Rowbust Opens Factory Outlet

There is NO OTHER store like the Rowbust Outlet Store dedicated to rowers, providing rowing gear designed and made in Melbourne, Australia!

Rowbust is the home of the much loved training brands, Chicks with Sticks, Eat Sleep Row and Silver Oars. 

Many of our customers have enquired where they could buy Rowbust gear, and some of you will recall the Rowbust outlet in Collingwood in the days when Jenny and Jess Morrison, the 'Creators' of the Rowbust brand owned the business.You will remember the fabulous bargains and sales or being able to come down after training to pick up a club zootie! 

The Rowbust Factory Outlet will OPEN on Sunday the 25 November from 10 am – 2 pm. 

Plenty of training gear and samples as well as club uniforms (we will carry a limited supply of stock for our Online Club Kit customers) will be available for purchase.

For rowers coming to Melbourne for the Head of the Yarra, this will be a perfect opportunity to visit the Rowbust factory (we are only 15 minutes from Hawthorn Rowing Club). We will be happy to show you around the factory and you can see how your rowing uniforms are made right here in Melbourne!

The Factory Outlet Store will be open during the week from 9 am until 5pm and some weekends (times will be advertised on he website and via facebook and our newsletter).


Head of The Yarra 2012

The Head of the Yarra is held annually on the last Saturday of November. The 2012 Head of the Yarra is scheduled for Saturday, 24th November. Are you up for the gruelling 8.6km rowing challenge upstream from the heart of Melbourne winding up the Yarra River to Hawthorn?

Entries have now closed, with 182 crews entered for the 2012 event

We wish all rowers and Hawthorn Rowing Club a wonderful regatta with plenty of sunshine!

CAD/ CAM Project

Our new Computer Aided Design and Marking (GERBER) system is now fully integrated into our business processes, we can design & make new patterns and create automated markers – it’s been a huge learning process and has made Stephani’s job a lot more efficient! 

Stephani, our resident Designer and Garment Technician, has excelled at it, having graduated in Fashion Design from RMIT, Stephani understands garment design and construction and has already made improvements in production. We will  also be looking at offering pattern making & marker making services to designers wanting to start up their own labels or create prototypes for off shore production. We are keen to further enhance and build our manufacturing capability and strengthen our technical skills to ensure all Rowbust products are made in Melbourne Australia.

   Ride to Conquer Cancer 

The Ride to Conquer Cancer was an inaugural event for Victoria raising $6.2 million.  It was the largest single fundraising event in Australian history with the Melbourne event drawing 1,609 riders.

Rowbust was pleased to design and supply the Telstra Super Team kit for this event.  We worked closely with the Project Manager, Pina Venn  to produce the team kit. It was a great opportunity for us to showcase our latest cycling products and services and received very positive feedback from the Telstra Super Team:

"To Avril and all the Team at Rowbust,

A huge thank you for your wonderful work in the design and production of the cycling gear for our Team – Matt’s Mates at Telstra Super.  Your work, talent, creativity and utmost professionalism was greatly appreciated.  We received many complements on the design of our jersey and cycling nicks, which certainly complemented the success of the two day riding event." 

If you are looking for high quality customised cycling gear for your team or corporate event,  please contact
