45-53 PHELPS ROAD, UPPER CABOOLTURE
3DAAA (3D Archery Association of Australia) with which Caboolture & District Bowmen Inc are affiliated, promote shooting life-like 3D animal targets made from foam rubber. Targets are placed in natural settings at unmarked distances of up to 50 yards. There are 4 coloured pegs and many categories to cater for different age groups, and varying equipment levels. At a normal club shoot 40 targets would be shot, one arrow per target. In 3DAAA sanctioned shoots, a total of 50 targets over two days. Targets vary in sizes from a small fox to a large moose or Buffalo, and all have visible score zones. Highest score wins.
The club has practice butts in place 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and two ranges with paper targets are also set up for you to shoot at any time. Club members are welcome to come to the club at any time. We hold a club shoot (40 targets in 1 day) approximately once a month as well as 3 major tournaments a year. These events include our very own one of a kind Turkey Shoot, comprising 40 turkey targets shot in one day. Our Caboolture Traditional Corrival is a great one for all the longbow, self bow and recurve archers, and our annual 3DAAA sanctioned shoot held over 2 days.
Within South East Queensland, NSW and Victoria there are many archery clubs also associated with 3DAAA. Many of our members travel to these other clubs to compete in competitions and enjoy a weekend away camping in natural surroundings. Archery is a fun family sport that is run within a safe environment and we encourage everyone to give it a go!
Membership fees are due every year on April 1st. Application forms are available at the club house or from the club’s Secretary. There is a once off $10 administration fee added to the fees to cover costs such as key cutting, membership cards & postage. This $10 has been added to the fees listed below

When you arrive at the club, the first thing you must do is SIGN
IN. This is VERY IMPORTANT!! If you fail to do so then you will
not be covered by insurance should there be an accident. There
is a book provided on the shelf at the clubhouse if the clubhouse
is unattended. You must also pay your shoot fees each time you
come to the club and your money should be placed through the slot
in the wall. We are a small club with little income so these shoot
fees are necessary to cover the costs of repairing the practice
butts, and keeping the ranges and club house in good order.
have paid your membership fee, every time you shoot at the club
you will need to pay the NON-Member’s
fee. Non Members are permitted to shoot at the club 3 times before
they are required to join.
all come to the club to have a fun time and even those on the
committee like to have fun too. We don’t like to keep
chasing people to pay their fees, please be fair to your other
club mates and pay the required fees.
* NB – This is for a trial period and is for Members only
Once you have paid your membership fee, you are free to come to the club at any time to practice. When you arrive there are rules to abide by.
Make sure you sign the members book and pay your fees before you go down to the practice butts or onto one of the courses.
Arrows are to be shot ONLY at the targets!!! While you are at the club we expect all members to be sensible. Archery can be dangerous and we will NOT tolerate any irresponsible behaviour.
All children must be supervised at all times. Children under 12 years of age are not permitted to carry arrows onto the courses, adults must carry them.
When on the courses NEVER walk back, always follow the course as signed to return to the club house. Someone else may have arrived after you and may be shooting behind you.
No alcoholic beverages may be carried or consumed on any range or practice area.
There is No Smoking in the clubhouse area and No Smoking on the courses. Smoking is only permitted in designated areas.
Enclosed footwear must be worn at all times while on the ranges.
Please make sure that all rubbish goes into the bins provided and not left on the ground. Not only does this keep the club looking tidy but it is also necessary for the wildlife that we share the grounds with.
Remember we are all here to have fun and these rules are only common sense. We at Caboolture Bowmen pride ourselves on our safety record and good reputation in the sport of archery. We hope that you, as a member of the club, will enjoy yourself and make many new friends.
Archery is a sport of form and mind
