About the club...

Bairnsdale Field & Game Inc is a friendly club located 10 minutes south of Bairnsdale off the Bengworden Road.

With approximately 500 members we are an active club who run simulated field competition shoots on the second Sunday of each month, generally starting at 9:30am. We also meet for a monthly practice shoot on the Saturday a fortnight after the competition shoot starting at midday.

The club has had an exciting year during 2016. We were fortunate to gain two grants to enable us to construct new club house facilities, and are shortly to embark on a project funded by a second grant which will see the club install two skeet and DTL layouts to enable new coaching programs for junior shooter development in a broad range of disciplines to be run at the club, and which will make clay target shooting more accessible to shooters with mobility issues. 

Bairnsdale Field & Game were also very excited to see our junior member, Aislin Jones, represent Australia in ISSF Women's Skeet at the 2016 Rio Olympics. Placing 17th at her debut Olympics was a significant achievement, and we are very proud to have had an association with Aislin since her very first shot was fired on our grounds several years ago. Aislin continues to use our skeet ground as one of her main training facilities.

Bairnsdale Field & Game are in the fortunate position to own our ground, and the facilities and equipment are constantly improving as  a result of a vibrant and active committee, along with the support of local businesses who sponsor the club. 

The site is a fantastic environment for simulated field shooting, set in coastal bushland typical of the area is a network of tracks that accommodate a wide variety of targets, and below the bushland we have several hectares of open grassland. With the recent purchase of a number of Promatic & Bowman traps we can now run two full layouts to accommodate large events such as the annual 150 target Riviera Classic.

Bairnsdale Field & Game has a long & proud history of involvement in conservation of local wetlands. In addition the club has a yearly nesting box program which provides habitat for waterbirds, along with running drives to eradicate introduced predators such as foxes which prey on waterbirds.
