EDEN Field Archers is the oldest continuously operating field archery Club in South Australia.
Regular Club competition is held every Saturday; commencing (usually) at 1.30 pm. (Members have access seven days a week.)
The Club has a relaxed and family-friendly atmosphere, with over 100 members.
The field course comprises 14 permanent butts, with extra butts used for target rounds, coaching and practice.
The venue is a bushland setting, with the course straddling Viaduct Creek. Koalas are regular visitors to the eucalypts in the valley, which abounds with a variety of birdlife.
The Club appreciates the work of the Friends of Shepherds Hill Recreation Park, which is a volunteer group helping to restore the greybox grassy woodland.
The Club is aligned with World Archery, being affiliated through Archery Australia and ARCHERY South Australia.
Tournaments are hosted by EDEN for ARCHERY SA from time to time and are open to all affiliated (& Alliance - 3DAAA/ABA/TAA) Clubs and their members.
Eden has played host to a variety of events including the field event of the National Archery Championships in 1954 as well as the inaugural Archery Australia Junior National Championships in 1978. It has also hosted events for the Australian Masters Games in 1989, 1999, 2005, 2007, 2011, 2015, 2019 and the World Police and Fire Games, 2007.
On days of extreme fire danger issued by the CFS, DEW may close some (or all) national parks or reserves in the interest of public safety. Parks and reserves may also be closed because of a bushfire or because of a prescribed burn or other fire management works (such as slashing).
To see whether the Shepherds Hill Recreation Park Park is closed, its pays to CHECK HERE first, to avoid disappointment.
