Mole Creek - Cities, Towns and Localities
In a picturesque farming area west of Launceston and south of Devonport and Sheffield, is the small township of Mole Creek. With the Great Western Tiers mountain range as a backdrop, the region is famous for the subterranean caves, currently 200 known caves, from tiny spaces to huge cathedral vaults up to 10 km in width.

Mole Creek also produces leatherwood honey. The distinctive, aromatic honey is made by bees gathering pollen from the leatherwood tree, a species found solely in the rainforests of western Tasmania. Check out Stephens’ Tasmanian Honey Factory on Pioneer Drive where you can view the honey-making process from extraction to finished product.

Close to Mole Creek are the popular King Solomon and Marakoopa Caves, which are open to the public. Devils Gullet State Reserve is 40 km from Mole Creek, in one of Tasmania’s World Heritage Areas. The Devils Gullet lookout stands at 600m on a sheer cliff, providing amazing 180ฐ views of the Fisher River Valley. The area is also a known habitat for the Tasmanian Devil.

Mole Creek Attractions

Mole Creek Karst National Park • Department of Environment, Parks, Heritage and the Arts
• Fully guided tours available at Marakoopa Cave and King Solomons Cave 7 days a week, except Christmas Day. Ph: 03 63635182. Although these are the most accessible of caves to the general public, there is a whole system of caves in the Mole Creek area.

  • King Solomon and Marakoopa Caves
    — some of the best caves in Australia, drawing visitors from around the world. Located close to the town of Mole Creek, both caves have guided tours. Of the two caves, Marakoopa Cave is the larger and has a spectacular glow worm display. There are underground streams, rim pools and other spectacular formations. The name “Marakoopa” is from the Tasmanian Aboriginal word for “handsome”. King Solomon Cave is a dry cave that was named after one of the formations. With a bit of imagination, you can see calcite deposits that sparkle and look like diamonds. There is also a profile of King Solomon keeping watch over his treasure. This easy family walk has shawls, stalagmites and stalactites.

Most other caves in the region are not open to visitors except by permits through the local caver clubs. For the more adventurous there are guided tours to some some of the other caves, that are less accessible. We recommend taking “wild tour”. Click here to view other Tasmanian cave information.
