Combining rare wildlife, convict heritage, and elegant accommodation, you'll truly enjoy the multi-award winning Maria Island walk by day and candlelit gourmet dining at night.
Just a few kilometres off Tasmania's east coast, Maria Island is 100% national park with a population
of just two park rangers and their one car. This World Heritage Listed island is a sanctuary, and a Noah's Ark for rare Tasmanian birds and animals including an introduced population of disease-free Tasmanian devils.
The Maria Island Walk is a soft adventure led by warm, friendly and knowledgeable local guides.
The packs are light, the food is fresh and local, the wine is Tasmania's best, and a comfortable bed each night awaits. The walk itself is light and undemanding with options to add challenge as desired. You don't need to be an experienced hiker to enjoy it.
Guests stay overnight in two delightful wilderness campsites, both a stone's throw away from pristine, white-sand beaches. These beaches are the perfect place to unwind with a glass of wine, enjoy a barefoot stroll exploring for rare shells, or a swim in the turquoise waters that grace the island's shores.
On the final night, guests of the Maria Island Walk stay in a heritage house in Darlington, a UNESCO World Heritage site nestled on the northern tip of the island. Once a busting penal settlement with over 600 convicts, Darlington is now home to a medley of well-preserved historical buildings. It's also an excellent place to see wombats!
