The Maria Island Walk

The Maria Island Walk is a delightful four day guided walk that combines rare Tasmanian wildlife, spectacular scenery and fascinating history. The walk is recognised as one of Australia’s outstanding experiences and has won nine national and 13 state tourism awards.
Set on a World Heritage-listed island national park (with a resident population of just two park rangers and their one car), their small groups of just 10 guests and two friendly guides explore the pristine beaches, tall ancient forests and heritage convict sites by day and then each night relax with candlelight dining and exclusive elegant accommodation.
The first two nights are spent in secluded wilderness camps and the final night in heritage-listed Bernacchi House in Darlington.
Maria Island is described as a ‘Noah’s Ark’ for rare Tasmanian animals and birds including Tasmanian devils, wombats and a variety of rare kangaroos and wallabies.
A “pack-free” option is available for walkers who do not wish to carry a six to eight kilogram pack on the walk.
The all-inclusive package starts and finishes in Hobart with departures from October to April.
A three day “Winter Escape” trip is also offered between June to August.
The Maria Island Walk is a member of Great Walks of Australia and Australian Wildlife Journeys.

We acknowledge the Aboriginal people who continue to care for this country today. We pay our respects to their elders, past and present. We honour their stories, songs, art, and culture, and their aspirations for the future of their people and these lands. We respectfully ask that tourism be a part of that future.
