Pack-free walking on The Maria Island Walk

     Category: News

Enjoying The Maria Island WalkGuests can now experience the award winning Maria Island Walk without having to carry the standard 7kg backpacks, following the introduction of a new pack-free walking option for the 2015/2016 season.

Owner Ian Johnstone said “over the past 13 seasons we have received a number of requests from guests who really wanted to do the walk but due to age or health can’t carry a backpack.  Consequently, we have introduced an option where we can transfer guests’ packs between the wilderness camps and to Bernacchi House so all guests need to carry is a water bottle and a jacket”.   Enjoying Maria Island’s wilderness and history in style and comfort has been made even easier.

The pack free option is designed for groups and for specific departure dates and incurs an additional service fee.

The new season starts in October and runs through to April 2016.
