The Melbourne Argonauts is Australia’s first gay and lesbian rowing club and one of only a handful of independent GLBTI rowing clubs in the world.

We aim to create a friendly inclusive environment for those who want to row socially or competitively. We are a club where people meet, connect and grow in a nurturing and positive environment. We value diversity, fun, openness, inclusiveness and an active lifestyle.

We are honoured that our patron is The Hon Michael Kirby AC CMG, former High Court judge and well-known human rights activist.
