Maria Island National Park


Tasmanian National Parks Entry Fees

Current park passes must be purchased for entry to Tasmania's national parks. Please see our National Parks Entry Fees pages for full details.


Changes to park entry fee arrangements for Maria Island took effect for bookings from 1 January 2019. These changes bring the Maria Island park entry fees in line with the current parks pass system across the State and will not affect holders of Annual, Two-Year Holiday or Seniors parks passes. This will result in a more consistent service for visitors to Tasmania’s national parks.


Visitors will still be able to purchase a parks pass as part of their Maria Island ferry booking.  Refer to Encounter Maria Island website, which shows their current pricing schedule, https://encountermaria.com.au/new-year-new-pricing-schedule/  


If you are travelling by your own boat, please see our National Parks Entry Fees pages for full details.
