Hastings Caves and Thermal Springs
Hastings Caves and Thermal Springs are a 90-minute drive south of Hobart.
Formed a million years ago, these great dolomite caves were discovered in 1917 by timber workers. You can join a Parks and Wildlife guide on a 45-minute guided cave tour. You will discover spectacular subterranean formations including flowstone, stalactites, columns, shawls, straws, stalagmites and the unusual helictites. The cave is spacious and well-lit and there are no narrow passages. There are a number of stairs inside the cave, all equipped with handrails.
Opening hours and cave tour times vary throughout the year, so we recommend you check times before arrival. We urge you to arrive 20 to 30 minutes prior to your tour.
The Hastings Cave Visitor Centre is your first point of call, where you can purchase tickets for cave tours or the Thermal Springs pool. You can swim in the warm thermal swimming pool, fed by a natural spring, the pool temperature is around 28 degrees Celsius, surrounded by forest and ferns with a large picnic/barbecue area and equipped with change rooms, showers and toilets. Souvenirs and light snacks available at the Visitor Centre.
Opening Times: Times vary seasonally. Always open between 1030 and 1530.
