Grand Opening for Cape Wickham and Ocean Dunes
With the official opening set for the Melbourne Cup Long Weekend, King Island is going to be a busy little island with Vortex Air flying in 8 aircraft full of avid golfers. Early reviews of both Cape Wickham and Ocean Dunes are nothing short of glowing.
Cape Wickham has been a long time in the making. Andrew Purchase first aquired the land for Cape Wickham back in 2011 with construction starting in 2013. Now finally on the 30th of October 2015 Cape Wickham officially opens its doors to the public.
