3 Day walk of Maria Island

If you are looking for a walking holiday in Tasmania you can't go past Maria Island on the east coast of Tasmania.

Mountainous in the interior and surrounded by stretches of beautiful white sandy beaches, aqua waters and limestone cliffs this island is a hidden gem unknown to many. Enjoy three days walking with your overnight bags carried for the entire journey leaving you free to soak up the spectacular scenery, admire the rich and abundant wildlife and take in the intriguing history.

Owner Mark Norek says "Maria Island holds a special place in my heart, I proposed to my wife Vicki on the top of the island's Bishop & Clerk summit. This island is pure heaven and has everything you would want in a walking holiday including spectacular scenery, abundant wildlife and so much natural beauty, it's one of Tasmania's little gems that is unknown to many Australians. I'm very passionate about sharing the secret of this magical place with our guests".

Our team is dedicated to providing our guests with an enriching experience and quality and interpretive tours. Our group sizes are small and intimate with a maximum of 10 people, we find this delivers a more personalised service, a great social environment and has less impact on the environment."

Maria Island Tour Itinerary Our 3 day itineraries provide ample time to hike across Maria Island covering all the sights as well as have plenty of time to relax and soak up the scenery and tranquility of this magical island.

Please note: Our itineraries are based on a maximum of 10 guests (not 4 as per other operators) - this we feel is the ideal size to give our guests both the personal attention they deserve and at the same time provide an enjoyable social environment on tour. As many of our tour guests tell us they have formed lifelong friendships with other walkers, we feel this social element is an important part of our tours. Of course if you would like to organise a private tour with your own group on a date of your choice we are happy to organise this for you too.
