The Tasmanian Open will be held in June in Hobart (see the post above). I suspect you may have glanced at last year's event if you were browsing the website. It is unlikely to be FIDE Rated, but a formal decision will probably be made in March. Not only is it possible to enter, it is compulsory! Thanks for your interest.
