Gosford District Rifle Club was founded at the Kariong Range site in 1947.
One of the founding members and first Captain was a local man, Jim Sweet, who became known nationally as one of the best Australian shooters in the 1950’s
Kariong Regional Shooting Complex is now home to three rifle clubs and two pistol clubs. Following is a brief overview of the three rifle clubs:
