Welcome to Duck!

Duck is a not-for-profit association set up to provide Public Liability and other insurance policies for our performer and artist members. We’ve been going since 1998 with the goal of providing the best rates we can for all our members, no matter how long you’ve been with us. (No ‘introductory’ rates that disappear later.) We now have over 17,000 members who use Duck each year to help with their insurance needs.

In the spirit of reconciliation, Duck for Cover acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea, and community. We pay our respect to their elders past and present and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today.
