Maria Island 4-Day Walk, Freycinet Lodge Stay & Luxury Wineglass Bay Cruise

The coast of Tasmania is a beauty to behold – see it from a new perspective on this eight-day small-group tour (max. 10 travellers). Answer the call of the wild and embark on a journey that starts in Hobart and travels through Maria Island and Freycinet National Park, with one-of-a-kind stays for an experience like no other.

Be enthralled by the sheer beauty of the peninsula on a three-hour Tasman Island wilderness cruise along the spectacular coastline between Port Arthur and Eaglehawk Neck, spotting waterfalls, seals and migrating whales along the way, followed by a tour of the Port Arthur Historic Site, one of Australia’s best preserved convict-era heritage sites. Next, take a private catamaran through the sparkling waters of Mercury Passage to the extraordinary Maria Island, where your all-inclusive, four-day walking adventure begins. A destination so beautiful it truly must be seen to be believed, Maria Island is rich in fascinating history, boasts outstanding wildlife viewing opportunities and is home to a number of remarkable geological wonders. Here, you’ll stroll picturesque coastal and inland trails, passing rare cloud rainforests and Tasmanian blue gums while listening to the sounds of the forest and the lapping of the waves. Then, discover the jaw-dropping beauty of Freycinet National Park where dramatic pink granite peaks, secluded bays and white sandy beaches await. Take in the beauty of Wineglass Bay from the upper deck of a luxurious catamaran and enjoy rarely seen vistas from the water.
