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.

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.
