Mole Creek Karst National Park


View Larger Map

Mole Creek Karst National Park is situated in the central north of Tasmania, about 40 minutes drive west of Deloraine. It can reached via the B12 from Deloraine via Mole Creek. The first turnoff is well sign-posted and leads to Marakoopa Cave. The second turnoff is a further 7 km along the B12 and leads to King Solomons Cave. If you plan to visit both caves, remember that it will take about 15 minutes to travel the distance between the two.

As parking space at the upper carpark is limited and the access road is narrow, motor homes and articulated vehicles (caravans & camper trailers) must remain at the lower carpark near the Ticket Office. This will mean that occupants of these vehicles must allow time for and be prepared to walk the 800 metres to the cave (approx. 10-15 mins).

When driving at night, please be aware that you are sharing the road with wildlife.

Public transport and tours

Visitors wishing to use public transport or tours to access the park should visit our web page on Access to Tasmania's National Parks, Reserves and Walking Tracks.
