We took a Cruise/Walk Tour of Maria Island (only a leisurely 1.30 hour drive from Hobart). The cruise (3 hrs duration) starts from Triabunna with a short crossing to Maria Island & drop of for those passengers not taking the cruise. Cruise commences in a clockwise direction to Mistaken Cape and lastly dropping anchor at Riedle Bay before a return journey the same way we came. The scenery throughout is simply amazing with magnificent high cliffs of varying rock formations/fossil cliffs + sea caves including one which the cruise boat went entirely inside (Awesome). Add to that a host of spring fed waterfalls some of which came out of the rock face. Saw one lonely seal sunning itself on the rock. On our return did a walking tour to the solitary buildings on the Island at the Darlington Settlement. There are ruins a plenty from many years ago when it was a penal colony inhabited by convicts. Huge history surrounds the Island. No roads as such (quite unique) but plenty of walking trails and accommodation to take it all in. Loved the day and would highly recommend to any visitor to Tasmania.
