SPECIAL NOTICE FOR GOLFERS TRAVELLING TO AUSTRALIA

Australia's rural-based economy requires strict bio-security, so it is important for golfers to enter the country with clean golf shoes and clean golf clubs. Anyone arriving with golf clubs and/or golf shoes will be diverted to quarantine inspection upon arrival in Australia. With clean shoes, clubs, and golf bags/travel covers, the inspection time should simply be a matter of minutes. For golfers with traces of dirt or grass, bio-security staff may clean the items and fines may be imposed on the spot. To ensure a speedy entrance, ensure that clubs, shoes, golf bags, and travel covers are free from dirt and grass.

Does the package include everything? 
- Has highlighted above the package includes 3 nights accommodation, all ground transfers including Essendon to Melbourne Airport, and 4x rounds of golf. This package doesn't include any meals except 1x continental breakfast at Cape Wickham. 

What will the weather be like in Feb/March? 
- This is generally the best time of year to visit Tasmania, with long periods of sunshine and temperatures ranging from 14-26 degrees celsius. However, due to both locations being very exposed to the elements, their is a strong chance of high winds and showers. 

Does the package include golf carts or pull buggies? 
- No! But this can be easily done on request. Given that most of you like to walk when playing, we have given you the option of golf carts (only available at Cape Wickham and Ocean Dunes) or pull buggies at every course. This can be confirmed closer to the date.
