Mole Creek Karst National Park
Mole Creek Karst National Park is home to the most spectacular accessible caves in Tasmania, featuring superb stalactites, stalagmites and columns, glow worms, subterranean streams and cathedral-like caverns.
The Mole Creek area sits on the edge of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area and features a remarkable 'karst' landscape formed millions of years ago when Tasmania was still part of the supercontinent Gondwana. The park contains more than 300 known caves in a hidden world of spectacular limestone formations. Marakoopa and King Solomons Caves are the two most accessible caves, offering stunning displays and a unique view of this underground world.
Marakoopa Cave features two underground streams and the largest display of glow worms in any public-access cave in Australia. The magnificent cavern known as the 'Great Cathedral' features dazzling crystals, and the 'Gardens' are comprised of delicate formations and beautiful colours.
The caves of Mole Creek Karst National Park contain many other natural wonders, including fascinating creatures that never see the light of day.
Several guided journeys into Marakoopa and King Solomons Caves are available and suitable for all ages and fitness levels.
For a more in-depth caving experience, take a customised half-day and whole-day tour with expert environmental interpretation and adventure challenges.
There are also numerous short walks above ground that explore the beautiful forests that conceal these magical caves.
