Located by the Brisbane River at Colmslie Recreation Reserve, Col Gardiner Drive, Morningside QLD. Brisbane River Dragons is one of the oldest dragon boat clubs in Queensland and one of the first to expand to include outrigger canoe paddling in a single membership. 

We are a highly competitive, yet social paddling club, which trains and competes throughout the year. At BRD you will have the opportunity to paddle at local, state, national and international competitions .... or just enjoy the wonderful sunrise or sunsets on the Brisbane River as you paddle under the Gateway Bridge. 

We provide members with the opportunity to train in a range of watercraft types from OC6, OC3 and OC2 outrigger canoes, kayaks, and of course, dragon boats. Many of our members also enjoy single craft paddling and we have capacity for storage in our newly build single craft shelter.


Our training sessions are tailored for all level of paddlers, social or highly competitive, and our competition goals are pursued with annual campaigns at the State, National and World Championship levels.


BRD maintains highly qualified coaching teams in both dragon boat and outrigger canoe disciplines to ensure maximum development and performance of its members.
