Mole Creek

You are here

Mole Creek offers some of the richest and most diverse natural wonders of the Great Western Tiers region. Exploration underground reveals the world-class King Solomons and Marakoopa Caves, a major attraction for visitors. Above ground is equally spectacular with natural gems in the mountains, highland plateau and rainforest country of the World Heritage Area. If wildlife is your thing, there's an abundance of native animals on display at Trowunna Wildlife Park; home of the Devil Education and Research Centre.

The name Mole Creek originates from the changing attitude of the river that disappears into the limestone cave system and then reappears and disappears, just like an English Mole.

A popular tourism gateway to Cradle Mountain also offers many accommodation options. Call into the Great Western Tiers Visitor Centre in Deloraine on your way through the tourist route and pick up some info about Mole Creek walks, attractions and places to stay.
