The Norfolk Island journey is a long-time favourite for Clay Target shooters, and next year the Norfolk Clay Target Association celebrates its 34th International Championships 02-07 February 2014.

An established popular event held in the first week of February it’s no wonder clay shooters have Norfolk Island in their sights. Each year the Norfolk Island Clay Target Association hosts visitors atop Anson Bay, one of the most scenic spots on the island, for a week of competitive shooting and socialising among local club members and Australian and New Zealand visitors.

The week kicks off on Sunday afternoon when nominations are taken and the bar and clubhouse open with a welcome island style fish feast. The championships run throughout the week with the presentation dinner at major sponsor South Pacific Resort Hotel held on Friday night.

The Norfolk Island championships are unique because the event attracts so many visitors from Australia and New Zealand. Competitors literally meet in the middle on Norfolk Island soil so the comp is a true melding of Aussie, Kiwi and locals competing for the titles. Events include 50 Target Skeet, Double rise, Single Barrel, Ball Trap, Skeet Pairs, Ball Trap Pairs, High gun, Ladies High gun, international teams and more.

Best of all the championships have become a great reason for partners, family and friends to tag along for a Norfolk Island holiday, the club invites all to attend the welcome, presentation and social functions during the week. As the championships are held late summer it’s the perfect time to visit and enjoy the beaches, deep sea fishing, snorkeling and all activities on offer. In fact it’s not unusual for shooters to multi-task their holiday, to compete in the morning and get married that afternoon!

Norfolk Island Travel Centre

Norfolk Island Travel Centre is an award winning travel agency that specialises in quality, personalised travel. 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.
