Description

Tasmania is a mecca for cavers. Deb Hunter, local caver and conservationist, welcomes nature lovers to explore Mole Creek’s World Heritage undeveloped caves. Deb is the perfect host, whether you’re after a mild or wild experience in these caves not normally open to the public. Lunch features fresh local produce.

Aboriginal land: The caves' location is kooparoona niara (Great Western Tiers), cultural landscape of the pallatorre people of lutruwita. We honour and respectfully interpret this living culture to visitors.

Sustainability: This business goes much further than compliance with official Parks and Wildlife license conditions. Caring for the environment we operate in is essential to the sustainability and the authenticity of the experience. More information is available on Ecotourism Australia’s Green Travel Guide and the operator’s website.

"Mild" tour or "Wild" tour? Book 4 hours (one cave) or 8+ hours (two caves). Families: book a "Family Friendly" trip. It's generously discounted and suitable for the whole family (except infants). Private Charters and Photography trips: available by request. Access tourism: private charters for access tourism are designed to suit you. For more info, please see the operator’s website.

Mild Tour, half day $AU160 per person Inclusions: Lunch, overalls, gumboots and all caving equipment. Duration is normally from 8.30 to approximately 12.30 pm. Winter start 9.00 (June, July, August). You can request a half day trip as a Photography Trip or Photography Workshop to learn cave specific techniques. Min 2 people.

Wild Tour, full day $AU320 per person - extend yourself, it's really worth doing two different caves.

Family-friendly tours Half day $AU130 per person Family tours are suitable for most school-aged kids and average fitness adults. NOT suitable for infants and the disabled. See glow-worms and other cave animals, a chance to see a platypus if we're lucky, and follow the wombat cave paths. We provide two leaders if over five people (max 10). With two leaders, parents don't have to do the fun squeezy or crawly bits that your kids will love (unless you want to)! Inclusions : Lunch, overalls, gumboots and all caving equipment. Lunch is a salad wrap, but you may request instead a lunch box (cheese, biscuits, fruit, cake etc) for kids. Min 4 people.
