G'day, and welcome to the Tasmanian Experience 'Cape to Barnbougle'.

Below, we have put together a comprehensive itinerary over five days, that includes some of the best golf courses Australasia has to offer. This trip will also take in the very best local produce this beautiful region has become famous for. 

Starting at King Island, off the north-west tip of the Tasmania, you will play newly opened Cape Wickham and Ocean Dunes courses. From here, you will depart for Barnbougle, located on the Tasmanian mainland. Barnbougle Dunes and Lost Farm Golf Courses run side-by-side and have been rated 33rd and 40th respectively in the world by Golf Digest 2016. 

As an additional bonus, we have 2 of the very best coaches in New Zealand to host you on this once in a life time experience. Your IOG Coaches will be on hand  prior to each round of golf to hone your skills for these beautiful courses.

This promises to be one special journey. We look forward to hosting you throughout this fantastic experience.

Best wishes

The Eighth Wonder Team.

KING ISLAND

 King Island is anchored in the middle of the Bass Strait between the southeast coast of Victoria and Tasmania’s northwest coast. Skirted by some of Australia’s most beautiful beaches, King Island is a magnet for the world’s best surfers and is home to produce sought by the world’s top chefs. Succulent beef, rich gourmet cheese, and crayfish plucked from the Island’s crystal clear waters are just three of the delicacies you can enjoy on your visit. While the prospect of unwinding in this quiet, peaceful paradise may be what attracts our visitors, it is the people they meet while here who encourage their return.

TASMANIA

  Tasmania, an isolated island state off Australia’s south coast, is known for its vast, rugged wilderness areas, largely protected within parks and reserves. Home to just 500,000 people, it is as intimate as it is beautiful. Its gorgeous capital city, Hobart, is home to one of the world's most intriguing art galleries, Museum of New and Old Art (MONA), while northern Launceston is one of the few cities on the planet to be wrapped around a gorge. Drive anywhere in the island state and you can go from beach-lined coasts to World Heritage-listed mountain areas in just a few hours. Along the way you'll pass welcoming farm-gate producers, cellar doors and restaurants specialising in local produce so fresh it's the envy of the culinary world.
