Artist One

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged.

About the dragon boat race

Cheer on our Dragon Boat teams as they make a splash to help sick kids!

Last year, over 300 participants from South East Queensland businesses took to the Brisbane River to Paddle for Kids, raising over $52,000 to help sick kids.

All funds raised go directly to the Children’s Hospital Foundation and the Australian first entertainment and distraction program, Juiced TV – the TV show made by the kids in hospital, for the kids in hospital.

The Paddle for Kids Dragon Boat regatta takes place on Saturday 16 June on the Brisbane River, alongside South Bank’s Cultural Forecourt.

Each 200 metre race sees four of our teams against going up against each other to make it in to the grand final race.

Each team is made up of 16 to 20 paddlers, over 18 years of age, who are supplied their Dragon Boat, equipment, 2 additional experienced crew members from our event partner, Dragon Boat Queensland, and a training session before the big day.

To register as a team or individual and for additional race information please contact us today.

Team heats and finals will be available closer to the event date.
