Maria Island offers a unique combination of abundant wildlife, Australian convict and early industrial history and multi-day bushwalking opportunities. A four-day itinerary takes us to the far southern end of Maria Island as well to the summits of Mt Maria (711m) and Bishop and Clerk (620m), and to the Fossil Cliffs by bike.
A spectacular circular day walk that combines Shadow and Forgotten Lakes with an ascent of Mt Rufus (1,416m asl) and a side-trip to Little Hugel (1,274m asl). Two mountain peaks, alpine lakes, rainforest and incredible displays of flowering heath.
The hike from Narcissus Hut to Cynthia Bay along Lake St Clair is the last (or first!) section of the Overland Track, and also makes a pleasant day walk. Although it’s a relatively boring walk in its own right – Shadow Lake circuit or Mt Rufus makes for a better day walk.
One of Tasmania’s 60 Great Short Walks, the hike to Meander Falls can be done as a circular walk, taking in a variety of terrain and a number of smaller (but equally impressive falls) by taking the Split Rock Track back to the start.
