Have you heard of Maria Island? It is Chrissi's favorite place on earth! Check out our Instagram video for an impression.

Maria Island is an island located in the Tasman Sea just one short 30min ferry ride from Triabunna. This makes it an ideal destination for a day trip but you can also stay overnight.

It is a place of untouched nature and definitely one of the world’s best places to spot wombats in the wild. There are also no cars on the island, we would recommend to bring your own bike or rent one directly on the island.

You can also do the Bishop and Clerk track for a spectacular view. If you are interested to learn more about Tasmania’s colonial heritage then check out Darlington (small settlement on the island). Also visit the famous Painted Cliffs, a coastal attraction but keep in mind to go at low tide.


  • Bring enough water and food, because there are no shops on the island.
  • The best time to spot wildlife is early in the morning or late afternoon.
  • Watch out for snakes in the bushes, Chrissi almost stepped on one
