Yet another guided Tasmanian walk cracks the top 30 – the panel has well and truly spoken! But this, the award-winning Maria Island Walk, really is princess walking at its finest: superb food, an incredible wilderness landscape, and more so than some of Australia’s other great walks, some truly fascinating history. Maria Island was home to some of Australia’s earliest convicts (and even they took wry note of the island’s beauty), and the stories you’ll hear will boggle the mind. Something to reflect on, perhaps, while you’re reclining each evening in your plush glamping tent. From $2300 per person including meals and wines. More info: Maria Island Walk
