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.

We drove up to the caves from launceston, easy relaxing drive with great scenic views. The walk through the forest to get to the cave entrance was relaxing a very peaceful, only takes 10minutes and good for all fitness levels. The cave itself is stunning. Our tour guide was extremely informative and seemed to love telling it's stories. Was told... More

Visited the caves in March 2013. Very interesting caves with its limestone formations and fireflies as the highlight. It is well preserved with lights being switched off when we leave the different sections. Really worth the visit.

We didn't have many days in tasmania and could only do 1 cave. After reading the reviews, we decided on Marakoopa. We joined the underground river and glow worms tour. I've visited caves in other parts of Australia and find Marakoopa superior. The underground rivers and reflection pools were beautiful and so was the fern glade walk leading up to... More

The tour guide was very nice and humorous. The entrance fee (about $20 per person) was a bit expensive. There are a lot of stairs to climb; not suitable for elders and disabled persons. Although the formation and discovery of the cave fascinates me, I visited Guilin in China few years back where there are a few stalactite caves that... More

We saw the underground rivers cave and the glow worms. The caves are okay, not the best we have seen but we have seen a lot. It was expensive, almost $50 for two adults and one child. The big let down though was the guide who did not take the job of educator seriously. I suppose it must get boring... More

We did the cathedral tour and saw the glow worms after. It was very pretty and they have a very nice set up with the lights system. It was cool to start down and go up for a change. Good info and nice singing in the cathedral. The glow worms are not the most impressive (there are more in NZ... More

Mole Creek, Marakoopa Caves. This is one of the caves I would say thumbs up as its still revolving & alive. The passionate tour guide gave us very good explanation. There's only 4 person including 2 of us touring the caves, so we indeed feels very VIP & special. The underground river is excellent, with natural glow worms habitat. I... More

In a truly wonderful part of Tasmania, we did the Great Cathedral and Glow Worms tour at Marakoopa Cave which was led by a very knowledgeable and passionate guide. While we were only in a small group and with the knowledge a "medium level of fitness" was required, we both struggled with the pace of the tour. There are quite... More

I took the Cathedral tour. It was spectacular. Such amazing formations. Our guide was very knowledgeable. Just be prepared, it is a bit chilly inside. Bring warm clothing.
