Winter Wilderness Escape - in partnership with Maria Island Walk

Take your luxury Tasmanian experience to the next level

There is much to love about winter in Tasmania. Spend a week indulging in luxury, immersing yourself in secluded wilderness, and savouring the local flavours of the season.

Begin your journey in Hobart with a stay at MACq 01 Hotel, a luxury waterfront hotel in the city’s prime location. Offering sweeping views of the harbour and kunanyi / Mount Wellington, you can enjoy the best of the city’s rich culture, natural beauty and culinary delights.

The following morning, you’ll be picked up from MACq 01 and transferred to Triabunna Wharf to travel to Maria Island for the Winter Escape Walk. Here, you will spend three days exploring pristine beaches, tall ancient forests and world heritage sites teeming with wildlife. The amount of activity is up to you – from walking to the island summit or a relaxed pace amongst the free-roaming wildlife. 

Your evenings will be spent at the historic Bernacchi House in Darlington, the only heritage-listed house in a Convict World Heritage area. At the end of the day, relax and unwind in pure comfort on the verandah or in front of the fire. Your stay is inclusive of all meals, snacks and beverages for the entire duration and is fully hosted by private guides.

Your adventure will continue beyond Maria Island back on the Tasmanian mainland with a road transfer to Saffire Freycinet. Situated on the edge of Tasmania’s Freycinet National Park, Across two nights, enjoy all-inclusive experiences to discover the area’s incredible natural wonders, people and produce. Take a guided hike through the pristine wilderness, explore the secluded coves along Great Oyster Bay, or book yourself a restorative treatment at Spa Saffire. 

After your stay at Saffire Freycinet, you’ll then be transported back to Hobart. Here, you’ll say goodbye as you’re dropped off at Hobart Airport, or you have the option to add on an additional night back where it all began at MACq 01 Hotel.
