ANA Centenary 1920 - 2020

In 1920 a group of rowers from different clubs became disgruntled with "imported" rowers, that is from Britain and Europe, coming in and taking all the places in the top crews. These rowers formed a new club which was affiliated with the Australian Natives Association (ANA) Aquatic Club.


In 2020 ANA Rowing Club celebrates its centenary with a series of events to reconnect with past members. Monthly decade by decade reunions will be held at the clubrooms starting on 14 June for members from the 1960’s and prior. 19 July - 1970s. 9 August - 1980s. 20 September - 1990s. 11 October - 2000s onwards.

A grand social row and breakfast is planned for 1 November 2020 and a formal dinner on 7th November 2020. Keep watching this site for details and spread the word to former members you are in contact with.

We have created a Facebook page to promote these events, publish photos and invite anyone with stories or memorabilia to share them with us -
