Sydney Harbour Challenge presented by Hawaiian Airlines is Australia's most prestigious six man Outrigger Canoe Race, attracting over 800 competitors. As Australia’s flagship long-distance outrigger canoe event, it is fast becoming one of the more popular outrigger canoe races on the international calendar, with up to 40 countries invited.
This competitive water sport event promises a terrific experience for spectators and competitors, by adding a splash of colour and excitement and exotic Hawaiian song and dance to the vibrant hub of Manly.
Racing starts from Manly Wharf, across Sydney Heads and into the Sydney Harbour, passing iconic landmarks such as Taronga Zoo, Sydney Harbour Bridge, Sydney Opera House and Luna Park before returning to Manly Wharf.
