Tasmania’s acclaimed Maria Island Walk, was recently judged the nation’s top Adventure Tourism operation for the third time at the 2012 Qantas Australian Tourism Awards (having won in 2011 and 2008).
The Maria Island Walk is a delightful blend of world heritage history, rare wildlife and tranquil island bliss. Where small groups and two friendly guides enjoy gentle walking by day and gourmet, candlelit dining and elegant accommodation each night.
Maria is also known as Tasmania’s Noah’s Ark and a population of healthy Tasmanian devils was recently released there as insurance against their potential extinction. Ian Johnstone said “Devils are the world’s largest carnivorous marsupial and theirintroduction adds another fascinating dimension to the island’s attractions”.
The walk which celebrates its tenth season, has recently expanded to take groups of ten guests and two guides. Starting and finishing in Hobart (also home of the acclaimed MONA art gallery) the walks departure daily from October to April.
It is a the perfect short break holiday for the discerning guest.
