Spring has arrived, and in case you missed our Instagram post a few weeks back, we had an ultimate day out to showcase some of the many things to do in Canberra during Spring. Here’s a rundown….
CLAY TARGET SHOOTING
First up we drove a Mercedes Benz E200 (provided to us for the weekend by Mercedes Benz Canberra) out to the Majura Park Gun Club for some clay target shooting. These guys have a great setup. Multiple people can shoot at once, they have 16 sporting traps including Chondel, Rabbit, Battue, Middi and Mini and cater for all types of skill levels. Every Wednesday evening they hold a beginners session if you’re wanting to give it a go. Beginners shoot for $40. Sign on commences at 5pm, last sign on at 7:30pm (no bookings). Fees include gun hire, ammunition, 25 targets, hearing protection and instructor led tuition. They have a professional set up and you can cater food and drinks for any event.

Next stop was a "Lap of the lake" with Canberra Helicopters. Taking off from their hanger at the Canberra Airport heading over the city, around Lake Burley Griffin, past Parliament House and back. The views over the city are fantastic and not something you get to see everyday. Canberra Helicopters offer a 15 minute lap of the Lake flight from $150 pp and many other great packages are available.

Off to Paintball Sports ACT. There are over 10 fields, and plenty of room. It was loads of fun and we didn't end up with many bruises, so don't be scared off by the pain you always hear about.

To finish the day we took a brewery tour at Capital Brewing Co. These guys have a great setup and its perfect for a brewery tour which run every Saturday and Sunday at 2 and 4pm (book online). Go behind the scenes and see how malt, hops, water and yeast turns into delicious beer! For $25, you’ll receive a beer on arrival, the full behind-the-scenes brewery tour, and a tasting paddle at the end.
