About Loxley Archers

The Home Of Traditional Archery in Tasmania

We are a traditional / medieval archery club and conduct regular shoots on Saturdays

New member enquiries welcome!

We moved to Burnie Tasmania from Adelaide in 2004 and after reaching our goal of restoring our local club back up to the successful club it once was (with the blessing from one of the founding members Bruce McCaskill) decided to follow our passion of Medieval/Traditional Archery and so it all began. Loxley Archers was formed in May 2012 and became a club in its own right in August 2012. 

We are a Traditional Archery Club and teach Longbow, Horsebow, Barebow Recurve and use Wooden or Aluminium Arrows fletched with feathers. Our shooting targets consist of popinjays (birds up on a pole), wands and targets with knockout sections etc. Our focus is on family fun and our members love the fact that they are honing their skills without even realising it whilst having fun. For special club events/tournaments we attend in medieval style clothing, bring along a medieval dish to share for lunch and have a relaxing fun day.

We mainly shoot the second and fourth Saturday of the month at 1PM but do have regular extra shoots on other Saturdays and hold tournaments at other times during the year.

We run come & try sessions and 4 week beginners courses Saturday or Sunday mornings on request.

If you are 10 years old or over come and give archery a try! Children under 16 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
