Australian Biathlon Association

Australian Biathlon Foundation


The Australian Biathlon Foundation was established to raise funds for various development initiatives, particularly the purchase of specialist biathlon equipment, which is only available from overseas.

The Australian Biathlon Association is the National Federation for the Winter Olympic Sport of biathlon, which combines target shooting with cross country skiing. We are a not-for-profit organisation, with the aim of promoting the sport of biathlon in Australia at al levels in both its winter and summer programs. We are affiliated with the International Biathlon Union (IBU) and the Australian Olympic Committee, and provide the only pathway to international representation at IBU and Olympic events. We welcome all recreational and serious participants in summer and winter biathlon and cater for all levels, from newbie laser kids, to developing athletes, to high performance, to masters.

We hold our winter competition events and off-season training at the Hotham Biathlon Arena and have active branches located in Melbourne, Wodonga, East Gippsland and NSW. For more information on our events, please see  and for details of biathlon in NSW, check out:

Biathlon has a small but enthusiastic following in Australia and is growing in numbers every year. We aim to develop and assist athletes to achieve outstanding results in international competition, to grow participation in the sport of biathlon generally in Australia, and to maintain and operate the biathlon range at the Hotham Biathlon Arena at Whiskey Flat, Mount Hotham, site of the only biathlon range in Australia. We also promote doping-free biathlon and gender equality.
