About Biathlon

With its origins in the military training regimes between Sweden and Norway border patrol units, the combination of cross-country skiing and small bore rifle target shooting is now a popular Winter Olympic sport with competitions in Europe regularly attracting thousands of spectators. Biathlon in Europe is bigger than Australian Rules Football. Biathlon has a small but enthusiastic following in Australia. The Australian Biathlon Association is devoted to fostering participation and good competition in this exciting sport, and enjoyment of our beautiful alpine regions. All competitions are held at Whiskey Flat at Mount Hotham and is the only registered Alpine shooting range in Australia.

We hope that you enjoy your visit to our site and look forward to seeing you on the snow.
