The eye squints, the arm muscle tightens, the bow is drawn back and the arrow flies. Thwack! Off in the distance the target is pierced… Well, at least that’s the theory!
At Terrace Downs you can put your archery skills to the test on the resort’s activities field. After a brief introductory lesson and safety briefing from our guides 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.
Archery is available 7 days a week. Advanced bookings are essential. See www.newzengland.co.nz for more information.
