Maria Island
Gray Line Day Tour 766

Dont miss this opportunity to leave your ordinary world behind and experience something truly extraordinary - encounter Maria Island!

Located off Tasmania's East Coast, Maria Island is only a short trip by ferry from Triabunna, but as far from ordinary as you can imagine. Rich in indigenous and European history, abundant in wildlife, boasting spectacular views and remarkable geological features, the entire island is a National Park, managed by the Tasmanian Parks and Wildlife Service.

Highlights of this tour

  • Leave Hobart and travel through the Historic town of Richmond and along the scenic east cost of Tasmania, to Triabunna - the ferry's departure point
  • Ride onboard the new 30 metre monohull ferry (Encounter Maria Island) across the Mercury Passage, keeping an eye out for playful dolphins and migrating whales
  • Enjoy morning tea onboard during the short journey to Darlington Bay.
  • Familiarise yourself with Maria Island on an introductory guided walking tour by one of the Park's rangers, then there is free time to explore at your own pace.
  • Perhaps choose one of our optional extras or find a spot to enjoy your packed lunch on this idyllic island paradise.
  • Explore the township of Darlington - one of 11 convict sites in Australia inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List
  • Enjoy short walks on the island, explore the fascinating Fossil Cliffs or Painted Cliffs (weather permitting).
  • You may be lucky enough to come across some of the local wildlife, which includes forester kangaroos, wombats, Tasmanian devils, Cape Barron geese, rare birds and pademelons to name a few
