Can I do this event if I don't have a licence?

People in good standing of at least 11 years of age are able to shoot under special supervision. You will need to provide an official Photo ID (driver licence, passport, school/university ID,…) and sign a statutory declaration that you are not an excluded person under Queensland law.

What do I need to bring with me?

Every person on the range must wear appropriate clothing; As a minimum:

  • Fully enclosed shoes – no thongs, sandals, or partially enclosed shoes e.g. Crocs.
  • A shirt/top that covers the upper torso e.g. T-shirt, ‘Polo’ shirt, no singlets or sleeveless shirts.
  • No more than one piece (or 50%) of camouflage clothing on the upper body or legs.
  • No clothing or items that may cause alarm can be worn e.g. military ‘Flak’ jackets, military-style webbing, or combat vests, etc.

All people attending the range must wear all personal protective equipment as directed, including wearing fully enclosed shoes and hearing protection.

Earplugs for hearing protection are provided as part of the Try Shooting Packages and are suitable for most people. If you have sensitive hearing or are uncomfortable in noisy environments then you should bring your own preferred hearing protection; such as earmuffs. Alternatively, we have a selection of earmuffs for sale ranging from $20.00 to $150.00.(Please note that noise-cancelling headphones or earbuds designed for use when listening to music do not meet Australian standards for hearing protection and therefore can not be used as hearing protection at the range.)

Does the Range have an Alcohol Policy?

No alcohol or drugs are to be consumed or administered immediately before or while participating in any club shooting activities. The Club has a zero-tolerance approach to possession and use of alcohol and/or drugs.  Having physical possession or use of a weapon while under the influence of alcohol or a drug is an offence under the Weapons Act 1990 (Qld).

What is included?

Your fee includes the use of the club firearms, range fee, ammunition, hearing protection, targets, and coaching by an experienced club instructor.

I want to book a group with more than 2 people in it?
