Learn To Row

Are you interested in Learning to Row?

Mildura Rowing Club welcomes all to our Club. Whether you are an experienced rower, or never rowed before.

If you have never sat in a rowing boat before, then we will endeavour to give you the skills and training necessary to ensure you can enjoy the exhilarating experience of rowing on the beautiful Murray River, hopefully as a future member of Mildura Rowing Club. You can enjoy rowing simply to keep fit, to partake as a social rower singularly or in a crew, or to even compete at regattas attended by the Club.

Don't worry about a membership subscription, just yet. If you have never rowed before and would like to give it a 'no obligation' try, then fill out our Registration of Interest form above. A member of the Club will then contact you within a few days.

The Club regularly meets on Sunday mornings and rowing takes place at other times during the week.

The only criteria we place on beginner rowers is that you are able to swim at least 25 metres. If under 18 years, signed permission of a parent/guardian is required.
