Hastings Caves and Thermal Springs is situated in the far south of Tasmania’s beautiful Huon Valley, a 90-minute drive from Hobart. A Parks and Wildlife Service guide will lead you through a living and breathing ecosystem that boasts an identity like no other. This is an opportunity to immerse yourself in an ancient yet ever-changing environment. You will discover within the dolomite cave spectacular subterranean formations including flowstone, stalactites, columns, shawls, straws, stalagmites and the unusual helictites. The cave is spacious and there are no narrow passages. The light level is low. There are 250 stairs each way, equipped with handrails. Opening hours and cave tour times vary throughout the year, so we recommend you check times on the Parks and Wildlife Service website before you embark on your journey. It is recommended that you arrive at the Hastings Visitor Centre 45 minutes prior to your chosen tour. This is where you purchase tickets for cave tours or the thermal spring reserve. Enjoy a coffee or light snack in the Café area of the Visitor Centre, and shop for souvenirs. You can swim in the 28-degree thermal swimming pool, which gathers and circulates natural thermal spring water, which is full of rich minerals. Change-room amenities are near the pool. Remember, outdoor temperatures in southern Tasmania may be cool, pack warm clothing and wear sturdy footwear.
