About Us

Geelong Archers Inc was established in May 1960. This makes us the oldest continually operating archery club in Geelong and one of the oldest in Victoria. Our members shoot a variety of different bows including Compound, Recurve, Horse bow and Longbow and shoot both with and without sights depending on their own personal shooting preference.

Whilst the club has been known as Geelong Archers Inc since establishment it did merge with the Corio Bay Archery Club on
8 November 2012, with the club acknowledging the history of both these clubs but coming under the one identity known as Geelong Archers Inc.
