Range Officers

**We are currently needing more Range Officers to be able to open the range for discipline and casual shooting on the main range, without a Range Officer we cannot open the range for use.


             We offer full training and mentoring in obtaining your SSAA State RO Qualification.


There are some general requirements and we would welcome interested people into our RO roster to assist and run the range as required.

If you would like to assist or find out more information, please ask the RO when attending the range or email the Contact link **


**Please follow the posted speed limit signs when entering the facility, 20km/h is posted limit on the main road and 10km/h on the approaches of the culvert. In wet conditions, excessive speed will further damage road infrastructure.**


Generally (unless otherwise specified, or due to weather) the Rifle Range is open to Casual Shooting Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays, from approximately 8am to 1pm, or at the Range Officers Discretion.  There is no need to book a range space.

Safety Equipment is mandatory on all SSAA Townsville Branch Inc. Ranges.

Hearing protection must be worn on all ranges, as well as enclosed shoes. Eye wear also required for all pistol shooting.

Casual Range Fees:

$15 for SSAA Members

$30 for Non-SSAA Members

A target fee for a casual shooter shooting a discipline will be $5 for new targets, (e.g Field Rifle, Benchrest) $2 for reusable/second hand targets (e.g. Lever Action, CSD & Silhouette)  Target fees are for casual shooters only who choose to shoot a discipline, NOT Annual Amenities Card Holders.

To assist our Range Officers please try to bring the correct cash or smaller denominations.  We DO NOT have EFTPOS facilities at this stage.
