Maria Island Walk
4 days/3 nights


Tasmania’s multi-award winning Maria Island Walk is recognised as one of Australia’s outstanding walking experiences. Set in a beautiful world heritage listed island national park this 4 day walk is a delightful blend of rare wildlife, convict heritage, elegant accommodation and candlelit gourmet dining. Explore this fascinating island; walking pristine beaches, magnificent forests, and epic mountain peaks. Small groups of just 10 guests and two guides enjoy gentle walking by day and candlelit dining at night.

Day 1 – The first steps…

You’ll be transferred from Hobart to the historic coastal town of Triabunna where your boat will take you across the sparkling waters to the isthmus of Maria Island. Set foot on a pristine, untouched beach, exactly as explorers did years earlier and enjoy lunch overlooking the crystal azure waters of Shoal Bay. Walk to the tranquil Casuarina Beach camp and  explore the trail through the tall eucalypt forest down to the spectacular Haunted Bay.

This evening, after a fine Tasmanian gourmet dinner, stroll along the beach at sunset with a glass of wine, delighting in the day you’ve had and excited by what lies ahead.

Distance: 8 kms

Day 2 – Five fabulous beaches

Wake up to the busy chattering of the wattle birds and, from the comfort of your bed, watch the morning sun sparkle through the forest. After a delicious breakfast, it’s time to start your journey along five beautiful beaches. Watch dolphins play in the surf and sea eagles soaring overhead as you walk past the carpet of exotic shells lining the water’s edge. By late afternoon you arrive at White Gums camp for a refreshing swim. After the perfect day, you can relax with your fellow walkers, before enjoying a candlelit dinner of the finest Tasmanian food and wine.

Distance: 13 kms

Day 3 – Into the heart, up to the heights

Today you’ll be guided inland to the heart of the Island to discover the rich greens of the grand forests. Wander through the world’s largest stand of giant Tasmanian blue gums and can choose to climb the peaks of Mt Maria or Bishop and Clerk. It’s a 700 metres climb through rare “cloud” rain forests. As you can imagine, the views are simply breathtaking. This evening you arrive at Tasmanian’s fascinating World Heritage listed settlement of Darlington where you’ll stay at the elegant colonial Bernacchi House and enjoy a final night banquet with fine wine and conversation.

Distance: 9-17 kms

Day 4 – The Fabulous Top End

Your final day begins with a delicious breakfast followed by a walk around the northern tip of Maria Island. The walk takes you through a variety of spectacular woodlands and forests with rare endemic birds, wallabies and wombats on show. Continue on to the dramatic sea cliffs of Fossil Bay and then head down to the remarkable fossils at Fossil Cliffs. Arriving back at Darlington we enjoy a celebratory farewell lunch before boarding the boat to go back to the mainland Tasmania and Hobart taking with you incredible memories and stories of an amazing four days, walking in Tasmania, spent in a very special place.
