Experience The Bunkers

Boomrock has developed “The Bunkers”, three five-stand sporting clay fields for corporate clients and shooting enthusiasts. Located south of the Lodge and set amongst tranquil native bush, the club rooms overlook the Cook Strait towards the South Island.

Guests will experience a variation of clay targets from the sixteen hidden traps. Each field offers a completely different shooting experience from simulated duck, driven pheasant to driven grouse.


Shooting can be easily adjusted from beginner through to competition level and tuition is available from our shooting instructors.

Please see below for our range of sample packages (based on 20 guests), each designed to suit the time you have available, your budget and your catering requirements. The Bunkers facility also offers a range of activities such as archery, knife throwing and the 4WD experience so get in touch with the team who can create a tailored function to suit your needs. 

The Boomrock Bunkers was named after the bunkers which were once overnight camps (bivouacs), used by the Home Guard back in 1941 on the Ohariu Coast, to keep an eye out for enemy ships coming through the Cook Strait. An arsenal of rocks were collected on the cliff top to roll down on invaders, and the few reject army rifles with ten rounds per man gave little cause for optimism.

The Bunkers is without a doubt the most unique shooting environment that I have come across in my international career. I highly recommend a visit to The Bunkers for not only shooting enthusiasts but also to entertain corporate and private groups, as this is undoubtedly a world-class facility.
