The Story

Palawa Tasmanian’s have held wukaluwikayna as sacred spiritual gateway since the beginning of time. Situated in the lands and waters of the Oyster Bay Nation the  original local  people observed transient  arrivals of the first Europeans.  Explorer Abel Tasman named the island  Maria in 1642 after Maria van Dieman, wife of Anthony van Diemen then 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 in 1972.
