East Perth Rifle Club

Founded in 1915 and Shooting from the Pinjar Rifle Range

Welcome

Welcome to East Perth Rifle Club where we provide education, mentoring, colleagueship and a healthy and safe environment to share our interest in rifle skills in Western Australia.

Our Club was founded over a century ago in 1915. With more than a hundred years of service we continue to enjoy our love for this sport.

Operating from the Pinjar Rifle Range

The East Perth Rifle Club is a member of the Metropolitan District Rifle Association that operates under the West Australian Rifle Association (WARA).

We operate out of the West Australian Rifle Association (WARA)’s Pinjar rifle range and aim to develop a community of like-minded people with an enjoyment for our rifle sport, which is one of the safest sports. We provide a very safe environment for the whole family to enjoy.

There is no age restrictions to become a Club member.

We allow children to have a safe, supervised and positive experience to learn about gun safety from the age of 10 years and all genders.
