5 Spots for the Best Clay Shooting in Auckland

Spots for the Best Clay Shooting in Auckland

Ever had that urge to try clay shooting but don’t know where to start? 

Well actually, there aren’t a lot of clay shooting spots in Auckland. But, that doesn’t mean we don’t have good ones within the city and its outskirts – the options are still pretty solid if you ask us!

To help fellow enthusiasts like you, we’ve hunted down the best places for clay shooting in Auckland. Here you’ll find spots that are both great for individuals and groups, as well as beginners and experts.

Let’s go!

Wicked Bucks Parties


Contact details: 1300830001

Operating hours: Monday – Friday: 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM

Planning an epic bachelor party for the groom and his crew? Wicked Bucks Parties has just what you need! Their ultimate package costs $440 per person (for up to 10 people), but it’s a totally great value for money.

This package includes 15 targets per person, with all the inclusions you’ll need. You can expect full equipment rental, one night’s accommodation, a personal event planner, VIP nightclub entry, and, of course, a cold drink in hand. 

If you’re seeking something different, they’re open to customizing a package for you. Simply request a quote on their website to see how much it’ll set you back. 

No experience? No worries! No prior experience is necessary to join in on the fun. They provide all the necessary equipment and gear, so even if you’re a novice, you’ll still look the part.

By the way, here’s how it works with Wicked Bucks Parties: you’ll start with single incoming targets, and as your skills improve, they’ll increase the difficulty by throwing harder shots. 

But perhaps the best part of all is the location – the clay target course is nestled in the picturesque Auckland countryside. The views are so awesome, they might just distract you from hitting those targets!
