The NSW Rifle Association is the peak body for rifle clubs in NSW. It was formed in 1860 and at time was closely associated with the military in charge of the colony.
In 2010, we celebrated the Sesquicentenary – 150 years since the formation. This period of time has seen great changes, and the very fact that the Association still exists is a testimony to the vision and enthusiasm of the founding members.
