Duke's Day 2024 - 11 to 13 January 2024

Duke’s Day 2024 in Freshwater

Beaches peeps are invited to Duke’s Day 2024 in Freshwater – a weekend celebrating Duke Kahanamoku!

Duke Kahanamoku was an Olympic swimming gold medallist, Hawaiian icon, Waterman and the father of modern surfing. He popularised the sport of surfing in Australia with historic surfing demonstrations during the summer of 1914-1915. We’re honouring his legacy and love for the ocean environment.

This year, we have the incredible Moses Goods, one of Hawai‘i’s most prominent theatre artists and a star in the ‘Waterman’ documentary, joining us.

Events run from 11 January to 13 January, with yarning sessions, beach clean ups, Waterman movie screenings and more.

Check out the full schedule here: 2024 – Duke’s Day (dukesday.com).

We’re kicking it off with an Aloha Cocktail Party – we hope you can make it!
