Hornsby Rifle Range

Operated by

North Shore Regional Target Shooting Complex Management Association Inc

(NSRTSCMA)

The Hornsby Rifle Range was reserved in 1858, and was established for training in marksmanship. Prior to Federation all men were required to join the militia, as part of national military preparedness for such emergencies as the Boer War of 1890, the Great War of 1915 to 1918 and World War II.

 

The Hornsby Rifle Range is on Crown Land and is operated under licence by the North Shore Regional Target Shooting Complex Management Association Inc for use by the Department of Defence, NSW Police, Australian Federal Police, various semi-government organisations, Full Bore and Small-Bore Target Rifle Clubs, Service Rifle Clubs, Pistol Clubs, National Parks and Wildlife Service, RSPCA, Training and Security Organisations, schools and scout groups.

 

The complex consists of three ranges, a 25 to 800 metre Full Bore Range, a 50 metre Small-Bore Range and a 3 to 100 metre Pistol and Rimfire Range. At the end of each range there are earthen stop-butts and other measures to capture projectiles; and there are noise abatement berms on either side. Beyond the butts is a Range Safety Template (as marked on street directories and other maps) which is surrounded by, but is NOT part of, the Berowra Valley National Park.

All live firing on the range is undertaken following rigid protocols and NSW Police have no record of any firearms related injuries associated with the rifle range since its inception in the late 19th century.

There are 8 clubs that operate on the Hornsby Range complex, their club logos are at the top of this page and clicking on those logos will take you to their web sites.

At the left hand side of the range gates is a flag pole - a red flag on the flagpole means the range is active.  At night a red light means the range is active.
