We cater to all your needs!

Teams, both big and small, come to Archery Park for a team building event that’s legendary! We have catered for groups from 4 to 40 people in the past.

Enjoy a combination of both archery lessons and a tournament on the practice range and you may even include an epic game of Archery Battle. 

Our archery range provides ample space for large groups and, during summer, we set up the shooting range under the shade of three massive trees.

We have picnic benches and can make refreshments available.

Location

Archery Park is only 15min drive from Nelson central. We are located at the Cable Bay Adventure Park on 194 Cable Bay Road.

Our target range is a 5min walk from the free car park and offers a shaded shooting area – which is great for those hot summer days. Numerous pick-nick benches are on site to watch and relax.

Take some time out from your busy days by learning a new skill while being surrounded by a bubbly stream, large trees, bird sounds and green hills.

Afterwards it is back to the target range where the newly acquired skills are put to the test with an archery tournament as in Option 1.

To round up the activities we will award the best archers with our highly sought-after medals that are handed over to the most senior staff for the award ceremony.

Health and Safety

Ensure your team’s safety with a full H&S briefing before the fun begins

Archery is a Safe Activity

Did you know that Archery is one of the safest sports? It had a reported injury rate of less than one incident per 1,000 participants in 2004. Sports like soccer, baseball and basketball have injury rates 15 to 25 times higher than archery.

Archery Park Limited is run by certified archery coaches and is fully insured with a $2 million public liability insurance. Our Health & Safety info material, including a full risk assessment, will keep your risk and OSH team happy and can be provided upon request.

We have current First Aid certification and a full first aid kit on site.

Absolutely no one gets to shoot without a full H&S briefing.

"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...."
