Maria Island National Park Camp Sites
Maria Island can only be reached by boat or plane. To reach Triabunna (the nearest town on the coast near Maria Island) from Hobart, drive on the A3 road to Sorell and then on towards Orford on Tasmania's east coast. This drive takes approximately one and a half hours. From Launceston, take the Midlands Highway (A1) south to Campbell Town, the B34 to Swansea, and the A3 to Triabunna. It takes about two and a half hours from Launceston.
For further details and costs for the Penitentiary and camping, please see our Camping and Cabin Fee Information. For bookings and enquiries, please contact the Maria Island Office. Please read the terms and conditions for Penitentiary accommodation. Please note that bookings are not required for camping.
Campsites are also available at French's Farm and Encampment Cove some 3 - 4 hours walk away. Portable stoves are recommended for cooking at these two sites. Campfires are only permitted at Encampment Cove. Camping at both of these sites is free of charge.
