這是瑪麗亞島上著名的景點，彩繪懸崖（painted cliffs)。距離達林頓港大約1個小時的路程，前往時最好選擇退潮時，並在有陽光的晴朗天氣會更美。 more »This is the famous scene on the island of Maria, draw ink suspension cliff (painted cliffs). About 1 hours from the port of Lam, it is best to choose when the tide is low and the weather will be more beautiful on a sunny day.
It's tough to find a place like this in Australia, a place where history and nature combines to create a perfect holiday retreat for those looking to explore. Walking trails, cycling trails, no cars, access only by boat and the only food is what you take. And wombats everywhere. A few Tassie Devils, and plenty of Geese as well amongst the Joeys. Seemingly so much to do in so little time. A definite highlight of the holiday
Loved my visit here. Was an amazing place full of history. Well worth it.
