Welcome to the official website for the Moorabbin Archery Club

 
Founded in 1946, Moorabbin Archery Club (originally the Victorian Archery Club) is the one of the oldest existing archery clubs in Victoria. The field has been located at the present site since 1953 and was officially opened on 30th of March 1957 by the then Mayor of Moorabbin Cr. Shipston.
 
Whether you have some archery experience or you've never picked up a bow before, the Moorabbin Archery Club always welcomes newcomers and new members! 
 
Ever wanted to try archery? Come and have a go almost any Saturday or Sunday morning, with full instruction and equipment included in the shooting fee. Check the Calendar for start times and dates.
 
Compete at your own pace with our Oz Bow program or enter one of the many club, state or national competitions.
