Exceeded our expectations - we saw Tassie Devils, a Potoroo, and innumerable cute little padmelons and wombats as well as the usual Roos just around the campsite, and identified nearly 40 species of bird, several unique to Tassie. Plus a couple of moderately strenuous hikes...More

After a 30 minute boat trip from Triabunna we were met with abundant wild life, historic remains of early Settlement and stunning scenery. The Painted Cliffs walk took us about an hour and a half. Bicycles are available to hire to do longer tracks. Some...More

Wombats everywhere!! For a nature lover of wildlife especially, like me paradise. Saw Kangaroos moving from the bush down to the open ground mid afternoon. Walked in the ocean in the Bay round to painted rocks. Glorious! Probably the highlight of my Tasmanian trip.

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

A really lovely national park. We spent 2 days in Cradle Mt and were excited about seeing 2 wombats. Here, they were too many to count and all over the island roaming. The island is beautiful and unspoiled with few facilities but it’s definitely worth...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.
