World Heritage Listed Maria Island National Park is a gem in the crown of Tasmania’s East Coast, a mixture of remote wildness, convict ruins, sapphire waters and pure white beaches rimmed by marine conservation reserve. A Tasmanian eBike Maria Island Adventure explores the stories of the Island’s people and environment that make Maria unique.
All tours are on a private basis, customised to the needs and interests of guests.
A Tasmanian eBike Maria Island Adventure shares the stories of contact between Tasmanian Aboriginal people and the first European explorers. Abel Tasman named the island Maria in 1642 after Maria van Dieman, wife of Anthony van Diemen, Governor-General of the Dutch East Indies in Batavia. Your story-based adventure connects you to the island’s convict inhabitants and their struggles to escape, along with the pioneering spirit of 19th century Italian entrepreneur, viticulturist and industrialist Diago Bernacchi and the visionary wildlife conservationists responsible for the protection of Maria as a National Park.
A Maria Adventure is an all-encompassing expedition exploring the trail network and stories of Maria Island, its coast hinterland forests, magnificent beaches and World Heritage listed cultural sites. Your adventure will accommodate the weather and wind conditions of the day to support an experience that encapsulates the stories and tastes of Wild Tasmania, accompanied by lovingly crafted Tasmanian gourmet produce, catered picnic-style during the day.
