Save the Date! Dragons Abreast Festival 2018

Dragons Abreast Australia is once again presenting the most vibrant event of October – The Dragons Abreast Festival!

It’s hundreds of passionate people, of all ages, gender and fitness levels, racing 12 metre long dragon boats for a memorable day of fun and fundraising.

The teams are made up of people from businesses, hospitals, schools, neighbourhoods, families and friends – all walks of life and people just like you who know that we can make a positive difference in the lives of breast cancer survivors.

Dragons Abreast Australia strives to encourage wellness, fitness, fun and camaraderie for breast cancer survivors through the sport of dragon boating. Now in our twentieth year, we have helped thousands of Australians thrive in their lives after breast cancer treatment.

Funds raised from the Festival benefit the programs of Dragons Abreast Australia.

Come and join in the fun and friendly rivalry of the Festival, no experience needed, just a passion to support Dragons Abreast Australia and breast cancer survivors.

Registrations open on 15 April and the big day is Saturday 20 October, Cockle Bay, Darling Harbour.

For more information, please contact Angie O'Reilly, Festival Project Manager on or 0434 906 208.
