This is about as much fun as you can have standing up, here in Queensland - leading the way in huntin', shootin' and 'tootin'. Archery! Who knew?
The range is out in a pretty spot of bush just south of Nambour. They do a training course: for twenty bucks the club trainer introduces you to the bow, teaches you all the safety you need to know, and enough technique to get you incredibly accurate after three days. Only an hour and a half each morning.
Thing that surprises me is the lack of women doing the sport. I'd have thought that with the cult of Diana and all, or at least the whole medieval goth thing that at least a few girlies would have picked up a bow. I guess they just don't teach the classics anymore.
