Many of our club members do compete in various regattas, when circumstances permit. We have a great depth of experience and talent to offer new paddlers the opportunity to be introduced and trained into the sport in a safe and effective manner with due consideration to each and everyone’s particular ability.
The Club, which is sponsored by the Hervey Bay Boat Club and as such is well equipped with the latest in canoe technology and safety equipment.
Anyone can be an outrigger and there are no age barriers what so ever! We encourage friendship, fellowship and respect for others within our club culture!
Come for a paddle and try outrigger canoeing with no obligation every Sunday at 7:45am at the Boat Club down by the harbour.

Dragon Boat Club
Come & Try Paddling any Sunday
Dragon boating is not a “new sport” – people have been participating in this sport for over 2,000 years. The standard crew complement of a contemporary dragon boat is around 22, comprising 20 paddlers in pairs facing toward the bow of the boat, 1 drummer or caller at the bow facing the paddlers and 1 sweep or steerer at the rear of the boat.
Dragon Boat paddling is suitable for all ages (children, men and women ages 8 to 80+) and is a great way to get fit, build upper body strength and reduce waistlines, and improve Mental Health. Every part of your body gets a good overall workout, including your smile muscles, and it beats spending hours in the gym. What a great way to make new friends, get fit and have fun all at the one time.
Just come wearing clothes you don’t mind getting wet, (it is a water sport) a hat and bring a water bottle. Everything else you need is provided, and the first three paddles are free to see if you enjoy the sport. A coach will run you through the actions before getting in the boat.
- Tuesday 5:00 pm for 5:30pm on the water
- Sunday 6:30 am for 7:00am on the water
(Please arrive 30 mins before training times to warm up etc)
Paddling times may vary during the year. Please check the Club’s facebook page for any change.
For those who have a competitive nature, our Club is one of four that competes in the “Greater Wide Bay Regatta Series” held each year. Further competition is the SE Qld Regattas held throughout the year. Members have been selected to represent Queensland and Australia at State and World Regattas.
Come and have a try!
