A Day On Maria

A trip to Tasmania wouldn't be complete without doing a day tour to Maria Island.
Maria Island is a National Park and a former probation station. A convict station was first established on the island in 1825 preceding the establishment of Port Arthur.
The convict era buildings are well preserved and were built by the convicts themselves.
Our day tour pieces together the past, talks about the 1st settlers of Maria and takes you to magical places like the Painted Cliffs and Skipping Ridge.
The walking is gentle, you'll see abundant wildlife such as Cape Barren Geese, Native Hens, Forester Kangaroos, Pademelons and Wombats. Tours leave Hobart daily November through to April.
