- East Coast
Maria Island makes for a great overnight cycling trip, allowing you a chance to not only explore the more commonly visited sites on the Northern Island, but also a chance to head down to the much less visited Southern Island.
The route described below sets aside the first day for a leisurely exploration of the Southern end of the Island on the first day, overnight camping at Encampment Cove, and then a walk up Mt Maria and exploration of the more visited Northern end of the Island on the second day. However, once on the Island, you can mix and match the rides to your own liking and unless you're really keen to get away from it all, it might make more sense to base yourself at Darlington and just do day trips (see route options).
Maria Island has an amazing abundance of wildlife, so it can be worth taking a good torch for a bit of a night time look around.
