Kelvin and Michelle are great hosts. Kelvin is incredibly knowledgable (and patient!) and was able to teach even me how to hit a claybird! Highyl recommended for a fun afternoon activity.

Our host Kelvin is a very natural tutor. He gave an excellent safety demo and a great introduction to the shotguns we would be using. He has this down to a science; all the information and not a lot of wasted words.
Kelvin was also wonderful as a trainer for those of us who had never fired before---he turned us into shooters (instead of missers) in no time.
The fascilities are impressive, even more so because he put it together himself. Great spot for a simple shoot or for a party.

We had a great time with Kelvin out on his farm. A great character for sure! Everything is so well organized and very clean. ( Even the washroom ) and nothing has been overlooked. He has it set up for large groups or just a couple, with refreshments, sunscreen, a camera and a big tent for viewing out of the sun. He is clearly compassionate about teaching people how to safely use a firearm and have a fun at the same time. Excellent value for money, I would suggest taking the second round that he offers at a great discount! It is a short drive from Taupo, and not far from Rotorua as well. His sign is hard to spot, set off the grid road quite far back so keep your eyes peeled.

Hi Brusk22,
Thank you for the review for Clay Break Taupo, however I am unsure what your comments relate to.....? particulary, "Take the long walk... It's truly worth it" Perhaps you refer to "Craters of the Moon? a beautiful tourist attraction not too far from Clay Break Taupo. However as I do not recognise your email contact I cannot communicate direct. Cheers and I trust you enjoyed your Taupo experience.... no matter the actual location... kind regards... Clay Break Taupo.

Went out for a stag do. Didn’t expect too much as I had done clay target shooting before and not been overly impressed but the set up here was very impressive. Points of difference include a comprehensive safety and training demo for those who haven’t shot before. heaps of target throwers means up to four people can shoot at the same time making for fun trying to hit someone else’s target. Drinks and food were organised as part of the day and the setting with the bar and outdoor seating is fantastic- on a nice sunny day it was hard to beat. Friendly host and a great day. Highly recommended.
