Our Story  -  Independence. Action. Results.

Originally, the Shooters Party grew out of resentment at the 1992 Firearms Amendment Act. Shooters and hunters felt it was designed to make them the scapegoats for criminal misuse of firearms by others.

Since 1992, we have continued to be powerful voice for those who nobody is listening to, particularly shooters, fishers and farmers. We are committed to delivering real, meaningful, and lasting results for our voters. 

In 2016 we changed our name to the Shooters, Fishers and Farmers Party to reflect our existing support in rural areas.


Our members are drawn together by a drive to make sure that all Australians are free to live their lives without unnecessary government interference.

If you enjoy the outdoors or go hunting and fishing, there’s a fair chance you have already heard about the Shooters, Fishers and Farmers Party and know one of our Members of Parliament. While you may already know of our work on for shooters and fishers over the past 25 years, we have also championed the rights of farmers.  That's why we made the choice to change our name to the Shooters, Fishers & Farmers Party.

We acknowledge the vital role rural and regional Australia plays at both a State and National level. Our action plan for regional NSW will return rights to property owners, protect local jobs and industries and support regional communities. 

In line with this, the Party strongly supports the sustainable utilisation of Australia’s resources. However, we believe hunters, fishers, farmers, and other outdoor enthusiasts are well positioned to identify issues in sustainability and care for our natural environment. We reject a ‘lock away’ approach to the natural environment put forward by the major parties, particularly the Greens. Instead, we believe public lands should be actively managed. 

Conservative in family values, we honour and value the family unit as the basic building block of our society. We respect and honour our democratic traditions and those in our history that have made the ultimate sacrifice so that we may enjoy the freedoms we have today. We believe in a multicultural society, committed to the Australian values of freedom and democracy above all others.

We advocate for sensible solutions which provide a fair go for all. We represent a voice of reason, respecting science and conservation.  We follow through on our word without fear or favour.

Your voice needs to be heard. No other Party is committed protecting your freedoms and injecting common sense into government. If you’re sick of the major parties and their lack of regard for your rights and freedoms, join the Shooters, Fishers & Farmers Party today.
