If you’re looking for a fun and unique experience on the Gold Coast, look no further than Lumber Punks Axe Throwing.
From the moment we walked in we knew we were in for a wild ride. The decor was rustic and charming, with plenty of axe-themed decorations to get us in the mood. With 12 lanes to choose from to test our skills, there was plenty of space for everyone to join in on the fun.
Our coach Caleb was an absolute legend. He gave us some helpful tips on how to throw the axe and hit the target, but more importantly, he reminded us to trust ourselves and let our bodies do the work. It wasn’t just about physical strength, but mental focus as well. Let me tell you, it was so satisfying when I finally hit the bullseye – or got it to actually stick into the target at all.
Throughout our time there, the staff were always on hand to help out, give tips and stance advice, and make sure everyone was having a great time.
We tried out a game of “Gauntlet,” which was a blast. The goal was to spell out the word “league” by hitting the targets from left to right, the first person to spell out the word won. It was intense, but we had so much fun trying to outdo each other and see who could come out on top. Caleb kept our whole team busy rotating through a bunch of different axe throwing games and the competition was intense.
Lumber Punks had plenty of cold beverages and lots of cool merchandise available to remember the experience. It was the perfect way to cap off a fantastic afternoon.
But here’s the best part, axe throwers get to control the music during the session.
That’s right, you get to choose your own soundtrack to accompany your axe-throwing adventure. Whether you want to throw to some classic rock or pump up the energy with some rap or 90’s pop, the choice is yours.
Lumber Punks also has an axe league for the locals, with unlimited practice for all skill levels. They have team and solo leagues, and even a seasonal league with four seasons per year. Each league runs for eight weeks plus grand finals and the end of season afterparties are apparently legendary.
We had an amazing time at Lumber Punks. The venue was clean and well-maintained, the staff were friendly and helpful, and the experience itself was unforgettable.
