There is no vehicle access to Maria Island – you can explore the island on foot or by bike.
Most of the major sites are within an hour’s walk of Darlington and the ferry. From a casual stroll around Darlington, to scrambling up boulders to the summit of Mount Maria, and just about everything in between, there are short walks, day walks and overnight walks to suit all levels of ability.
One of the best ways to experience this island sanctuary is by bike. You can get around faster so you can travel further and see more of the island. Biking is allowed on all roads on the island, but not on the walking tracks. You can bring your own or rent one on the island. You can reserve bikes online ahead of time. Tasmanian law requires you to wear a bike helmet.
