There's much to love about a winter experience on The Maria Island Walk's newly-introduced 'Winter Escape Walk', a shorter experience than its traditional offering held over two nights and three days. In small groups of up to 8 guests only, start the day with a glorious sunrise summit walk, watching the sun's rays touch the island. Spend leisurely days discovering Maria's beauty, and learning more about its world heritage listed convict history. Spot the wombats, Tasmanian devils, Cape Barren geese, kangaroos and other abundant wildlife that is largely undisturbed and even more accessible during winter. Evenings are spent in cosy comfort at Bernacchi House in Darlington. Enjoy a social, hosted dinner in the historic house, with a three-course feast hand-prepared to showcase the best of local produce paired with fine Tasmanian wines. The Maria Island Walk is a Wild Bush Luxury experience and is a member of Great Walks of Australia and Australian Wildlife Journey Selected winter dates June to August (subject to availability).
