A giant rubber duck has swum into Sydney to mark the opening of The Sydney Festival.

The duck, designed by Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman, is five storeys high and will be nesting in Darling Harbour until 23rd January.

Pyjama-clad performers in floating bathtubs accompanied the plus-sized duck and singers, dancers, acrobats and a brass band helped welcome it, along with 40 saxophonists playing a ‘quackophony’.
