Armidale Rifle Club

Armidale's Premium Rifle Club

The first evidence of a rifle club in Armidale came from a report in the Armidale Express on the 2nd September 1865 which stated that a number of gentlemen had assembled and agreed to the establishment of a rifle club in Armidale, and a committee was appointed to prepare rules for the running of the rifle club.

The rifle club as we know it today was formed in 1885 as the Armidale Volunteer Rifle Company and a rifle range reserve No 2865 was notified on the 8th January 1887 which became known as the Long Swamp Road Rifle Range...

Rifle matches every Sunday from 10am at the Wollomombi Rifle Range! Visitors most welcome
