Ahead of the official launch of this year’s TasPride Festival on October 31, Tassie gay and lesbian bushwalking group the Wellington Wanderers (in association with the Gay and Lesbian Community Centre) have organised a fun-filled three-night camping trip to Maria Island, off the south-east coast of Tasmania.
From October 22-25, campers can explore the great beaches, wildlife and cultural heritage the island has to offer, including the natural wonder of the Painted Cliffs, (pictured), as well as bush and coastal walks to suit all fitness levels.
The Wanderers have pre-booked accommodation in the island’s old penitentiary, which comes complete with bunk beds, toilet and shower facilities and wood heating, but tent camping is also an option for those who don’t mind roughing it. Campers are welcome to come for as long as they want — from the full three nights down to a day trip.
