Encounter Maria Island is the official ferry operator to and from Maria Island National Park. All available sailings are listed online at their website encountermaria.com.au

Located off Tasmania’s East Coast, Maria Island is only about 30 minutes by ferry from Triabunna, and as far from ordinary as you can imagine. Rich in indigenous and European history, abundant in wildlife, boasting spectacular views and remarkable geological features, the entire island is a National Park, managed by the Tasmanian Parks and Wildlife Service. There are no shops or fancy hotels, and limited places to charge your precious devices. So come prepared. Maybe even turn your phone off – gasp! Accommodation is available in the old penitentiary building at Darlington, and there are a number of camp sites on the island. Leave your ordinary world behind and experience something extraordinary – encounter Maria Island.
