Why join?

There are many benefits to becoming a member of Field & Game Australia. Here are some of them:

You and your firearms are covered:

Field & Game Australia members enjoy the peace of mind that comes with having $25 million Public Liability Insurance cover for all Field & Game Australia activities and are also secure in the knowledge that every firearm registered in their name is automatically covered for up to $15,000 per claim. See our Insurance page for more details.

Opportunities to contribute:

Members have the chance to play a role in vital wetland habitat conservation, restoration and preservation, as well as contribute to scientific research into our native waterfowl. You will also have the opportunity to assist primary producers and protect our native wildlife with pest and feral animal hunting.

Access to Heart Morass:

Heart Morass has been transformed from a barren wasteland to a healthy wetland thanks to the efforts of our conservationist hunters and project partners. FGA members have priority access to this beautiful wetland environment for camping, hunting, fishing and other recreational purposes.

Advocacy and representation for your passion:

Our members have FGA board members, national office staff and skilled branch members continually working for their interests. With over 65 years of history, Field & Game Australia is a credible and respected organisation and our representatives are effective advocates and responsible negotiators. Your membership supports the future of your passion and helps us liaise on your behalf with key decision-makers to ensure that ethical hunting, shooting sports, and law-abiding firearm owners are fairly represented.

Social and competitive recreation:

With access to more than 50 FGA shooting grounds across the country, our members are keen participants in simulated field clay target shooting and other shotgun target disciplines. As a member, you are welcome to attend any of our branches’ regular shoots. It’s a great way to improve your shooting and make new friends.

Ethical hunting:

Field & Game Australia is an accredited and ethical hunting organisation. Membership offers you the chance to join organised group hunting activities, whether for feral and pest animal control or for hunting recognised game species during the appropriate season. The seasonal harvest of game food is a highlight.

Genuine reason for firearm ownership:

Field & Game Australia membership and activities satisfy the ‘genuine reason’ requirement for firearms licensing across all Australian states and territories. NOTE: Membership MUST be maintained for the duration of the licence.

The knowledge advantage:

Information and education are a huge part of Field & Game Australia. Members keep up-to-date on hunting, target sports and firearm news and issues via our website, social media channels, and e-newsletter, and can access great initiatives like the Shotgunning Education Program, waterfowl identification training and test sessions, clay target coaching, conservation workshops, and hunting dog training and retrieving.

The stories you love:

With your Field & Game Australia membership, you will receive the quarterly Field & Game magazine containing articles covering our three pillars – hunting, conservation and clay target shooting.
