Triabunna, the gateway to Maria Island National Park, is a short drive from Orford. This is a town rich in local history that offers a range of great coastal holiday experiences.

From Triabunna’s marina, you can join a cruise to Maria Island, board a fishing or sightseeing charter in the Mercury Passage, or go sailing or boating in Spring Bay. This part of the coast is a prime fishing area, and Triabunna is well known for its delicious, locally-caught fish and chips. Buy some to enjoy al fresco as you watch boats come and go, and make sure you visit a local seafood producer to sample fresh blue mussels and scallops, grown in the east coast’s deep, cold offshore waters.

There are several walks in and around Triabunna—explore the area’s beautiful beaches or take a stroll in the nearby coastal reserves, including Pelican Walk, which begins near the marina. Take the self-guided Discovery Walk from the Triabunna Visitor Centre to see the town’s preserved convict-era buildings, visit the Tasmanian Seafarers Memorial, and browse the town’s shops and galleries. Or, simply relax with a coffee and snack in a welcoming cafe.

Maria Island National Park is a short boat journey from Triabunna. Take a day or more to visit this extraordinary island, which combines World Heritage-listed convict history with abundant native wildlife and diverse natural landscapes.
