Set in the historic regional town of Bendigo, about two hours drive from Melbourne, this is the venue for the Full Bore Shooting event.

The Government of Victoria has committed funds to a redevelopment program which includes a slight realignment of the range and new target mechanisms. The upgrade ensures a state-of-the-art facility with all technical equipment meeting the highest standards.

As one of Victoria's largest regional centres, Bendigo is looking forward to hosting the 2006 Commonwealth Games shooting fraternity, who will be accommodated in a satellite Games Village. The Wellsford Rifle Range currently hosts many regional and state championships.
