1996 Australian University Championships—
Lake Burley Griffin Canberra ACT

These were the first Championships held as part of the Australian University Games (AUG). Rowing had previously had an annual regatta seperate from the University Games. The rowing was held over the 1800 metre course in Canberra. The AUG had their opening ceremony on 29th September with heats on Wednesday, repechages and semi final on Thursday and finals on Friday.
