2021 Great Eastern Wine Week

The Great Eastern Wine Walk

The three day Great Eastern Wine Walk with the award-winning Maria Island Walk is a delightful blend of rare wildlife, fascinating history, island tranquillity and gourmet delights. Set on a beautiful island national park off the east coast, small groups of just eight guests and two friendly guides explore the pristine beaches, tall ancient forests and world heritage sites by day and then each night relax with candlelit dining, fine Tasmanian wine and elegant accommodation. Maria Island is a Noah’s Ark for rare animals and birds; some of which are found nowhere else. It’s the wombat capital of the world, with an abundance of the “fluffy boulders” roaming the island. It is also one of Australia’s UNESCO World Heritage listings with its intact convict settlement at Darlington. Each night is spent in the warmth and comfort of heritage listed Bernacchi House, where guests enjoy twin share accommodation, hot showers, fresh linen; and recline by wood fires and a piano whilst waiting for a gourmet banquet each night. Warm up by the roaring fire with a glass of fine Tasmanian wine after exploring Darlington and surrounds during the day. All-inclusive three-day walk, with optional transfers from Hobart.
