BSRA LIVESTREAM of the Head of the River

The BSRA Board are delighted to announce a Livestream of the 2020 BSRA Head of the River.


The 2020 season has been impacted in many ways by Covid-19 and spectators being prohibited from the venue. This has been a hard pill to swallow for the supporters that love to cheer on their girls and schools. This situation has enabled a new opportunity that the BSRA member schools have embraced.


Livestreaming by Soutar Productions through the BSRA website will enable the supporters at home to share in the efforts of the rowers and the experience of the day.


The BSRA member schools hope you enjoy this unique and special opportunity streaming live to you from the Queensland State Rowing Centre at Wyaralong Dam, Allenview.

BSRA Rowing season suspended

The BSRA Board has made the decision to SUSPEND the 2020 BSRA rowing season until further notice.

The corona virus impact over the past few weeks has taken us on a whirlwind and rowing is not immune to the effects.

The Board are meeting to discuss the options in mid-May and an update will be posted here.

The school rowing coordinators and relevant stakeholders are considering the options for a condensed rowing season. We hope to provide some level of competition for a great rowing experience.

Rowing History
Greetings BSRA community
I am writing to introduce you to my second book on rowing, following my biography of Peter Antonie in 2007. This new book will be the first in a set of two volumes having the generic title Looking Back, Rating High. In 300,000 words and with some 200 illustrations, the books will provide a comprehensive and definitive history of our sport. Volume One is being released in September and is sub-titled From Early Settlement to pre-War Success 1770–1939. The brochure provides more details.
