DELIVERING FOR MEMBERS

QRA – A PLACE TO BELONG

Our organisation dates back to 1861 and we take pride in our history and contribution to the community. 

We provide a unique community sport, offering participation at all levels to a wide range of people throughout Queensland.  The QRA is an incorporated association with a board of directors which represents the interests of members from various affiliated rifle clubs around the state. These people come from all walks of life, and as individuals have found they have a place to belong within our QRA community. 

The QRA is very keen to support its members and the community in any way we can.  This support is both on and off the shooting range, and encompasses some very broad areas.
