Overview

For a real thrill and novel experience visit the Australian Shooting Academy to experience the power of firing a real gun with real bullets. Perfect your aim and learn to shoot in a super-safe, fully supervised environment. Get your adrenaline pumping by choosing from pistols, rifles, handguns and shotguns. We are suitable for all physical capabilities so no one is left out of this memorable activity. We are an indoor facility so no need to worry about the weather. No weapons experience necessary, novices and experts are welcome to shoot here but you do need ID. Although small children can't take part, youngsters from 11 years old and up who are accompanied by a parent or guardian can join in the fun. With six separate ranges and 27 shooting lanes, we are also Australia's only indoor clay target range. Feel the power when you fire real bullets, anything from .22 Calibre right up to the mighty Smith and Wesson 500 magnum, maybe even hit the mark. No experience is required, as an expert range officer will guide you through the experience adhering to the most stringent of safety procedures.

This is such a fun place to go if you want to shoot similar guns to the "Call of Duty" guns. (Except no machine guns). The instructors there are so nice and friendly and patient.

The staff were lovely, funny and helpful. The experience was superb and thrilling. One of the absolute highlights of our holiday. Its worth the money and they offered us some great deals just from walking in. It was a bucket list experience that exceeded expectations

Went there and tried out the 1911 colt. 45 and G2 Roni. It was a good experience to shoot those weapons. Would try other weapons next time.
