Archery Brisbane | Where can kids learn archery? (Safely!)

Archery Brisbane – it’s not just the stuff of Hunger Games cosplay! We’ve found the best targets (sorry) for your little Katniss Everdeen!

Archery Brisbane – right on target!

Firstly, I’m sorry about the puns. I’ll try not to fire anymore at you. Sorry again.

Archery is a sport that’s becoming more and more accessible thanks to a growing interest associated with The Hunger Games, a recognition that different kids like different sports and big events like the Commonwealth Games.

Archery provides a great alternative to ‘mainstream’ team sports. It gets kids outdoors, promotes great skills like communication and focus, and it looks really, REALLY cool.

Where can my child find an archery Brisbane class?

Mount Petrie Bowmen

Where: Belmont Shooting Complex, 1485 Old Cleveland Rd, Belmont Phone:
Phone: 0499 225 845

This is one of the oldest archery establishments in Brisbane with a stellar reputation to match. In terms of the twin demands of strength and concentration, Mount Petrie Bowmen have an age minimum of about ten for punters. This is for very obvious safety reasons.

They have a range of ‘Come and Try’ courses that you can sign up to or you can sometimes have a casual turn of a weekend. Get in contact to find out more details.

Centenary Archers Club

Where: 427 Wacol Station Road, Sumner

Centenary Archers Club is an archery Brisbane club that caters to children aged 8 and over. They must be able to hold the weighted string in their hand for about 20 seconds in order to adhere to the safety requirements. Again, this is for very obvious reasons and they appreciate parental cooperation and supervision.

Archery is available on Saturdays from about 1pm.

Samford Valley Target Archers

Where: 2204 Mt Samson Road, Samford Valley
Email: samfordvalleytargetarchers@gmail.com

Again, the minimum punter age at Samford Valley Target Archers is children no younger than ten. This is a club steeped in tradition and history and you’ll instantly be welcomed. They run Saturday morning beginners courses for a ‘come and try’ that go from around 7.30 to about 11.30.

What about Backyard Archery Targets for Practice?

Archery for kids in Brisbane

Great idea! Get in some practice with archery before you let them loose.

We love therange of targets, bows and quills for a great low price here!

Archery Brisbane – may the odds be ever in your favour!

Happy shooting!

  1. Cub scouts! Join up and do archery, camping, canoeing, rock climbing, buggying. All sorts of activities and he can choose the one he likes and get his (for example) archery badge or canoe badge. Great way for him to see what he likes before he’s ten and reaches the new minimum age for archery clubs 😁

  2. Hello there, I am looking for a place where my 7 year old grandson can learn archery. He lives in Wishart. Would really appreciate some information, as he is very keen to learn.
    best wishes
