About the venue
The Archery Centre is an example of ecologically sustainable development where the buildings were constructed from recycled and recyclable materials, including all the steel work, and are naturally ventilated and lit. The roof is the longest piece of colourbond steel and the walls are made up of recycled timber. The poles holding the roof up are in the design of arrows.
The 6.5 hectare Archery Centre site is surrounded by natural mangrove wetlands and two sculptural ‘pole forests’ made from 185 recycled timber electricity poles. The idea of the pole forest grew from the desire to place trees in the landscape, and to evoke a sense of the forest, with the sport of archery. However the soil and site conditions did not allow this, and so the idea of recycling dead trees ie the telegraph poles, into a sculptural forest element to embrace the site was born.
The Archery Centre was the venue of archery competition during the Sydney 2000 Olympic and Paralympic Games, and today continues to host national, state and community competitions.
