Burnie Bowman Archery Club

The Burnie Bowmen Archery Club was founded in 1958 by three railway workmates who had developed an interest in archery and then developed the sport of archery in Burnie. This club has influenced the development of archery along the North West Coast of Tasmania. The first club to be established in Tasmania was Hobart followed by Burnie, Launceston, Beaconsfield and Devonport. Despite the club being named Burnie Bowmen participation is open to all sexes and all ages. Burnie Bowmen cater for all bow types and all disciplines of archery. Archery is a sport for all seasons and for all people whatever their age, gender or level of physical ability. It is also a very versatile sport since it can be as simple or as involved as the archer wishes.
