Maria Island was the best day of my 5 holidays to Tasmania. We did a one day cruise with eastcoastcruises. Really did have morning tea with a colony of seals, cruised with dolphins, visited amazing caves, and then patted a wombat on Maria Island. The...More

What a fantastic place. We spent a glorious day on the island - visiting the old buildings and learning about the convict past, walking through woodland, and relaxing on the beach. Some fascinating rock formations, loads of wombats, and birdlife. We all loved the place.

I wanted to go to Maria Island to see some wombats. It ended up being the best day of our holiday (and we visited a lot of places). You can see the wombats up close during the day, see kangaroos, cape barren geese,... and the...More

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

Not that I am aware of. Think most people just park on the wharf area. Adjacent to the wharf there is a hotel and a free RV camping area. Both of these offer free camping for caravans and RV’s which you might consider... 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.
