Come down to Docklands and have a go at Dragon Boat Racing with the Melbourne Flames. You can try this unique team sport in a safe and supportive environment.

Have you heard of dragon boating? It’s one of Australia's fastest growing water sports. With a focus on fitness, teamwork, fun and making lifelong friends, dragon boating is a unique experience that is sure to get your heart racing! And yes, the boats do look like dragons.

On September 3rd we will be hosting a special come and try session. Whether you are an experienced paddler, never paddled before or never played any sport you are most welcome.

Feel the thrill by watching this short video and then come and join us to experience it yourself!

We will be on the water at 11:00 am so please arrive between 10:30am and 10:45am for registration, a safety drill and a warm welcome. We will be paddling regardless of weather, a little bit of rain won't hurt when you are already going to get a little wet.

The focus of the water session is on developing an understanding of dragon boating by giving it a go, and having fun! We will spend about an hour paddling on the water and afterwards some food.

We provide paddles and life jackets but you will need to: wear old clothes or active wear that you don't mind getting wet, extra thermals or layers of clothes, old trainers/paddling boots/flip flops, bring a drink bottle, cap/hat, sunscreen, towel and toiletries, and a change of warm and dry clothes. We have good shower facilities with hot water.

Getting there by car: Drive to the Docklands end of Collins or Bourke Street, and follow the road around after The Library at the Dock. We are on the right hand side in the new building next to the Library. You can park in the street or in the nearby Woolworths.

Getting there on foot or by bike: Follow the paths alongside Collins and Bourke St towards docklands, past the Library at the Dock. We are now located in new building next to the Library at the Dock.

Lastly by Tram - take the #11 or #48 to Docklands and walk past the Library at the Dock. We are in the new Community Hub building next to the Library.

We are looking forward to paddling with you!
