The Maria Island 4 Day Walk

4 days - Guided Walk Package
Day 1 - Introducing Maria Island

Our team will transfer you to Triabunna, with a boat crossing via the sparkling waters of Mercury Passage to the isthmus of Maria Island. Here, enjoy lunch overlooking the crystal clear waters of Shoal Bay before walking to Casuarina Beach camp. In the afternoon explore the trail through the tall eucalypt forest, down to Haunted Bay.

In the evening, after a gourmet dinner, stroll along the beach at sunset with a glass of wine. Simple pleasures, surrounded by island beauty.

Distance: 8km

Day 2 - Stroll white, sandy beaches

Wake up to the chattering of wattle birds, watching first light stream in through the forest. After breakfast, start your journey along five incredible 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, arrive at White Gums camp for a refreshing swim. After the perfect day, relax with your fellow walkers, before enjoying a candlelit dinner surrounded by nature.

Distance: 13km

Day 3 - Journey to the heart of Maria Island

Today we head inland to the heart of Maria Island to discover the grand forests, wandering through the world’s largest stand of giant Tasmanian Blue Gums.

You can choose to climb the peaks of Mt Maria (711 metres) or Bishop and Clerk (a 599 metre climb through rare “cloud” rain forests) with views that are simply breathtaking.

By the afternoon, head into the historic settlement of Darlington where you’ll stay at heritage-listed Bernacchi House for a final feast amongst friends.

Distance: 9 – 17km

Day 4 - Explore the Northern Woodlands and Fossil Bay Cliffs

The final morning starts with a walk around the northern tip of Maria Island, via a variety of spectacular woodlands and forests with rare endemic birds, wallabies and wombats. Later we continue on to the dramatic Fossil Cliffs.

Heading back to Darlington, there is a last celebratory lunch before boarding the boat back to mainland Tasmania, with time to reflect on the past days getting to know Maria. Hopefully, amongst new friends and incredible memories that will last a lifetime.

Distance: 4km
