One of the most popular events at Falls Creek over Summer is the annual Mile High Dragon Boat Championships. As the highest dragon boat event in Australia (approximately 1600 metres above sea level), this event has been held at Rocky Valley lake for over a decade now, bringing together visitors, residents and dragon boat enthusiasts from all over to compete and join in the festivities.

In what is traditionally a very social weekend, there is lots of friendly rivalry and some fierce competition as the teams battle it out dragon head to dragon head. Of course, one of the most anticipated rivalries is the Mountain Challenge when Falls Creek takes on teams from other alpine resorts to see who can take home the coveted Mountain Challenge trophy.

For guests this is a fantastic weekend to spend at Falls Creek. The grassy banks of Rocky Valley Lake are a beautiful place to spend the day with the family and soak in the excitement of the races. On the foreshore there are also food and drinks available, plus on Saturday night the action continues with post-race dinners and parties throughout the village.

Teams of up to 20 can register for a variety of categories and there are always opportunity for individuals to join an existing team. If you haven’t paddled in a dragon boat before there is no need to worry as a range of safety and skills training sessions will ensure you are ready to race! The Victorian Dragon Boat Association provide experienced helms and instructors, we have paddles, boats and buoyancy vests.

After an awards ceremony on the foreshore, it’s then time to head back to the village for the official Dragon Boat After Party. >
