Tasmania is different to the many other great Australia golf locations as it is an isolated island state, to the south of the Australian mainland. Tasmania is the 26th largest island in the world and the main island is surrounded by 334 smaller islands.
The population of Tasmania is between 500,000 and 600,000 people, almost half of which live in the Greater Hobart precinct, which surrounds Hobart, the capital city of the island.
A Tasmania golf holiday begins with a flight from Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra, Brisbane or the Gold Coast. Therefore, you will need to arrive at one of these airports and catch a connecting flight to Hobart. However, you can also use the Spirit of Tasmania Ferries which connect Tasmania with Melbourne.
Tasmania is known as the ‘Wild Island State’ and away from the golf course you have the option to indulge in the fascinating history of the island, the vast wilderness regions, spectacular mountains, stunning beaches and an array of lovely islands.
Mount Field National Park is arguably the highlight and shows Tasmania at its very best. The diversity of vegetation and rich and unique wildlife, including the famous Tasmanian Devil, make this area of the island one not to miss during a Tasmania golf holiday.
However, you will need to tear yourself away from the golf courses to do any sightseeing and you may have a tough job, with three great Tasmania courses to enjoy. The Tasmanian Golf Club, Royal Hobart Golf Club and Launceston Country Club are three lovely golf courses and a real pleasure to play.
