Caves and Caving

Tasmania has some of the deepest and longest caves in Australia and more cave development than any other Australian state. Caves can be found across the island - from large horizontal networks and underground river systems to deep vertical cavities with amazing natural displays.

Some of the best caving can be found in the Mole Creek, Junee Florentine and Ida Bay areas.

Mole Creek is the departure point for guided tours into the famous and beautiful Marakoopa and King Solomons caves. Marakoopa, with its underground rivers and reflection pools has the largest glow worm display in the country.

Tasmania's south also features some subterranean hotspots including thepopular and accessible Newdegate Cave in the Hastings Caves State Reserve. Hastings Cave is itself the largest developed cave in the country and being formed in dolomite, it's also one of the rarest.

Take a guided tour of its richly decorated and rare dolerite chambers with a park ranger and meet the curious local cave-dwelling creatures.

There are also excellent cave diving spots for underwater exploration and adventures.
