About Us

Rowing is one of Australia’s oldest and most successful sports, recognised as much for its tradition and appeal to athletes of all ages as for its fantastic health benefits. Rowing is a cornerstone Olympic sport and Australian rowing has a long and proud history of success, consistently returning multiple medals at major international competitions.

Rowing is a part of Australia’s national sporting and cultural heritage, with international success dating back to 1867 when Edward “Ned” Trickett won Australia’s first ever sporting World Championship. Rowing continues to play an important part in Australia’s sporting culture, providing safe, fun and healthy opportunities for Australians of all ages and abilities to participate in a sport that provides unparalleled health benefits.

In October 2023, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and World Rowing announced the addition of Beach Sprint Rowing to the Olympic program for the 2028 Olympic Games. This inclusion of the emerging discipline marks a significant milestone in the history of rowing. The inclusion of Coastal Rowing at the 2028 Olympics presents an exciting opportunity to grow the nation’s elite Coastal Rowing program.
