Welcome to the Hervey bay Archers Website
Hervey Bay Archery Club
The club is set in a quaint rural setting, surrounded by Eucalypt and Banksia forest. Our club consists of 4 ranges, one that is used for the Beginners Course and practice, and another that is used for our weekend competitions and has recently had a 6m by 24 metre long cover erected to provide shade during those hot summer months. We also have a clout range, as well as a 12 target FITA accredited field target range containing a multitude of different target lengths, and target sizes, which meanders through the surrounding bushland.
We are a family orientated, and friendly club that aims to assist in the evolution of beginner archers into confident, able archers with the help of our experienced members, and qualified level 1 through to level 3 instructors. We have an onsite canteen that provides snacks and drinks, and lunch on full day shoots, as well as an equipment room for the repair and up keep of both our club bows, and members bows.
We, as a Club, are affiliated with and a member of
Archery Australia as well as a member of SQAS (South Queensland Archery Society) and a member of Archery Queensland.
