Test your aim with clay targets – ideal for groups!

Test your aim on our scenic Claybird Shooting course overlooking the braided Waiau River. This fun and humane activity is suitable for all skill levels, with training provided by our experienced and licensed experts.

Your 10 clay target shots take approximately 15 minutes, making this an affordable and time-efficient option for anyone aged 16 years and over, and the activity can also be combined with our other attractions for a full day of fun. It’s a great challenge for groups of any size: can you shoot down the most targets to beat the competition?

  • Our Claybird Shooting experience includes 10 shots and takes approximately 15 minutes. Additional shots can be purchased before or during the activity. 
  • A minimum age of 16 years applies
  • We supply safety eyewear and earplugs for guests, as well as equipment including shotgun, ammunition and clay thrower. Please note our claybird site is outdoors, so please dress warmly and bring a jacket if the weather is cooler.
