  • Free Admission

Dragon boat racing is a yearly event on Wellington harbour, and the Harbour Fun Day is a lead-up race to the main NZCT Wellington Dragon Boat Festival which happens 11 & 12 March 2017.

Secondary school teams from around Wellington compete against Corporate and club teams to prepare themselves mentally and physically for the Festival three weeks later.

Racing happens in the Dragon Boats from 9am and five boats at a time will line up in the inner T at Queens Wharf (next to Ferg's kayaks), they race down the length of Frank Kitts Park to just before the entrance to the lagoon. A heart-stopping 320m which should take the teams from 1 min 15 secs to 1 min 30 secs.

There is excellent viewing anywhere on the promenade and of course, it is free to come and cheer on the teams.

In the afternoon if the weather allows, the dragon boats will race from the lagoon out to Oriental Parade and back.

Great viewing and photo opportunities from the Promenade.
