Hop on over to Harbour Town and visit this out of the ordinary attraction, Australia's first 18 hole Glow-In-The-dark Miniature Golf course. Putt your way through Aussie icons lit up under special UV lights.

Explore the colourful Great Barrier Reef, get gobbled up by a crocodile, devoured by a Great White Shark, travel through the earthy outback, and putt your way up into the Kingswood Ute.
Get to the 18th hole and see if your score beats your competition, whether it's your friends, work team or romantic date.

On a Friday or Saturday, conclude your visit to GlowGolf by jumping on the obscene coffin ride, cleverly named 'The Last Ride.' Not your typical scary ride, 'The Last Ride' is a wooden casket on hydraulics that lets those that are interested in what it really feels like to buried alive. Experience the sounds, smells and sight of the journey from the funeral parlour to the grave.

Get utterly freaked out as you listen and smell the (lack of) air in the pitch black closed coffin. Listen to the drivers chat as they load you in the back of a vehicle, and take you on a wild and bumpy ride to the grave site. Arrive at the site and get ready to be thrown into a hole with dirt shoveled on you until all is silent. The scent of the earth of your final resting place and bugs attacking you will give you the absolute creeps. Just when you think all is lost, the lid flies open to a well welcomed breath of fresh air.

Not recommended for a first date, the coffin has an infrared camera with audio so people outside can watch your reaction to your fate.

GlowGolf is tailored for children, families, teenagers and adult Golfers of all experiences. Great for a rainy day, GlowGolf is based indoors at Melbourne Docklands just behind the Big Wheel.

Unless they have updated all the scenery and made the place bigger , this mini golf was the worst mini golf place we have played at , about 30 different places , this was definately the worst

sorry to say, NOT the original glow in the dark mini golf.
there was one at knox shopping centre before docklands was even built, also ballarat have one.
have to agree with kayep, the scenery was very poor - especially compared to knox.
i did however like the spin the wheel at the start of some holes, made it a little different.
would be fun for little children, but otherwise, a little dull for my liking. they could do so much more with it.

We took our children here they are 6, 7 and 12, the problem we find with a lot of courses is that they can take nearly two hours to play and the younger ones get bored and start to mess around, we found this ideal for our Children and it was short enough for them to play the whole course without becoming agitated, and parents with children playing minigolf will know exactly what I mean. It took us just over 50 minutes. We found the experience quite pleasant and will be returning in the next holidays and one of the little ones wants to have a birthday party there. I would recommend it for any family.
