This is our 8th Annual Dragon Boat Festival will be held on the stunning Cockle Bay, Darling Harbour right in the heart of Sydney on Saturday, 24th October 2015.

Dragons Abreast Australia is a registered, not for profit charity, who receives no government funding nor has any major sponsors and raises breast cancer awareness through the sport of dragon boating.  This Festival is our biggest annual fundraiser and incorporates Corporate, Social, Hospital and Dragons Abreast categories.  Training is provided prior to the Festival.

Dragon boating is a great team building exercise and our Festival has proved over the past 7 years to be a terrific event for teams who continue to participate and the new teams who come on board each year.  Dragon boating is the fastest growing team water sport in the World, come and see what all the fuss is about!
