Special Northern Tasmania golf touring packages

Special Northern Tasmania golf touring packages

Northern Tasmania, with Launceston as its city base, has so much to offer keen golfers and tourists to this region of Tasmania.

Firstly, the golf courses are special … especially Barnbougle !

Barnbougle Dunes and Barnbougle Lost Farm golf courses are locate in a remote part of northern Tasmania and are gaining international acclaim for the pure links golfing experience that is reminiscent of the great links courses of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

Although only 10 years old, these courses rank as the best public access courses in Australia, such is the quality of the layouts.


International Golf Specialists have targeted these magnificent courses as an integral base for fully independent and packaged golf tours to Tasmania. As an official Australian golf tour operator, we can package these courses with affordable and comfortable accommodation on-course and also in Launceston. We can also arrange private transfers or hire car rentals.

There are many other things to do when visiting Northern Tasmania. Food and wine figures prominently in Tasmanian tourism. There is a world-renown wine precinct within the Tamar Valley, with wineries such as Pipers Brook, Janz and Ninth Island producing world standard wine, with top class restaurants and wine cellars. A wonderful wine touring trail has been developed and was rated as one of the “Top 10 Wine Routes in the World” by Essential Travel magazine (UK), June 2011.

We can also include other golf courses of the region in a golfing package including Country Club Tasmania (Thompson / Wolveridge); Launceston Golf Club and Riverside Golf Club to make it a complete golf touring experience.

While the summer months offer the best weather conditions for golf, Northern Tasmania has four distinct seasons, and can be enjoyed all year round.

Contact International Golf Specialists and let us prepare a golfing itinerary that we guarantee will be both memorable and great value.
