Brave Hearts Dragon Boat Club Albury Wodonga is the longest running dragon boat club on the border.  Our club has a rich history, with grass roots as a cancer survivors project for our parent body Brave Hearts on the Murray Inc, we have now grown to become even more. You do not have to be a cancer survivor to belong to our club.

Our club offers sessions for members wanting to paddle socially, for fitness or to compete.  We regularly attend the Dragon Boat Victoria regattas throughout the season, and have paddlers that travel abroad to compete with composite teams…. even the Australian Auroras!
