Itinerary

Then we will drive drive up the East Coast to Triabunna as you approach Triabunna you may catch glimpses of the silhouette of the renowned National Park of Maria Island. At Triabunna we transfer with a 30 minute ferry trip across Mercury Passage, docking at Darlington on Maria Island. Maria Island is one of Tasmania’s least visited yet most wonderful locations – you will be completely captivated from the moment you step ashore. The island has a rich history from Aboriginal habitation, to convict penal station, farming, and the National Park. After a light picnic lunch with choices of lunch meats and fresh salads made by the guides we will head back to Triabunna and begin our cycle with views of stunning unspoilt coastline. You may like to stop in at one of the numerous sandy beaches like Mayfield bay, or Hampsons Bay and sheltered rocky coves that are dotted along the coast. Look out for the famous ‘Spiky Bridge’, one of many remnants of Tasmania’s convict past. Passing through quaint rural hamlets and picturesque country fields. We will continue onto Swansea for your accommodation either cycle to the accommodation or driving depending on the groups wants.
