Dragon Boat Queensland to host 2018 Australian Championships at Lake Kawana

Posted on 07.12.2017

The Australian Dragon Boat Championships (AusChamps) is Australia’s premier Dragon Boating event in which clubs from all states compete against one another for the title of National Champion.

Thousands of competitors from around Australia will compete at the Sunshine State in the lead up to the Commonwealth Games.

The opportunity to compete at the highest level is important to the development of our sport in Australia. National titles are always tough and uncompromising and the 2018 Australian Championships promises first class racing.

Similarly, State pride is on the line as Australia’s top crews fight it out on State v State day to win the title of the best state in Australia.

As one of the biggest sporting competitions in Australia, the 2018 Australian Championships held on March 3-8, brings together a cross section of participants – paddlers, coaches, officials and volunteers from across the country.

Day 1 boasts the battle of the best paddlers each State and Territory has to offer.

Days 2 and 3 is when the club crew Premier and Junior categories race for gold.

Days 3 and 4 will see Australian club senior crew categories – Australia’s most experienced paddlers – show us how it’s done.
