The Painted Cliffs are a favourite of visitors to Maria Island. Stained red, orange and yellow, the cliff face is simply stunning, especially in afternoon light. The walk to the cliffs is enjoyable along the island only dirt road and returning via a bush track to view a convict built hop kiln. Surrounding the cliffs lays a marine reserve and if the tides are favourable, many rock pool creatures can be found. This is a beautiful afternoon stroll, and with the many wombats that call this area home, photo opportunities are abundant on what is one of Tasmania's 60 great short walks.
