Dragon boating is a popular international sport, with over 35 countries competing. It is the fastest growing water sport in Australia, both for individuals, and private and corporate teams.
The ancient sport of dragon boat racing dates back to 332 BCE in China. Chinese tradition commemorates the death of Qu Yuan each year at the dragon boat festival, when respect is paid to the dragon, ruler of the water.
Dragon Boating WA is bringing this ancient sport to the Burswood Peninsula for the Perth Chung Wah Cultural Festival so you can see some of Western Australia’s top competitors in action.
