Welcome to the Victorian Dragon Boat Association
The Victorian Dragon Boat Association Inc. (which also trades as Dragon Boats Victoria) welcomes you to its website. We are the governing body for the fantastic sport known as Dragon Boat Racing in Victoria.
We run regular racing events, and have many diverse teams paddling in Victoria. Dragon boating is a sport that captivates its participants. It is also an event that showcases the preparedness of Australians to accept and enjoy a cultural activity that has its roots in ancient China and celebrates the many unique aspects of Chinese culture. Due to the nature of a team involving a large amount of people (22+!) its a sport with that involves many people of all ages and backgrounds.
Our premier event is the Melbourne International Dragon Boat Festival, an event we have held annually since 1985, which this year sees a return to the fantastic Yarra River.
In addition to competing in the Festival and various other events, teams train regularly on Melbourne’s magnificent waterways, enjoying some of Melbourne’s most spectacular views as they train.
