Kiss My Axe brings you Sydney’s newest extreme sport: urban indoor axe throwing. We’ve taken lumberjacking out of the woodlands and brought it to the heart of Alexandria. We promise thrilling, memorable (and safe) axe-periences that’ll be on your lips for years to come and keep you coming back for more.
Axe Throwing isn’t just for lumberjacks (and jills), it’s for anyone on the hunt for a bloody good time. We have a team of kick-axe coaches ready to help you hit the target. Don’t worry we’ll be gentle with you, at least the first time anyway. Got a question, head to our FAQs page or get in contact.
Urban axe throwing is a fun sport where you’ll get the opportunity to throw solid steel axes at wooden targets in an axe-tion packed 2-hour session:
A Large Group session runs for 2-hours and costs $60 per person
A Small Group session runs for 1 hour and costs $50 per person. We call this the taster session!
Please see our ‘Packages’ tab for full range of activities and pricing.
A Large Group session requires a minimum of 8 people.
A Small Group session requires a minimum of 2 people (except Saturdays which is a minimum of 4)
The more people, the more axe-citement!
Absolutely anybody is allowed to throw an axe so long as:
You are not intoxicated by alcohol or drugs.
Imagine darts on a much bigger scale. You only have one thrower at a time and in one direction so there is little that could go wrong.
We have implemented a number of safety measures and protocols to prevent any unforeseen injuries from occurring. This includes self-contained axe throwing lanes and a zero-alcohol policy. Plenty of time for drinks afterwards at the brewery next door.
Your safety is our top priority. Our expert coaches are trained to make you feel comfortable every step of the way.
You will be required to undertake our safety induction and training before beginning any throwing and then will have 1-on-2 coaching for the entire session to help make you feel more comfortable.
Yes, but only up to 20 weeks into your pregnancy and at your own discretion.
Given the physical nature of axe throwing, we recommend waiting until after the birth of your child. Your safety and the safety of your child is paramount to us.
Yes, the minimum age to axe throw is 16 and all minors must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
Believe it or not, the axes are a lot lighter than you think – the lightest (and smallest) weighs in at just under 300g and our largest axes weighs up to 1kg.
Our professionally trained instructors will help you select the most suitable axe for the technique required.
We’ve searched far and wide to bring you the finest selections of axes for throwing so no need to bring your own.
League Players – Axe us how we can best help you select the right axe.
A legal guardian is considered as any person that has been appointed to care for another person by court and make decisions on their behalf. This does not include family members or close friends unless they have legally been granted responsibility over this person.
Women worldwide are killing it on the axe throwing league circuit.
Axe throwing isn’t about power but skill and we love seeing the lumberjills giving the lumberjacks a run for their money.

Had an absolute blast at Kiss My Axe on Monday! It was the BEST fun we’ve had in a while. Staff were very friendly and approachable and knew how to have fun and make it an awesome experience! Shout out to Ian for our experience, he was incredible! So much fun, lots of laughs. We will definitely be back!!
There isn't much more that could be said about this place besides KISS MY AXE!!! Great atmosphere and place to go for any type of event. The staff know how to make it an exciting day for you so you can take a seat back and just enjoy. Whether its your first time or an experienced Axe Thrower, you'll have a blast letting loose and chucking those axes and hitting your target. ITS A MUST TRY!!! Definitely going to come back here as a date!
Just did date night at Kiss My Axe it was so much fun!! Such a great birthday present and well worth the money! I would particularly recommend going in bigger groups and doing a tournament style activity! It would also be so great for a bucks activity. All the team were really friendly and funny. Will, who lead our group, is an absolute legend! He really made us feel welcome and was hilarious throughout the night! He brought a bunch of couples who were strangers that were pretty quiet at the start to cheering each other by the end of the night. Great bloke with a lot of energy, he definitely made the night extra fun! TLDR: 10/10 recommend this place even if it's a bit of a trek to get there!
Great experience from the beginning to the end! Will, our instructor was Amazing!!! He made the axe throwing experience more fun than we assumed. Everyone was very helpful over the phone and at the place. Would love to go again. Great job Kiss My Axe Team!! Thank you 😀
Excellent experience from beginning to end. Fairly last minute booking for a big group. They were so helpful on the phone and on the night. Everyone had a brilliant time, food arrived on time and was just what we asked for, I feel like there are some axe throwing converts now. Hats off to the team, great work. Thank you!
We went to Kiss My Axe for the couple night and had an amazing time. The atmosphere was really fun and the staff were really engaging. It was one of the best dates we have had. I highly recommend for fun activity to do with friends or with your partner. Lots of laughs to be had! Shout out to Will and Claudio who were great instructors.
For a Christmas present we were given a booking for Kiss My Axe on their Couples night and what a great gift it turned out to be! The staff are friendly and polite, Will our instructor/games Master of Ceremony could not have been better at making everyone feel at ease and taking us through the art of throwing an axe. It was a great evening and excellent value for money considering you’re there for 2 hours. Highly recommend to everyone and anyone!
Had a sensational time at Viking Boot Camp! Great safety protocol, guidance in throwing technique, fun games and ways to make it competitive and fun. Our Axe master was Jason, he had great energy and made the afternoon more fantastic. A great out of the ordinary activity, the girl I brought along was quite petite but she absolutely smashed it so its suitable for everyone. Thanks everyone, what a fun experience thwomping axes and letting loose. Looking forward to the next time!
An awesome awesome activity to do! Staff are as friendly as can be. My partner was scared to try at first but as soon as the staff explained what to do and how to do it, she ended up coming second place and having the greatest time. Best way to spend your money on such a unique activity that you don't come by very often. Will 100% be returning to Kiss My Axe when visiting Sydney and would recommend to everyone!
What a super fun way to spent a couple hours with friends! The staff especially Ian are very friendly and thorough in teaching and their demonstrations to throw the axe. Created a party vibe even though it was only 8 of us and will definitely be back! Can see this being addictive (Did lose early in our tournament so will be back for many practice throws)
