2. Mole Creek Karst National Park

Parks for all People - Access for the mobility impaired in Tasmania's national parks and reserves

Marakoopa Cave Take the B12 from Deloraine to Mole Creek, then follow the signs to the caves.

Located on the slopes of the Great Western Tiers, the Mole Creek Karst National Park protects some of the finest cave and karst features in Tasmania. The Parks and Wildlife Service run guided tours through Marakoopa and King Solomons Caves.

Unfortunately, the steps, uneven surface and restricted width of the paths within the caves means that the tours are not suitable for most mobility impaired people. However, the above-ground forest area within the national park is very scenic and still worth visiting. About 500 metres before the entrance to Marakoopa Cave there is an accessible picnic area, with tables and a sheltered BBQ. There are accessible sheltered picnic tables and toilets adjacent to the cave entrance carpark, although assistance may be required.
