2022 Interstate Championships
Lake Nagambie, Victoria
These Championships were planned to be held at the Sydney International Rowing Centre. However, due to severe flooding in the Penrith area, the course was closed. With entries closing the next day, Rowing Australia made the following announcement on 15th March 2023.
Rowing Australia (RA) can confirm that the 2022 Australian Rowing Championships (ARC) will move to Lake Nagambie (Vic) and that the event dates will remain unchanged, with the Regatta to run from Monday 28 March – Sunday 3 April 2022.
The location change is due to the Sydney International Regatta Centre (SIRC) being unable to host the ARC due to water contamination issues occurring as a result of the recent floods.
Rowing Australia CEO Ian Robson said there had been careful and thorough consideration given to all available venues.
“I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Rowing Victoria, the Shire of Strathbogie and the Nagambie Rowing Club for stepping up to host the 2022 ARC at short notice. Other venues were considered, and we are extremely grateful to those organisations who put up their hands and offered us a lifeline at this time.
“Nagambie was ultimately selected because of a strong commitment and willingness expressed by Rowing Victoria, the Shire of Strathbogie, Nagambie Rowing Club and adjoining Local Government Authorities to contribute and make this event succeed. Crucial to the success of this event is our ability to recruit a local volunteer workforce and we have every confidence the community within Nagambie and the surrounding regions will answer our call for help.
“Our stakeholders have been extremely supportive as we work through the decision-making process. I’d particularly like to thank Destination NSW for its continued support of the ARC, and we hope to continue our strong partnership in the years to come as now look to bring the ARC back to Sydney in 2024.
“We are also extremely grateful to the rowing community, the clubs, schools, volunteers and participants, for your understanding and patience as we now focus on delivering a safe and successful ARC at Lake Nagambie, from 28 March – 3 April,” Robson concluded.

Despite the last minute move and the resulting difficulties in gaining accommodation, the regatta was a great success. The rapid generation of a pool of Victorian volunteers and the establishment of the regatta in Nagambie were a credit to all involved. This was especially the case as the course was being used for the APS Head of the River on the weekend of the start of the regatta. The bumping out of one regatta infrastructure and the bumping in of another continued well into the evening after this local regatta.
New South Wales once again won the Rowing Australia Cup with five wins in these Interstate Races including a strong win in the King's Cup. Victoria kept up their great record in Queen's Cup.
