As the highest dragon boat event in Australia (approximately 1,600 metres above sea level), the Falls Creek Dragon Boat Regatta has been held at Rocky Valley lake for over a decade now, bringing together visitors, residents and dragon boat enthusiasts from all over to compete and join in the festivities.
The grassy banks of Rocky Valley Lake are a beautiful place to spend the day with the family and soak in the excitement of the races. On the foreshore there will be food and drinks available, plus on Saturday night the action continues with post-race dinners and parties throughout the village.
If you have not paddled in a dragon boat before there is no need to worry as a range of safety and skills training sessions will ensure you are ready to race. The Victorian Dragon Boat Association provide experienced helms and instructors, they have paddles, boats and buoyancy vests. If you would like to join a recreational team please email.
