North Arm Rifle Club

Davison Range North Arm

Proud home of precision long range target shooting on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast


Welcome to North Arm Rifle Club

North Arm Rifle Club provides experienced shooters and those interested to Come and Try our sport with a well equipped, friendly, safe and picturesque venue for precision long range target rifle shooting. We are located at The Davison Range Target Sports Complex, between Yandina and Eumundi, and centrally located on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast.

The sport of Fullbore covers several different disciplines including:

  • F-Class using a rest and telescopic sights
  • Target Rifle using a sling and open sights
  • Anzac .303 using rifles of historical military significance.


At Davison Range Fullbore is shot between 300 metres to 700 yards. To be a successful shooter competitively our sport requires training, experience, refinement of technique, skills such as wind reading (which can be especially challenging among the hills of Davison Range), handloading, patience and concentration. Fullbore competitors also score and check score for each other during competition.

North Arm Rifle Club offers shooting each Saturday on a fortnightly cycle of practice and club competition together with annual prize meetings events. Please see our range calendar for a full list of forthcoming events.

Visitors are always welcome to the club and unlicensed shooters wishing to Come and Try need to make an appointment to attend a club practice day where they will receive one on one guidance to safely experience the thrill and challenges of fullbore shooting.

To make an appointment to Come and Try call Des on 0408063896.


COVID condition compliance will be required for all participants at the range.
