We need to publish more information about things to do in Tasmania with kids. It’s such a popular topic… we can hardly keep up the pace! We do like to provide articles that suit a broad cross-section of readers though, so today we’re talking mini golf in Tasmania. Something that’s fun for everyone; a few hours of gentle activity that won’t bust the holiday budget, with both outdoor and indoor options.
Mini Golf in Tasmania: North and South
At the risk of sounding like a broken record, we only ever mention places we’ve been to in person. First-hand experience, and all that. We appreciate there would be many, many more opportunities to play mini golf in Tasmania, so please… if you have a burning desire to see your favourite putt putt venue promoted, have them contact Think Tasmania for inclusion on our website.
As a young kid growing up in a small rural community, it was an adventure to visit Adelaide. Our family didn’t travel often or far-afield, but every now and then we’d venture to the city during school holidays. On those occasions, we’d have access to cinemas, ten pin bowling alleys, shopping centres and ice-skating rinks. Families can now add laser-game arenas to that all-exciting list, along with hi-tech video-game parlours.
A constant across several generations and still just as popular as ever… a round or two of mini golf (or putt putt, whatever your naming preference). Here’s four options that we’ve tried so far in Tasmania: two in the north and two in the south, covering indoor and outdoor courses.
Tassie Tiger Mini Golf
Part of the Launceston Indoor Sports Arena, Tassie Tiger Mini Golf is a fun and professionally-designed outdoor course, built to challenge every standard of player from the beginner to the putt putt expert. Also on site, visitors will find a comfortable lounge area complete with cafe selling good coffee and a variety of light meals. It’s also the location of the Treasure Island Play Centre, an indoor adventure park suitable for kids from one to fourteen years of age. The staff are friendly and helpful and the facility is extremely popular, a particular winner during regular tennis tournaments held on location.

Kingsway Crazy Golf
If it’s raining in Launceston on the very day a yearning for a game of mini golf strikes you, try an indoor version. We’ve done just that at Kingsway Crazy Golf and found the centre to be a fun way to pass some time. Also boasting a diverse 18-hole course, players will be faced with a series of challenges, sometimes surrounded by glow-in-the-dark graffiti and flashing lights. If the putt putt doesn’t wear the juniors out, a turn on the jumping castle just might. Admission also includes a mirror maze and patrons can chance their arm on the game machines or buy drinks and snacks from vending machines.

Barilla Putt and Play
Barilla Putt and Play is part of the caravan park complex on Richmond Road, about halfway between central Hobart and Richmond, the heritage village at the heart of the Coal River Valley’s wine region. We’ve played mini golf here on more than one occasion, and found the picturesque 19-hole course to be well-maintained with a variety of obstacles and hazards. There’s canteen facilities inside, where players also collect their golf sticks and golf balls, ready to commence a little healthy competition.

Putters Adventure Golf
A ten-minute drive from Hobart will see you at Putters Adventure Golf in Moonah. The complex is pretty impressive, with multi-level options featuring tricky and unexpected quirks in the courses. We chose the indoor option due to inclement weather conditions, but the views over the outdoor course showed landscaped gardens complete with flowing streams and a waterfall.
Free onsite parking is plentiful, and the clubhouse offers drinks and snacks. The young staff members were all really friendly; and I have a vague recollection of a playground for youngsters as well. Someone may be able to confirm or deny this aspect for us.
