Explore the Mole Creek Caves & Trowunna Wildlife Park
At the foot of the Great Western Tiers sits Trowunna Wildlife Park near Mole Creek, not far from Cradle Mountain. Our Trowunna Wildlife Park day tours from Launceston also include the Marakoopa limestone caves at Mole Creek, and an optional Launceston Cataract Gorge visit if time permits.
At Trowunna, you can see more than 35 species of birds and native animals and see Tasmanian devils being hand-fed.
Marakoopa and King Solomons caves at Mole Creek provide a wonderful opportunity to take a deeper look into the fascinating world of karst limestone landscapes.
The Mole Creek Karst National Park was declared in 1996 to provide protection for some of the finest and most visited cave systems in Tasmania and includes Marakoopa and King Solomons caves.
