The Maria Island Walk


The four day Maria Island Walk is Tasmania's most recent, internationally acclaimed guided walk where small groups, a maximum of ten guests and two guides, enjoy a combination of Tasmania's renowned wilderness, heritage and gourmet delights. The Walk is a gentle and relaxing journey through one of Australia's most beautiful and tranquil National Parks, where guests explore fascinating convict sites by day and are pampered with superb meals and fine wines at night before they drift into a slumber to the sound of lapping waves.

Day By Day

Day 1 – The First Steps
Guests are picked up from their Central Hobart accommodation from 7.30am and taken to the Maria Island office nearby to meet fellow walkers and guides. Jackets and backpacks can be collected here. The group is then driven to Triabunna, about 90 minutes away, to board our exclusive boat which crosses Mercury Passage en route to Shoal Bay on the Island. Landing on the pristine beach just a short walk to the Casuarina Beach Camp, guests can relax around the camp or take a walk to the stunning Haunted Bay or Robey’s Farm. Delicious fresh Tasmanian produce and fine wines will be served by the guides in the camp and guests will stay overnight here. Approximately, the walking distance is 3km, or 12km if taking one of the afternoon walks.

Starting Accommodation: Casuarina Beach Camp (L, D)

Day 2 – Five Fabulous Beaches
After a leisurely and relaxed breakfast, there’s plenty of time to enjoy the surroundings before guests walk from Riedle Bay across the isthmus and stroll along five fabulous beaches. The convict cells at Point Lesueur and the ochre pit at Bloodstone Point prove fascinating viewing along the way. Arriving at White Gums Camp, guests will be entertained by native birds while enjoying delicious wines on the deck before being served a satisfying and delicious dinner. Approximately, the walking distance is 14km over flat grounds and firm sandy beaches.

Day 3 – Into the Heart, Up to the Heights
Today after breakfast, guests head inland to stunning forests and enjoy a wealth of wildlife. The gentle inland track passes Hopgrounds Beach and the Painted Cliffs before arriving at Bernacchi House in Darlington. For the more adventurous, the 711m summit of Mt. Maria calls, delivering absolutely breathtaking 360° views. Alternatively, a hike up Bishop and Clerk is another rewarding option. Tonight guests stay in historic Bernacchi House, enjoy hot showers and a beautiful dinner in a traditional classic dining room. Approximately, the walking distance is 6km or around 17km if one of the walks to the peak is taken.
