    Great fun and just the right amount of challenging
    Went with friends for a 19th and we all had a ball! Great atmosphere, great fun and wonderfully run. Eli was our coach and we absolutely loved her! Snacks/drinks were very cheap. Was great for team bonding or would be wonderful for a date! I'm already planning a date night with my boyfriend for next month! Our coach did a great job accomodation different levels of skill and strength to make it just the right amount of challenging and fun fro everyone. All together, a wonderful time

    Smashing experience!
    Two of us went too break on a Saturday evening and throughly enjoyed every minute. Fun and therapeutic! Great for mates or dates and a perfect way to spend a weekend evening. Liarna was a great host and explained everything very well. She was also so kind to stay behind for us as we were late. Definitely coming back and trying the Axxe throwing next time. Thaaaanks! :) :)

    Axxellent time
    I've been to a few axe throwing places and this was a great experience. Liana coached us on the scoring system and we had plenty of time to play a game and try different throwing techniques at the end. The lanes are wide and the equipment was in good condition. Definitely will go again the next time I'm in Canberra.

    Team bonding with a difference
    Tyler and Max made sure our work group were able to combine friendly competition with a relaxed atmosphere. While not all of us mastered axe throwing, we all had fun. Even Tyler and Max were cheering our colleagues during our grand finale event

    A fantastic family experience!
    Absolutely excellent family experience that our teenage boys really enjoyed. We didn't really know what to expect but we were very impressed with how organised, safe and professional the whole thing was. We were looked after by Vik who made the experience so much fun with her excellent knowledge and fun way of teaching the axe throwing. As complete novices when we entered we left after having a great afternoon and learning a new skill. Highly recommended as an excellent activity with family, friends or work colleagues.

    Too much fun!
    We had a great time, it was absolutely amazing! We had a group of 9 people who were eager to learn and play something fun, Tyler took care of us while we were there and made the experience even more fun! Would surely come again as it’s such a fun activity. Great job @TeamAxxe! Thanks for a great time! 😄

    Highly recommend the Axe Throwing/Break Room combo for first timers!
    We went to Axxe last night for 2 of us to do the Axe Room/Breaker Combo. The booking process was straightforward - Communication was fantastic. Mark was responsive and able to more than accommodate my queries in a quick and friendly manner. As soon as we got there we were greeted by two smiling staff behind the counter - one of which was our Coach Max. We quickly signed the waiver and went straight over to the Axe Throwing lanes to get started. Max ran us through the rules and was enthusiastic, engaged and funny. He stayed with us to keep score and offer tips and answer any questions we had throughout our time on the lanes. Then once we were done we were changed into safety gear, Max briefed on the break room rules, and left with crates of stuff to smash! We both had so much fun, left with big smiles on our faces, and already planning our next visit. Thank you Mark, Max and Axxe - See you again soon!

    Axe throwing
    Had so much fun on the couples night! Annie ran out axe throwing and she was so friendly and lovely! She let us have lots of practice throws and helped us get the technique down! Also thank you Mark for being so understanding when we had to change our booking due to illness!

Great time, lots of fun. The host was great and helpful and even gave us an extra round. Not too expensive and not too difficult!

Went with the girlfriends for a birthday party. The staff were great, showed how to do it safely and got some tips on hitting the bullseye. Plenty of room and easy to get to. Was a great couple of hours.

We had such a fun time and would love to do this again. Mark went out of his way to organise a time to suit our group. Our group had a variety of ages from early 20s to late 70s.

Went out for an social activity with the 4WD club, and wow......

Apart from mucking around chucking axes at trees, I had never done this so it was a bit daunting.

My sport of choice is archery, so I naively thought it would be trivial. How wrong I was - Everything was different to archery - apart from throwing a projectile down range at a target. While Archery is about breathing, Axe throwing seemed to be about a whole body exercise that relies on focus on the target and releasing while stepping forward.

Our host Ash coached us all and helped me go from reliably missing, to being able to hold my own with 3 and above :-) It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience, in safe and well controlled surroundings. I didn't come last, but reasonably I also didn't come first.

I am totally going to do this again :-).

If you are concerned about it - give it a go - the lanes are well protected from each other, and even if the axe bounces, it doesn't shoot past your ear (unlike my indoor arrows have..... :-) ).
