Australian Biathlon Association

Australian Biathlon Foundation

About

The Australian Biathlon Association is a not-for-profit organisation, with the objective of fostering the sport of biathlon within the wider community for the enjoyment, challenge and achievement of participants.

Biathlon is the only sport that combines the two very diverse disciplines of cross-country skate skiing and small-bore target shooting. Predominantly a winter sport it is fun, challenging and exciting or "Cool, Fast, Extreme and Accurate", as we like to define it. Competition events are held during the Australian winter snow season and and training camps during the off-season in the summer and autumn months.

Biathlon has a relatively small but enthusiastic following in Australia and is growing in numbers every year. The Australian Biathlon Association is devoted to fostering participation and good competition in this exciting sport, and enjoyment of our beautiful alpine regions. All competitions are held at Whiskey Flat at Mount Hotham and is the only registered Alpine shooting range in Australia. 

The Australian Biathlon Foundation was established to raise funds for various development initiatives such as:

  • Travel assistance toi support athletes competing overseas
  • Equipment purchases, such as laser biathlon rifles
  • Facility upgrades
