Spend the day exploring a remote, rugged and remarkable island via a network of walking trails. No cars, no roads and wombats galore!
It’s hard to put the magic of Maria Island into words. Just an hour’s drive east from Hobart plus a 30 minute ferry ride, this otherworldly island keeps its own time, far from the demands of modern life.
As soon as you step off the boat you’ll notice the quietness, the wildness, the sense of history. There are no vehicles here but plenty of traffic; Maria Island island is home to vast numbers of wombats, wallabies, Cape Barren Geese and Tasmanian Devils that wander all over the place.
Explore the world heritage listed Darlington settlement, a beautifully preserved probational convict camp that’s considered the best in the world. Walk with us to the Painted Cliffs, an easy 4.5km round trip, seeing surreal and colourful sandstone formations up close. And we finish with the Fossil Cliffs walk, another easy 4.5km circuit, traversing the western side of the island over windswept hills and cliffs of 300 million year old fossils.
Along the way there’s plenty of space to play in the rockpools, relax on the beach, spot local wildlife and take photos of the stunning scenery, proving it wasn’t all just a dream.
This experience requires a minimum number of participants to go ahead. Maximum of 20 participants.
All tour participants will be participating in outdoor, active activities and therefore subject to the outdoor weather conditions of the day.
• Comfortable trail walking/ running shoes suitable for outdoor active activity
• Clothes to suit outdoor conditions (warm layers are a good idea)
• Waterproof jacket (just in case)

• Water Bottle, Snacks, Lunch (or buy it on the day)
• Day pack with everything you will need for the day

Due to the tight timeline to reach the ferry we recommend you bring your own food supplies for the day ahead. There are no shops on Maria, so make sure you bring enough food and a large refillable water bottle for your day out. We do provide a quick stop along the drive at a local Bakery for you to purchase lunch/sandwhiches/rolls to take with you. There is coffee and snacks available on the ferry, and a fish and chips van available as we depart the ferry at the end of the day.
This experience takes place at Maria Island National Park departing Hobart, TAS.

That’s 10% of the Australian population! When we started ‘doing’ experiences in 2001, Facebook didn’t exist; the iPod had just been invented; John Howard was Prime Minister; and Destiny's Child were popular (yikes!). We’ve been at this business of experiences for quite a while, so put your trust in us to show you a good time.
The RedBalloon Price Guarantee does not apply to experiences involving accommodation or Experience Providers' own conditional sales.
