The Walk - 4 Days on Maria

 

Overview Day 1 Day 2 Day 3 Day 4

 

 

There are 2 ways that you can access Maria Island, by ferry, or by a spectacular charter flight. The choice is yours.

Your 4 day Maria Island Guided Walk starts with a picturesque drive to Triabunna or you can choose to board a sensational scenic flight from Hobart to Maria Island via the spectacular sea cliffs of Tasman Island and Tasmania’s East Coast.

Once on Maria Island your guides will immerse you in the islands history and lead you on an amazing 4 day exploration. You’ll experience close encounters with wildlife and marvel at spectacular cliffs, beaches and Maria’s convict past.

The walking each day is gentle but reasonably good walking fitness is required to manage the daily distances.

Your pack will be light and you are only required to carry your personal belongings for 2 out of the 4 days. If you are unable to carry your pack, we can carry it for you.

Your accommodation is in large twin share Safari Tents with comfortable stretcher beds for 2 nights and 1 night in the converted Penitentiary Cell shared accommodation if available.

Your meals are of fresh local produce with 3 course dinners complimented with fine Tasmanian Wines.
