This Rowing Australia event will run from Monday, March 28 to Sunday, April 3 with support from Strathbogie Shire Council and Greater Shepparton City Council.
The location change is due to the Sydney International Regatta Centre (SIRC) being unable to host the ARC due to water contamination issues occurring because of the recent floods. Read RA’s statement published 13 March here.
Strathbogie Shire Council Acting Mayor Cr Paul Murray said we were happy to welcome the rowers with open arms at Council’s premiere rowing facility the Nagambie Lakes Regatta Centre.
“The Nagambie Lakes Regatta Centre is a state and national rowing facility that attracts athletes, coaches and clubs to race the two-kilometre course at esteemed regattas,” Cr Murray said.
“This idyllic location is favoured by competitors and spectators alike for the course layout, water quality and reliability.
“Lake Nagambie was proud to host the Australian Olympic Rowing Team in 2021 to train and prepare for the Tokyo Olympics and boasts many local connections to rowing champions including Lucy Stephan, Pat McNamara, Neville Howell OAM and Neil Lodding.”
Acting Mayor Cr Murray said Council understood there were many people seeking accommodation options for the duration of the event.
“We encourage visitors explore accommodation options in surrounding areas such as Euroa, Shepparton, Benalla, Bendigo, Seymour, Heathcote, Elmore, Rochester, Kyabram, Numurkah, Kilmore and Echuca,” Cr Murray said.
“Council is also exploring some other innovative options regarding accommodation and more information about this will be provided soon.
“We are determined to make this the best ARC you have seen.”
Spectator tickets for the 2022 ARC in Nagambie can still be purchased via Ticketmaster.
