Yarra River – Henley Course Melbourne
Saturday 25th February 2023

The Course, The Tactics, The Challenge

The Australian Henley Regatta is a prominent eminence on the Australian rowing landscape. With a rich rowing history, the regatta is conducted over one mile on the Yarra River, Melbourne.

Rowers compete for Challenge Cups, some of which are among the oldest and most valuable perpetual trophies, dating back to 1860, for rowing in Australia.

ROWING at the Australian Henley is a two-lane knock-out format through three bridges and around two bends.

RACING at the Australian Henley requires skill, speed and match racing tactics to conquer the "Henley Mile".

WINNING at the Australian Henley is priceless.

We are delighted to confirm that the regatta is officially on again! Once again, we will convene on the banks of the Yarra River on Saturday 25 February to compete, to spectate and to enjoy the magnificent sport of rowing.

As per tradition, the Henley Marquee will be the venue where Henley subscribers can gather in comfort to enjoy a light repast.

Racing will be fast and furious and we look forward to an excellent day of competition.
