Mole Creek Caves

You are here

The Marakoopa and King Solomons Caves are just two of over 300 known caves and sinkholes in the Mole Creek area.

45 minute guided tours of each cave operate 364 days a year and offer a unique glimpse into a magical underground world of lavish colours, rushing water, sparkling crystals, and, at the Marakoopa Cave, a stunning glow worm display that is the largest of any public access cave in Australia.

Catering for all age groups and fitness levels, there are two tours to choose from at Marakoopa taking in underground rivers, and a medium-difficulty tour that includes the spectacular "Cathedral" and "Gardens" formations. Both tours include the fascinating glow worm display.

Tours of the nearby King Solomons Cave are easier going and offer an unforgettable journey that is suitable for all age groups.

Visitors to the caves are advised they will need to wear suitable walking shoes and warm clothing, as temperatures inside the caves are a coolish 9 degrees. Cameras are welcome, however tripods are not permitted in the caves. As the caves are located in the Mole Creek Karst National Park, visitors must also note that pets are not permitted.

A feature of the Great Western Tiers Tourist Route, the caves can be accessed either from Deloraine or Mole Creek via the B12, or as part of a trip to or from Cradle Mountain by using roads C138 or C137.

Drop into the Visitor Centre at 100 Emu Bay Road, Deloraine for a tour times brochure.
