Belmont Shooting Complex

The complex is the only shooting venue in Australia equipped to host all shooting disciplines within a single location, and was the venue for the 1982 Commonwealth Games shooting competition.

The Belmont Shooting Complex will host the Clay Target, Full Bore, Pistol and Small Bore shooting events for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games (GC2018).

Recent modifications and upgrades to the existing facilities include the existing pistol range, existing full bore and approval has been obtained for construction of a temporary shotgun range venue. The location of the GC2018 Clay Target Range was carefully chosen to minimise environmental impacts and was placed over a pre-existing 300-metre target range.
