Dragon Boat Takes To The Darling River!

Locals and visitors had the rare chance to experience dragon boating on the Darling River during the Easter festival. Peter Thomas organised the event, bringing in a full sized dragon boat with instructors Bill and Beth Thomas on hand to give participants a short lesson in rowing skills. Thirty four people took up the opportunity to have a go and Peter hopes it is an activity he can run on a regular basis if there is enough demand.

“We’ll be holding a community meeting in a couple of weeks to see if there is strong interest to do it on a regular basis. The dragon boat lives in Bourke and we see it as a community resource we’d like to share,” he says.
