This scenic portside town is the gateway to the wildlife sanctuary of Maria Island National Park.

Protected deep in Spring Bay, Triabunna is surrounded by beautiful beaches, coastal reserves and eucalyptus forest. Its big draw, however, is the abundance of fresh seafood. 

Triabunna’s relaxed pace of life is perfect for unwinding and adjusting to the rhythm of island time. The natural beauty of Triabunna is sometimes overlooked as travellers race to catch the Maria Island ferry, which crosses several times daily to Maria Island National Park, but food and nature lovers appreciate sitting on the dock of the bay. 

The bay is ideal for fishing and sailing, and the Tasmanian Seafarers Memorial is an interesting portal into the area's rich maritime past.


Triabunna is a 75min drive (86km) north-east of Hobart, and a 2hr 15min drive (187km) from Launceston.


Insider tips
  • Tuck into fresh seafood metres from the fishing boats, while taking in the view from the marina. 
  • The waters around Triabunna are some of the best temperate diving sites in the world, with mysterious kelp forests and diverse coral reefs to explore.
