Maria Island Walk

Tasmania’s multi-award winning Maria Island Walk has been named as one of the 12 founding members of the recently launched Australian Wildlife Collection, by Tourism Australia.

Just a short boat ride off Tasmania’s east coast, Maria Island is a sanctuary often referred to as the state’s ‘Noah’s Ark’ thanks to its abundance of rare and unusual species, such as wombats, Tasmanian Devils, Cape Barren geese, kangaroos, wallabies and more than 125 species of birds.

The Maria Island Walk is a three-night, four-day guided hike winding through national park landscape, unspoilt beaches, a heritage-listed convict settlement, lush rainforests and mountains, taking in the dramatic sea cliffs of Fossil Bay, the peaks of Mt Maria, and the largest stand of giant Tasmanian blue gums.
