Dragon Boating - More than a sport, a Tradition


Sydney Lunar Festival - Dragon Boat Races

Sydney Lunar Festival - Dragon Boat Races

Date : Saturday 01 February 2020 to Sunday 02 February 2020

Cheer on thousands of paddlers as they churn through the waters of Cockle Bay at the biggest Dragon Boat races in the southern hemisphere.

It all begins with a ceremonial blessing of the waters by Taoist monks and an eye dotting ceremony, said to awaken the dragons. Then these 12 metre dragon-headed vessels race to the beat of a drum.

A cultural institution in China for more than 2,000 years, Dragon Boat racing is now an international sport and one of the most anticipated events of Sydney Lunar Festival.
