Welcome to Illawarra Archers


club shoot

We are a non-profit sporting club who practice the sport of target archery at our range in the foothills of Mt. Keira. We are one of the largest archery clubs in NSW with over 200 members. We practice target, field, and indoor archery, and our members use various bow types.

We are affiliated with the Archery Society of NSW and in turn with Archery Australia and World Archery. This allows our members to enjoy the challenge and comraderie of shooting tournaments throughout the country.

Our members range from Australian Representative level to the social weekend archer, families and individuals – archery is a sport for all!

Our club has some of the best facilities available to archers in Australia with the club facilities being available to members 7 days a week, and the depth of experience within the club is of great benefit to newer archers and those wishing to advance their skills.

We hold club shoots every Saturday and also host several tournaments throughout the year. Interested in archery?? Try one of our Beginner Classes and get involved.

Who can shoot at our Club?

Club members must register on line before attending the club. (If this is not possible, there is an attendance book in the clubhouse)

As well as current Shooting Members of our Club, visiting members of Archery Australia Affiliated Clubs, or members of other Archery Alliance clubs (ABA / 3DAAA / TAA) may shoot with us, upon payment of the range fee.

Twilight Season Has Arrived - Oct 5

Finally, Twilight Competition Season has returned. For any of our newer members, during daylight savings, we have a club competition shoot Thursdays, with first arrows flying at 6:00pm. We aim to be a bit more casual than the Saturday competitions. Everyone shoots the same round in a single division. We haven’t seen the calendar yet, but the first few weeks will generally be 60 arrows or less, as the light is still a bit restrictive. So, bring your gear and be ready for our ‘surprise’ opening round this Thursday evening (Oct 5).
