The destination

Maria Island’s pristine untouched beaches, the crystal clear waters of the surrounding Marine Reserve and scenery like the magnificent Mt Maria and Bishop and Clerk peaks will take your breath away.

You’ll wander through forests of magnificent blue and white gums, some of them over 400 years old and unique to Maria Island. You’ll step back in time and walk where convicts and explorers have walked before you. At the Fossil Cliffs you’ll see shellfish fossil beds unlike any other in the world.

Maria Island is also famous for its abundant wildlife, home to rare and endangered species like the Swift Parrot, Cape Barron Goose and the Tasmanian Devil.
