One of our best days out on our trip to Tasmania. We walked about 8 miles total and saw beautiful cliffs and so many wombats, kangaroos and birds. Also a very interesting historical site. We just took the 9 am ferry over and were ready...More

Wasn't sure I was going to make the early ferry driving down from Bicheno, but made it in the nick of time and then proceeded to have an absolutely magical time on this island. The combination of untouched wilderness, roaming wildlife (SO many wombats), isolation,...More

We loved this island so so so much. The ticket to Maria Island is not cheap at AUD45/pax but I assure you it is so worth it for a day of exploring a remote island with little sign of human life, but with Mother Nature...More

We loved our half day trip to Maria Island today, which we felt was plenty of time to initially explore and understand this beautiful place. We caught the 9am ferry over and the 2pm ferry back. During this time we did the Fossil Cliff Walk...More

We took the ferry here one morning. The ferry doesn't run everyday in winter so check before you go, because we didn't before we drove the first time... From the ferry we saw a sealion. On the island there were a lot of wombats, pademelons,...More

The tourist office in Triabunna where you buy the ferry tickets was very helpful and provided a map of the short walks that are easily done - we managed three quite comfortably in the six hours we had on the island. The commissariat store also...More

My family stayed at an airbnb in Orford the night before and it was only a 15 minutes drive to the Maria Island terminal the next morning. You can head straight to Orford from Hobart and I think it is about an hour's drive.

Is there any rental of bicycle there? Or only can go by foot? Is it worth it the area if I only have about 1/2 a day there.
