Owner description: 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.

My partner shot 3 different guns. Ive never seen him so happy in his life. Prices weren't too bad. Went late at night so there wasnt a huge line. Everyone we interacted with was great and informative.

The men running this Academy are very friendly and talked for nearly an hour explaining about the firearms and what they can do. They showed us , in booklets the types, styles, sizes and methods for using each of the guns. Unfortunately as a family we all wanted to have a go but it would have cost us more than a nights accommodation. We decided that next year we will put money aside and return and have ago. My son was fascinated with the Magnum and Desert Eagle guns while I was more interested in smaller firearms
