Dragons Abreast Gippsland (Waratahs) was formed 4 years ago 

  • To raise awareness of the incidence of Breast Cancer.
  • To provide facilities for the support of people during, and after, treatment for Breast Cancer.
  • To promote the value of Exercise in the rehabilitation after Breast Cancer surgery.
  • To improve and promote physical and mental wellbeing by participating in the sport of Dragon Boat Racing

Since then , we have branched out further into the community, and have members, male and female , who  are interested in the sport. Our membership at present is about 40.

We have two main locations for our dragon boats as our geographical area is so large. We have two 20s  boats located at Bairnsdale and a 10s boat and a 20s boat located at Sale. Both are in the Gippsland Lakes  region of East Gippsland, Victoria. 


Training Times

Training takes place at Bairnsdale every Sunday at 9.30am at Howitt park on the Mitchell River.

Training in Sale is every Saturday at 10.00am on Lake Gutheridge, in the heart of Sale.
