Dragons Abreast Festival 2018

Dragons Abreast Australia is once again presenting their most vibrant event of the year.

The Dragons Abreast Festival!

Dragons Abreast Australia encourages 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.

On 20 October 2018, hundreds of passionate people, of all ages, gender and fitness levels, will race 12 metre long dragon boats for a memorable day of fun and fundraising in Sydney, beautiful Darling Harbour, and this is your chance to join in the fun.

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

DAA receives no government funding and relies solely on donations. 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.

There is lots happening on the day, including the Chinese Youth League Lion Dancers, the moving “Flowers on the Water” Ceremony and other fun activities besides the awesome dragon boat racing!

For more information and to find out how you can help really make a difference to the lives of breast cancer survivors, please contact Angie O’Reilly, Festival Project Manager on or 0434 906 208.
