Apart from a few Parks and Wildlife Service 4WDs, there are no cars on Maria Island, so it’s the perfect place to explore on two wheels. It’s OK to ride on the roads, vehicle tracks, and in some cases on open paddocks. Please do not ride on the walking tracks. Riding conditions vary and change quickly in bad weather, so come prepared and ride to your ability.
The bikes for hire are fully equipped MONTARI trail bikes. They come in four sizes to suit all riders – subject to availability. The bikes have a light alloy frame, 100mm of suspension with a hydraulic lockout, hydraulic brakes, eight speed gears and trigger shifting.
To reserve a bike or bikes please book online at least 24 hours prior to your ferry departure. A limited number of bikes may be available to hire on the day of travel – please call 03 6256 4772 or enquire in person. Bikes can be collected from next to the penitentiary in Darlington, on Maria Island. Please return them to the same location.
