Mole Creek is a pretty town surrounded by some of Tasmania's most beautiful wilderness and is the perfect base for exploring nearby national parks, Cradle Mountain and some amazing caves that must be seen to be believed.
Wrapped in natural beauty, Mole Creek is the departure point for guided journeys into the famous Mole Creek Caves. These fragile limestone caves are a hidden world of spectacular formations, sparkling crystals and underground streams, with glow worms and other rare creatures that never see the light of day.
There are also plenty of opportunities to meet the local wildlife outside at the local wildlife park, including a close encounter of the Tasmanian devil kind.
There are several walking and cycling tracks near Mole Creek, such as the scenic Westmorland Falls and Alum Cliffs Gorge lookout. A little further afield, Liffey Falls is part of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area and has an easy walking track with picnic facilities among lush green ferns.
Mole Creek is also the departure point for those walking in the remote and wild Walls of Jerusalem National Park.
In fact, this friendly town is the perfect base for exploring the entire region and has plenty of great food and accommodation in some of Mole Creek's most charming historic hotels and cottages.
