Welcome to Melbourne’s brand new Dragons Abreast Club – Dragons Abreast Melbourne Pink Phoenix! With 15+ years of experience between our Sweeps, you’ll be in safe and caring hands when you come and try dragon boating with us!
We welcome all breast cancer survivors, and their special supporters, to come and experience the magic of dragon boating. We promise we’ll make you laugh a lot!
Never tried dragon boating before? Guess what, none of us had either before we decided to have a try! And we haven’t regretted it for a second! Now, we can’t imagine life without it.
The wonderful supportive environment of being surrounded by those who’ve previously been diagnosed with breast cancer, moving forward together (literally!) towards a healthy new life full of friendship and adventure. And a bit of exercise on the side doesn’t go astray either!
Our members are from all over greater Melbourne. We’re based in Docklands near the city, so we get fantastic views while we’re on the water!
We paddle for an hour once or twice weekly, then enjoy going out together for a coffee or dinner in Docklands afterwards – perfect!
During regatta season (race days), we love travelling to different locations for some racing fun! And we love catching up with all our fellow Dragons Abreast club dragon boaters in towns around Victoria and Australia. We’ve made life-long friends everywhere!
Please come and try dragon boating with us anytime, we’d love to meet you!!!
