Getting there

One of the many walks on Maria Island, which is reached by a regular ferry from the town of Triabunna (multiple daily services in summer; less frequent in winter). The distances for this walk are based on starting at Frenchs Farm campground - if starting at Darlington it would be about 46km return via the Coast Road (feasible by bike but a very long day-walk).

Route/Trail notes

From Darlington head south along the Coast Road, and turn onto the Inland Track just after Counsel Creek. After crossing two bridges, the junction with the Mount Maria Track is reached. This bush track ascends initially through eucalypt forest and then over a scree field to the summit.

Permits/Costs 

There is a cost for the ferry to reach Maria Island. A National Parks Pass is also required`
