Until the formation of the Australian Dragon Boat Federation in 1997 there had been no cohesive, unified national body managing the sport of dragon boat racing in Australia. Several earlier attempts to form a national body floundered through either lack of effective management or lack of support from the clubs and paddlers.
AusDBF is the most recent and successful body to organise dragon boat racing at the national level and is the first dragon boat body in Australia to implement a formal National Sporting Organisation structure. In 2011 AusDBF became a Non Profit Public Company Limited by Guarantee.
