Phoenix Paintball is set in 40 acres of bushland on the edge of the township of Rawson in the foothills of the Great Dividing Range. There are several field s and we are always attempting to upgrade, modify or plain make them over so there is always something new.
Upon arriving you will sign in, choose and pay for an initial package and any extra gear required. After receiving your overalls and listening to a safety briefing you will be issued your safety gear and marker, assigned to a team and taken to the first field. We generally say a 500 round package gets you a session time of 3-4 hours. This is from arriving till handing back the gear. At Phoenix you can play on till your group is either out of paint, time, energy or money -which ever comes first!!
During your session you will move through a variety of fields and play multiple games at each. Some games may be capture the flag or attack and defend the bunker, some have one life others have multiple lives. Games vary in length. There is plenty of time to stop and chat, compare notes, plan attacks etc between games. We don't just give you a loaded gun and leave you to your own devices for hours!!
The markers and paintballs we supply are manufactured and maintained to precise standards. All privately owned equipment must be inspected and logged by staff. The markers are powered by a small tank of liquid CO2 gas and are tested by chronograph to within the international safety limit of 300 feet per second.
The paintballs are non-toxic, non-caustic, water-soluble and biodegradable and are designed to split open easily when they hit a target. Therefore old or poor quality, cheap paintballs are not allowable. For safety purpose only paintballs supplied by Phoenix Paintball are to be used on the field on the day of play.

Our aim is for everyone to enjoy their visit to Phoenix Paintball. This includes giving due respect to players on opposing sides, visitors, spectators and other Lodge accommodation customers. Special care needs to be taken to avoid harming wildlife or farm animals (e.g. horses, goats) on the site.
Therefore in accordance with the Victorian Paintball Code of Practice, we must ensure that anyone who may be a potential source of danger to themselves or others is not permitted to participate in paintball games. In particular, we will not permit a person to play if that person is, in our reasonable opinion, under the influence of alcohol or other drugs. This site has a zero alcohol tolerance. Also no physical contact between players is permitted during paintball games.
Non-compliance with these expectations or staff directions may result in immediate exclusion from the site, without compensation.
