Welcome to a brief peek into the world that is Duck Palace... a sanctuary that Sammy and friends visit as a source of creativity, inspiration and healing.  Ducks have arrived from all over our planet and enjoy visiting so much that they never leave.  Thanks to all those who have encouraged Ducks to come our way...we can assure you that they're happy and well cared for.  In case you're interested, there are lots of FAQ's on the side of this page.

Some Duck Palace FAQ's

 

How many Ducks live in the Palace?

i have no idea, as you can see by the photos on this page, there are lots!

 

 

Do all the Ducks appear on this page?

Hmmmm, probably not.  Some Ducks can get a bit mischievous and sometimes sneak into Duck Palace without getting their photo taken.

 

 

Do you adopt Ducks that need rehoming?

Yes!  Sometimes people can no longer look after their quackers and send them to live in Duck Palace.

 

 

Why Ducks?

Well I've adored Donald Duck for as long as I can remember.  And I think that Yellow Rubber Ducks are such wonderful smiley creatures!  They float along through life and even when things get a bit bumpy, they just seem to carry on with a smile on their face.  I think that's a great thing to aspire to!

 

 

When did you start collecting Ducks?

"A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away....", oh sorry, that's Star Wars. 

Truthfully, I really have no idea, it was a long time ago and I cannot possibly explain how much joy and how many smiles I have witnesses because of these Ducks.

 

 

Do all the Ducks have names?

No, however some are already named when they arrive (e.g. "Fifi"and a few have obvious names (e.g. "Tiffany", a rather gorgeous blue Duck wearing pearls, and "James Pond").

 

 

How many Ducks have numbers on them?

I think there are three.  Number 24, and my two retired Racing Ducks, #208 & #784.

 

 

Do you have a favourite duck?

No, not possible!  I couldn't possibly choose.

 

 

Where do they come from?

These Quackers have arrived from all over out world!  Apart from the abundance of local Aussie Ducks, many have arrived from New Zealand, Germany, UK, USA, Thailand and New Zealand?  If I've forgotten anywhere, please let me know!

 

 

Why do people send you Ducks?

Well often people like you visiting this page will be somewhere over the next few days or weeks and will see a Duck that they think would lovely in the Palace.  They just have to buy it and send it to be part of this collection!  That's it!  Believe me, it still surprises me how often a new Duck arrives out of the blue. 

 

Friends and family often give me Ducks as Birthday, Christmas and "Just 'cos " gifts.

 

 

Do you like being sent photos of Ducks?

Yes!  But I don't publish them here, I have recently created a facebook album and you can see images and contribute here.

 

 

Can I visit Duck Palace?

Unfortunately no, Duck Palace is a private collection.  That's why these photos are here for your enjoyment.

 

 

Is it true you've been on a Duck Adventure?

Yes, a few!  Below was the first Duck Experience.  Most of these images were taken onboard "Darcy" and include our guide Nel, sights of Singapore and a race with another Duck.  The second was in Windsor, UK with pics posted on fb.
