Hike eastern coastal trails to spectacular clifftop vistas
Maria Island and Freycinet National Park are jewels in Tasmania’s already studded crown of coastal wonders, and on this hiking adventure, you will be able to discover both and more in all the East Coast’s wild beauty. From Hobart, spend four days hiking some of the southern state’s best coastal walks, including part of the Three Capes Track, the Fossil Cliffs and Painted Cliffs loops and to the awe-inspiring Wineglass Bay. With a knowledgeable leader joining you each step of the way, plus a selection of group dinners included in your itinerary, Tasmania’s East Coast will no doubt delight in this active escape.
Navigate the scenic Cape Freycinet isthmus on foot, marvelling at the white sands of the famous Wineglass Bay, and discovering lesser known beaches and coves along the way.
Ferry to the acclaimed Maria Island, and embark on two looped hikes to some of the region’s most incredible cliffs and coastal views. Full of settler history, consider hiring a bike to discover more of the island.
Keep an eye out for swooping sea birds and Australian animals like kangaroos and wombats as you walk. Plus, depending on the time of the year, you could spot a breaching whale from these promontories!
This trip involves plenty of walking over varied terrain and is best suited to travellers with a good level of mobility. Good footwear, clothing for all types of Tasmanian weather, plus perhaps walking poles are recommended. Details on physical activities can be found in the itinerary.

This trip is new to our range this year. And while we have thoroughly researched every detail of the logistics, new destinations can sometimes throw us some unexpected surprises. More often than not, it’ll be a great surprise. But every now and again there might be a hiccup. We like to think that’s what puts the ‘adventure’ in ‘adventure travel’.
