About Dragon Boat ACT
Here at Dragon Boat ACT, it’s about immersing yourself into a culture of community, commitment and determination! With 20 paddlers to a boat, it’s not the fittest or strongest team that succeeds on the water - it’s the team that works as a single force.
Dragon Boat ACT (DBACT) is the governing body of the sport of dragon boating in the Australian Capital Territory (ACT).
The sport was introduced to Canberra in 1990 by a few individuals keen on developing the sport and culture of dragon boats. Since its introduction to the community, Dragon Boating has become a successful sport in Canberra, enjoyed by all ages!
DBACT operates from Lotus Bay on Lake Burley Griffin with over 600 members across seven sports teams and three school teams. DBACT is proud to support and promote a sport that allows members age 12 and up to participate in local, interstate and international events.
DBACT particularly welcomes community teams to participate at our corporate regattas. Check the calendar for Corporate Regatta days.
