Dragons Abreast Australia

Dragons Abreast logoDragons Abreast Australia commenced in 1998 and is a national charity comprised of breast cancer survivors (and some very special supporters) of various ages from a great variety of backgrounds, athletic abilities and interests. 

After treatment for breast cancer many survivors ask ‘what’s next?’

Dragons Abreast provides that answer by encouraging them to join and paddle. Paddling has been medically proven to improve health both physically and emotionally. Dragons Abreast has over 30 groups around Australia who paddle regularly and new members are always welcome.  


Awareness, Participation, Inclusiveness


Encourage wellness, fitness, fun and camaraderie for breast cancer survivors through the sport of dragon boating and promote breast cancer awareness throughout our community.


Dragons Abreast is a leader in the movement for people affected by breast cancer; spreading awareness, empowering individuals, and educating on the benefits of an active lifestyle after diagnosis.
