We are a Non-Profit Organisation, run by a committee of volunteers who have practiced archery at International, National and State level. Committee members are available at the range on weekends. We are a FITA Club and practice Target, Field and Clout archery. We occasionally shoot 3D coupled with a Field shoot. The range is open 365 days to members from Sunrise to Sunset. Leagues are run every weekend, as well on 2nd and 4th Thursdays. It’s open to our club members, associate members and visitors from other clubs. League winners are presented Cash Prizes plus a Gift Voucher from our main sponsor Abbey Archery.
Northern Archers also offer coaching classes in Recurve and Compound style archery. If your keen to learn the sport or are a practicing archer, and would like to sign up with one of the largest FITA clubs in Australia, get in touch.
