***Important Update regarding Covid 19***

For those that have already booked, or intending to book for the Supreme 2020, please consider the latest advice from Spirit of Tasmania here

This is an evolving situation and we will keep you updated as we know more.

Last updated: 24 March 2020

The kind folk at Spirit of Tasmania are on board (see what I did there?) with the 2020 Supreme Championships, Tasmania.

Only available to competitors, you can access fares cheaper than what they are online. But like anything there are rules, so read on to find out how you can access the best sailing and on-board accommodation fares available. Limited availability so book yourselves and your dogs to guarantee your place.

They’re also keen for you to stay a while in Tasmania and have made the offer available between 17/09/20 to 25/11/20 – we’re a friendly mob so please think about coming along to our pre- and post-events or just tootling about the state – plenty of dog friendly accom and camping. We can help you with more info on that if needed.

And now for the rules:

You must call the Spirit of Tasmania Customer Contact Centre on 13 20 10 and identify yourself at the commencement of the call as attending the 2020 Supreme Sheepdog Championship event and you would like access to the Special Event Fares.

You can’t access this offer online due to the requirement of ventilated space for your dogs on board BUT they have waived the booking fee that normally applies to bookings made via their Customer Contact Centre – so you get to talk to a real person to make your booking.

The discount is applicable to new bookings only and cannot be applied retrospectively to existing bookings.

The fine print:

  • All passenger, accommodation and vehicle space is subject to availability at time of booking/amending.
  • Please keep in mind fares do fluctuate and are subject to change until payment has been made and a booking number and e-ticket provided.
  • Full payment is required at the time of booking.
  • Bookings for this event are valid for travel between 17/09/20 to 25/11/20

When booking on the Special Event offer the following fare types will be offered (subject to availability):-
