The seventh of our top ten Australian day walks, Bishop & Clerk pinnacles are the highlight of Maria Island on two feet and a hear beat.
Even early convicts took wry note of Maria Island’s beauty, with one prisoner describing it as a gaol in one of the loveliest spots formed by the hand of nature.
The walk to these pinnacles begins in Darlington, rounding the Fossil Cliffs before beginning up the slopes of Bishop and Clerk.
Nearing the top, there’s a section of loose scree to pick through, and a final, testing scramble onto the summit itself.
