Archery - Near Methven / Christchurch
Bullseye! - An outdoor activity for friends, family and work colleagues

Archery is available seven days a week with Newzengland, located at Terrace Downs High Country Resort on the banks of the Rakaia Gorge near Methven.

Nestled in the peace and tranquility of the pine forest, we cater for all levels – from the complete novice to the very experienced shot. Archery is an excellent sport for all age groups, we have the bows to fit all sizes including children.

The team at Newzengland are committed to delivering an outstanding experience for all our clients. After a brief introductory lesson and a safety briefing you’ll be wielding a bow and arrow with almost as much finesse as Robin Hood, Maid Marion or the legendary William Tell.

Get the bulls-eye in your sights and then let rip with your arrow and watch it as it torpedoes towards its target. Compete with your friends to see who is the best shot or simply work on improving your own precision.

Even if you’ve never picked up a bow and arrow before you’ll love this chance to try out one of the world’s oldest sports in one of the world’s most beautiful spots.

Safety while practising archery is of primary importance to us. We will guide you through your archery experience so you will stay safe, have fun and most importantly have an excellent shot at getting that bullseye.

Newzengland Ltd is an outdoor activity in Canterbury that opens rain or shine! Please bring appropriate sturdy footwear and warm clothing.

As well as catering for Archery, we offer Clay Bird Shooting, and a Mini Olympic Challenge which combines clay bird shooting, archery and your chipping skills with a golf club, a great competition with your mates or family – perfect for hen and stag parties.
