The Australian Boat Race boasts a longstanding tradition between two of Australia’s oldest Universities, Melbourne and Sydney.

In 2017, the action will take place along the Yarra River in the heart of Melbourne.

A showdown between the Universities’ best men’s and women’s college teams precedes the main races, with competition from 9am. Come enjoy a free barista-made coffee and catch the action on a big screen in front of Melbourne University Boat House on Boathouse Drive, and show your support.
