We took a tour with Dawn. She was friendly, full of information and extremely patient with our 5 year old, listening to and answering all of his many many questions. It was a lovely drive from Launceston and worth the trip. A lovely afternoon, made even more wonderful by our excellent tour guide Dawn.

Of the two Moles Creek caves, we were only able to visit Marakoopa cave. And we loved it. The drive to the Park office is nice in itself. We stopped at the silk shop that sells 127 different types of fudges. From the Park office, we took the walking track (about 15 min) through the forest and along the river.... More

We went to the cave it was really nice to learn how the limestone create different formations. The guide we had sounded like he was making a lot of things up rather than giving a narrow veiw on how things could have been formed. He was also very dry in his tone. The glow worms were really interesting although are... More

We stopped on way to Cradle Mountain. It was well worth the stop. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and even after approx 7 years still lives the cave and it's beauty. You need to be reasonably agile as there are steps and in some areas you need to crouch down a bit but well worth it. One of the highlights... More

We were fascinated with the formations. It is truly remarkable what nature creates. Our guide was very knowledgeable and adds a bit of humour in.....but what guide doesn't. Tour goes for about an hour which is heaps of time but it goes very quick. We got heaps of photo opportunities. Being a photographer I would have lived to take my... More

Our guide, named Barry, was well informed and friendly. We were impressed with the variety of formations. While the glow worms were not as plentiful as in the cave we visited in New Zealand they were fun to see again. The cave is 9 degrees and easily walked with a minimum of stairs. The fern forest that leads to the... More

My wife and I visited both caves, Marakoopa and King Solaman. They were both excellent and very different from each other. Plenty of photography opportunitys along the way although being led by a guide one can't hang around to long. The guides were informative and passionate about the caves . The visit times are spaced well allowing time to drive... More

the best of the caves because it is both a limestone cave but also has glow worms - 2 for the price of 1. The cave is fascinating, the guide was funny informative and made the experience especially great for the kids on the tour.
