More than just a popular caving destination, Mole Creek is also a gateway to the rugged mountain peaks, spectacular waterfalls and mystical beauty that have come to define the central north of Tasmania.

Originally part of a trade route, this small rural town has undergone a number of transformations since it was first established in the late 1800s.

Remnants of a flourishing timber industry and the town's rich forestry history are still visible, but it is the area's limestone caves and countryside that have continued to attract tourists.

There are more than 300 caves to explore in Mole Creek and regular tours of some of the best spots are available upon request.

If you prefer the experience that comes with a guided tour then you might like to make the journey to Mole Creek Karst National Park and take a closer look at the Marakoopa and King Solomon caves.

The Marakoopa cave is home to a number of underground streams that make caving more exciting, as well as more than just a few glow worms.

More experienced cavers may prefer to take a slightly more challenging route and discover parts of Tasmania that are not accessible to the general public.

After spending the day outdoors, you might want to take a break and visit the nearby Trowunna Wildlife Park and Devil Research Centre.

The park is a wildlife sanctuary and home to a variety of rare birds, reptiles and marsupials that you may not see anywhere else in the world.

Keen bushwalkers will no doubt want to go on one of the many short and slightly more challenging trails around Mole Creek.

The Liffey Falls walk is a must-do activity for your Tasmanian bucket list with its mix of picnic facilities, lush green ferns and breathtaking waterfalls.
