Our team was formed in June 2023 by a group of passionate and dedicated breast cancer survivors.

Our focus is on leading an active lifestyle and living a life by example. We support not only our breast cancer survivors but all the men and women in our team. There are many opportunities to participate on our boat. You can choose how much involvement you would like. For example, we train sweeps, drummers, and coaches. Plus, we always need committee members and volunteers. All survivors and supporters are welcome.

We were all beginners once and each stroke of the paddle is as important as the next. We participate in local events and travel interstate and even compete in some international events.


Pink Dragons Adelaide aka ‘The Pinkies’ is focussed on fitness and wellness with our friends. Paddling in a dragon boat is part of a world-wide movement encouraging breast cancer survivors to stay active. If you are looking for the next chapter after a diagnosis, or just looking to enhance your fitness and wellbeing why not take the next step and come and try dragon boating.

We are a very welcoming group and not only focus on fitness but also the social activities that come with dragon boating. When exercise is fun, we enjoy it more. All fitness levels welcome.


The social aspect of dragon boat racing is priceless. We offer a range of opportunities to connect and stay social. We have movie nights, dinners, regular coffee and walking catch ups, and occasional weekends away.

Meet us on the grassed area. Ready to warm up and stretch our muscles!


  • Tuesday evenings at 5:45pm for a 6pm start – September to May.

Come to one or come to all.


Pink Dragons Adelaide welcomes all new paddlers to the club who will receive 4 free ‘Come and try’ sessions. After these sessions if you're keen to take up the challenge, come along to a training session and be part of our fantastic team.
