Beautiful island, nice ferry trip and amazing scenery. Be sure to hire a bike before you go, as there are limited options on the island. The ride along the coast is beautiful, but be careful if you take the inland path - it is ridiculously...More

Maria Island is a very interesting place to visit. Being so isolated, you need to bring your own water and food (especially important if you are camping). There are beautiful walks and a sense of quiet you don't get very often in life. However, while...More

This is a beautiful place. Wombats are so plentiful in the late afternoon that they resemble flocks of grazing sheep. With the help of their cousins - the kangaroos, they keep the vegetation well shorn. In fact in parts the island looks overgrazed. Cape Barren...More

We caught the 10:30 ferry over and the 3:30 back. We found it to be plenty of time although we didn’t see everything there was to offer! Hire bikes, that way you can see a lot more in a shorter space of time. It really...More

Maria Island is unspoilt due mainly to their policy of no shops and what you take over you bring back including waste. It is a 30 min ride from Triabunna on a well-appointed fast ferry which can handle bikes and all your camping gear if...More

We went there on the first ferry at 9 am and returned at 5 pm. It wasn't enough since we rode bikes from Darlington all the way down to Encampment Cove, including lunch and water stops and beach time. The first half has better sea...More

Was there for a day trip. Nearing Maria Island, you’ll be greeted by pristine, glistening waters that make it look like a true paradise- hard to believe it was a place for convicts! Honestly torn between giving it a 4 and 5 stars mainly because...More

What an interesting location; history, geography, scenery and beaches. The walking trails are well maintained, marked and supported with interpretative signs. If you only have a day make the most of it and see what you can, but you really need a couple of days...More

We did a day trip with our mountain bikes to Maria Island. We started south & saw the painted cliffs. Once we passed there (and all the walkers) we were pretty much away from the crowds. We wanted to head down to the southern part...More

Maria Island is a 25-minute ferry ride from Triabunna. The return fare was $50 an adult. In high season you may need to book passage but this can be done easily online. The island has been used by Europeans for various purposes including a prison,...More

I don’t think there’ll be any other options near the ferry terminal however if you’re coming up from Hobart and have a vehicle you’d be best hiring from there.
