What we'll do

We are a supportive community of paddlers from all ages, backgrounds and experience levels. We like to train hard and get fit while enjoying the company our team mates.

We love the thrill of dragon boat racing and invite you to come and experience it.

If you're looking to try something new. If you are ready to be fun, fit and active. Do you want to see if you've got what it takes to work hard in a team? This might just be your thing.

We love sharing our sport so come get on the water with us. Bring mate! Bring a date! (Just don't be late.)

Everyone is welcome to try paddling with us, even if you have never paddled before. Message us here or go to our webpage for more details.


You need to arrive by 10am to sign the paperwork so that you are covered under our Public Liability Insurance. We will then take you through a Safety Briefing and an Induction Session on paddling before getting out on the water. You NEED TO BE HERE for this before we can put you in the boat.

This is a FREE trial session and once you are signed up you can come along again another two times to see if you really like it before you take up a membership.

What we supply:

We will supply you with a life jacket and a paddle, and of course the boat!

What you need:

You need to wear clothes you can paddle in and don’t mind getting wet! Soft footwear like old runners are recommended for in the boat. Bring a soft, drink bottle with water, a hat, sunglasses if you wish. DRY warm clothes to change into afterwards and a towel. There are showers at the boat hub. Lockers are available in the changeroom and require a $2 coin (returnable).
