In February 2014 Island Arks Symposium III participants will have the opportunity to participate in a selection of field trips in Tasmania. Today details on the Maria Island field trip were added to new Symposium Field Trips page.
About the field trip
Come and join on beautiful Maria Island National Park, home of the Tasmanian Devil Translocation Project. We have planned a trip that ensures you will get to appreciate the natural beauty of one of Tasmanian’s bigger islands. Fantastic opportunity to see wombats, wallabies, Cape Barren Geese, the endangered endemic 40-spotted pardalote and much more.
The weekend will be fully catered and transport to and from Hobart will be provided. Accommodation will be basic but charming in the historic old convict Penitentiary part of the World Heritage Darling convict settlement. Simple rooms with bunk beds and mattresses. All you need to bring is a sleeping bag, pillow and towel. There are hot showers and toilets. The current cost estimate is $250- $300 this will vary depending on how many people come. Partners and family welcome.
