Every year the Association of Norfolk Island Archers host visiting Australian and New Zealand archers on their South Pacific home turf. An Open Field tournament with compound, recurve, long bow, CUB divisions plus the island flavour, chook-chaser division, all set amongst the rainforest, is Archery Norfolk Island style. Visitors can expect a fun and challenging event.

Talk to any previous participants and they’ll tell you it’s not just about the competition there’s another special dimension to the shoot. The friendly local club, possibly the most hospitable in the Pacific, ply archers and families with island fish frys and social events through the week.

It’s a super-social event in fact the club encourage participants to bring along family members and friends to share in a Norfolk Island holiday. The island boasts many activities and tours for partners and friends to enjoy whilst archers are competing. Everyone unites later in the day to enjoy social activities that follow.

“Thank you very much indeed for your spectacularly organised holiday and archery competition … we could not have wanted for anything better! The organisation, service, information, welcome and farewell were perfect. We also had a wonderful, relaxed delightful family holiday & competed in our first international archery event … bringing trophies home was just another unexpected bonus! addition to all our happy memories, photos, stories…Like so many others, we can't wait to return to enjoy more of Norfolk” - M. Harvey

Norfolk has a unique beauty of its own, with its renowned tall majestic pines, sheer cliff faces, coral reefs and beautiful beaches. Almost one third of the island is devoted to National Parks and Reserves. But Norfolk Island is far more than a picturesque island in the South Pacific, it is paradise with a past. What was once a convicts’ nightmare is now the tranquil home of the descendants from the Mutiny on the Bounty, who have their own unique culture and their own language. There is much to see and do on Norfolk Island: fascinating historic tours, see Kingston which is a World Heritage Listed area,outdoor re-enactments of the Bounty Mutiny (with parts played by actual descendants of Fletcher Christian), ‘Light and Sound’ shows, eco-tours, glass bottom boat coral reef trips, swimming, snorkeling, fishing, dining out in the numerous fine restaurants, bush walking, scenic horse riding, golf on what has been called the world’s most beautiful golf course, bowls, tennis, and squash. Take advantage of Norfolk's tax-free shopping or perhaps simply take some time out to relax and enjoy Norfolk's peaceful existence.
