The whole of the island is a National Park and a sanctuary for rare and unusual Australian wildlife.
Its tranquillity combined with the natural beauty, wildlife and history make it a unique and special place
Maria Island is located off the Eastern coast of Tasmania, just a half hour boat ride from the town of Triabunna (86km NE of Hobart).
The Island has a fascinating history with a world heritage convict settlement as well as world rated fossil beds, all accessible during your 4 day walk. The walk is mostly at sea level and considered easy – on firm beaches and tracks. You average around 2 kms an hour, allowing for plenty of time to explore, swim and chat. Where else can you expect to encounter a Tasmania devil, Cape Barren goose, echidna, pademelon or wombat in their natural environment?
This is a seasonal journey operating October to April in small groups of up to 10 with 2 accompanying guides. Warmest temperatures are expected December to March with an average high of 21 degrees and low of 13. The months of October and April are quieter with comparably less rainfall – these are great months to walk if you like crisp mornings and a glass of red wine at night! A modified itinerary is on offer for the winter months.
Your holiday includes:
Return vehicle and boat transfers from Hobart to Maria Island
2 nights accommodation in eco cabins at the exclusive Wilderness Camp
1 night at Bernacchi House
All food and Tasmania wines with dinner
Four days guided walking
