SPORTING SHOOTERS ASSOCIATION OF AUSTRALIA was established in 1948 in order to promote the shooting sports and protect firearm owners’ interests.

Today – the role of the Association remains respectfully the same. SSAA members are represented by their individual SSAA State or Territory Associations, Australia wide in accordance with the individual State or Territory Government Firearm Regulations. Some SSAA State and Territory Associations are Companies or Incorporated Associations.

SSAA (Qld.) Inc. is a not-for-profit Incorporated Association, being the Parent Body of more than 75 Branches throughout Queensland.

Over 77,000 SSAA Queensland members have the opportunity to attend over 90 SSAA Branches and Affiliate Clubs throughout the State.

SSAA Queensland owns and manages 7 Shooting Complexes throughout Queensland on behalf of Queensland Members.

Public Liability Insurance for our sport has become ever-increasingly difficult to obtain, SSAA (Qld.) in conjunction with Steadfast ART Limited commenced a Discretionary Mutual Fund to ensure Queensland Members are protected from the uncertainty and ever-increasing costs of obtaining public liability now and in the future.  Further information regarding the Discretionary Mutual Fund can be found here – Deporte Mutual – Certificate of Currency – Conditions – Permission Form.
