Suitable for absolute beginners and experienced archers: Full training from qualified coaches and all required gear is included before you hit the trails on the hunt for wild foam beasts!


What is included:

  • All required equipment (bow, arrows, armguard, quiver to carry your arrows)
  • A visit into the most amazing native bush with special and creative archery targets set into scene
  • Plenty of time for shooting and walking on the archery trails - you set the pace


  • You should have a medium to good fitness level and must wear good solid shoes (tramping shoes are best), the track is cut like a rough tramping track, steep and muddy in places
  • Please bring a small backpack for your belongings, snacks, water, insect repellent and any emergency medication you may need
  • Minimum age is 10yrs, and kids under 16yrs must be accompanied by a participating adult (18yrs+)
  • Archery must be enjoyed sober
  • All our T&Cs apply

Rules for Self-Guided:

  • Minimum group size is 2 adults, for safety reasons

You must carry a charged cellphone and 1st aid kit (we have loan ones available) in case of emergency.
Lost or broken arrows are charged at $15 per arrow on your return (we take a security deposit in some form to make sure all items are returned). Other broken or lost rental gear is charged at replacement value.

Plan 10mins for a short 350m walk to the archery range, we suggest you arrive 15mins early on the car park of the Cable Bay Adventure Park
We expect you back at the range 3 hours after you start your walk into the 3D course (that's plenty of time).

"Great Value For Money

A great half day out, great value for money. Start out slow to get the technique right and then go for a walk through the native bush shooting targets. A great sense of achievement at the end of it…"
