DRAGONS is an ambitious simulation program well-underway at the University of Melbourne aiming to describe the formation of the first galaxies and the co-evolution of the inter-galactic medium during the epoch of reionization.  I will describe how DRAGONS will use an integrated suite of state-of-the-art hydro-dynamic, N-body and semi-analytic models of galaxy formation to achieve this goal and present the program's ongoing progress.
