual way to see the varied sights of Sydney from a very different aspect!
AussieDuck's route starts on Argyle Street in Sydney's historic Rocks area, it then makes its way through some main streets, takes a ride through Hyde Park and over the ANZAC Bridge.
This is where the amazing transformation takes place right before your eyes the pontoons lock into place and it's splashdown into Rozelle Bay.
You then cruise past the old areas of Goat Island and Balmain and under the Sydney Harbour Bridge to Port Jackson, the citys main harbour.
The beauty of Sydney seems more intense from the water, and you are treated to an excellent look at the Opera House and many other points of interest in the harbour.
Visitors and locals all enjoy the amphibious experience. No matter how well you know the city, this is different from anything else on offer.
All passengers receive an AussieDuck Quacker and a framed group photograph.
