  • Masters Games 2019 Indoor

    There was a near full firing line on both nights. Everyone enjoyed themselves and there was some fine shooting all round.

  • Thanks to Shirley and Norm

    The success of the Indoor event was due largely to the efforts and Shirley and Norman Biggs who did an outstanging job or organising the event. Well Done!

About Us

The club dates from about the early 1980s and has operated out of various locations.

The founding members were Graeme & Lorraine McVitty, David Percy and in particular, our Life Members Rob and Helen Fairweather. These pioneers started and ran an archery club through some pretty tough times and strong opposition to the idea of having an archery club in Strathalbyn.

The club has had several names over the years including the Strathalbyn District Archers and was originally affiliated with the Australian Bowhunters Association. Today we are officially Strathalbyn Target Archers Incorporated trading as Great Southern Archers, and are affiliated with Archery South Australia and Archery Australia.
