Dragon Boat

Dragon Boat Racing is a big event in the Jacaranda Week. Teams come from all over Northern N.S.W to compete on the wide reaches of the Clarence River. The boats are beautiful objects with the dragon face prow, drum and dragon tail stern.

This is a Watery Wednesday Post. Click here for more watery scenes on our planet.


  1. I bet the scene is beautiful when many dragon boats are out on the river.
