Recognised as one of Australia’s truly outstanding experiences, a 4-day guided walk on Maria Island off the east coast of Tasmania, is a feast for all senses – a blend of rare wildlife, fascinating history, island tranquillity and gourmet delights!
It is a Noah’s Ark for rare animals and birds, some of which are found nowhere else. It is also Australia’s newest World Heritage listing due to its intact convict settlement at Darlington.
Small groups of just eight guests and two friendly guides explore the pristine beaches, tall ancient forests and World Heritage sites by day, carrying only a light pack and walking a total of 30 kilometres (20 miles) over four days. At night you’ll enjoy a candlelit gourmet dinner, served with a selection of delicious Tasmanian wines, and a good night’s sleep. The first two nights are spent in secluded wilderness camps and the final night in heritage-listed Bernacchi House.
