Wild Cave Tours

You are here

We take people into some of Mole Creek’s famous beautifully decorated caves – in a catered, half- or full- day trip. The setting: ecologically active caves in a Tasmanian dairy farm landscape, framed by Kooparoona Niara/ Great Western Tiers, handy to Launceston, Devonport and Cradle Mountain.

Gone for the day are the concrete paths, the crowds and usual tourist traps. We take time to admire the beauty, the wildlife and to photograph the outstanding values of the caves and karst landscape of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area. Try wading tranquil pools to appreciate lofty glow-worm chambers and flute concert. Or get more physical with varied challenges including climbing, squeezing and rushing underground streams. The options are yours to choose. Beginners are welcome. Tour grade : easy to moderate.

Wild Cave Tours include minimal impact instruction and environmental interpretation. Your leader(s) are speleologists from the local caving club who have run Challenge by Choice caving trips since 1989. Clients range from Australian couples, to seasoned international adventurers, to family groups, to grey nomads with SLR cameras looking for something “genuine.”

Individual/group enquiries are welcome. There are no set tour days but usually run 2 or 3 days a week. You can generate a booking with a minimum of two people. Please appreciate that trips at very short notice may be difficult, but it’s worth asking!
