Experience The Bunkers


The Bunkers venue offers one of the best Claybird Shooting facilities in the world. It is located south of The Lodge and set amongst tranquil native bush, overlooking the Cook Strait towards the South Island.

The Bunkers offers a thrilling range of activities in a very relaxed setting, and is the perfect setting for a stag do, staff and clients entertainment, or a place to practice your aim with a group of friends.

Shooting can be easily adjusted from beginner through to competition level and tuition is available from our shooting instructors. There are 16 hidden traps across three fields which offer a completely different shooting experience - from simulated duck, driven pheasant to driven grouse.

Please see below for our range of sample packages (based on 15 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 to will create a tailored function to suit your needs. 

All the ammunition used at Boomrock is top quality B&P photodegradable fibre wads.

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.
