Mole Creek Karst National Park, in Northern Tasmania, features richly decorated limestone caves.
The Park is 40 minutes west of Deloraine and a short drive from the village of Mole Creek.
Mole Creek Karst National Park protects deep limestone caves of superb stalactites, stalagmites and columns, glow worm displays, subterranean streams and cathedral caverns. The Park is best known for the superb Marakoopa and King Solomons Caves, which are open to the general public, but its 1,345 hectares (3,324 acres) contains a total of 300 caves and sinkholes.
You can view the caves on guided tours which depart several times each day, or join a specialised adventure-caving experience. If you plan to visit both Marakoopa and King Solomons Caves, remember that it will take about 15 minutes to drive between the two. There is an entry fee to explore the caves, and national park entry fees also apply to other areas of the Park.
At Mole Creek you’ll find a wildlife park, shops and a range of accommodation. Drive to Deloraine to see the town’s historic homes, antique shops and craft galleries, or visit Sheffield—a village adorned with murals depicting the history and culture of the area.
Current park passes must be purchased for entry to Tasmania's national parks. For full details please visit the Tasmanian Parks and Wildlife website.
