Mount Maria Walk is a walk in Maria Island National Park.
8 hour walk, 3-5 hour ride, 16 km return. Grade 4.
At 711m, Mount Maria is the highest point on the island – a dolerite outcrop with sweeping views to the south towards Tasman Peninsula. The track begins south of Darlington near the mouth of Counsel Creek. It meanders through open woodlands ascending quite gently at first and ends with half an hour of scrambling over rocky debris and large boulders to reach the summit.
There are toilets and barbeque facilities available at Darlington at the start of your walk. Make sure to pack enough food and water for the day. Temperatures at the summit can be much cooler, so bring warmer layers and sturdy shoes for rock scrambles.
Please refer to the Parks and Wildlife Service Tasmania website (parks.tas.gov.au) for up-to-date information about this walk, alerts, closures, safe walking guidelines, leave no trace principles and National Park entry fees where applicable.
