Adventure and Nature

Archery Park

Archery Park is run by Markus, a long time archer with lots of experience and a few medals to show. Markus is a field archer and the Dragon Hunt Archery Experience is like no other archery adventure you may have seen:

The Dragon Hunt: A half day guided adventure tour where you learn to shoot bow and arrow, experience raw New Zealand with a trip to one of the last virgin native forests and stalk Dragons and other lifelike creatures with the longbow. This is one of Nelson’s top rated activities.

Archery Park also offers: Small group and individual lessons, team and group events, Archery Battle (Player VS Player archery) and regular archery have-a-go sessions. People interested in the sport can also join the archery club, and members and previous guest have access to a unique 3D archery range to shoot and practice on their own during opening times.

They also run a popular online shop for traditional archery gear on the same website.
