Campbell Town Rifle Range Re-development

Sports and Recreation TasmaniaThe Tasmanian Rifle Association Inc. has embarked on an ambitious program to redevelop the Campbell Town Rifle Range with financial assistance from the Tasmanian Government through the Department of Economic Development which has provided a substantial grant from Sport and Recreation Tasmania.

The program of redevelopment for the range includes a new amenities building behind the 1200 yard mound which will be accessible while shooting is conducted at any range, including Match Rifle distances. The redevelopment will also involve cladding the existing Campbell Town Rifle Club House to preserve the structure, renovations to the toilet block adjacent to that clubhouse, resurfacing and reforming of the shooting mounds, toilet facilities at the butts, and some basic road works to provide more reliable access to each of the shooting mounds and the butts area.

Work has already commenced and local Council approval has been granted for the erection of the amenities building, planning for which is well advanced.
