The cave has many spectacular formations which were well explained by the knowledgable guide. The glow worms were interesting.A pleasant walk to arrive at the cave entrance. Well worth a visit.

The caves were beautiful and the guide was fun and informative. I loved when he turned off the lights and the ceiling become all starry with glow-worms. The temperature in the caves is 9 degree despite the weather, so bring a jacket with you or you'll catch a cold.

Excellent tour guide, with interesting history of the discovery of the caves, the development of the different formations and the life cycle of the glow worms. Well worth a visit for adults and children.

Limestone caves are usually fun to explore with children and the Marakoopa cave delivered. Our guide, Dave, was both fun and knowledgable. There are glow worms to see when the lights are turned out and a nice little fern walk between the ticket office and the cave entrance. Good activity for a rainy day.

while the caves aren't as big as some of the others I've seen, they were clean and well-preserved. The guide was friendly and very informative. It was a nice way to spend 45 minutes on a hot day as it was chilly in the cave.

If you marvel at this wonderful planet we live on, you must see the caves near mole creek. The are absolutely spectacular. As long as your not clostraphobic , because it does get pretty tight in there,, it is marvelous. Our guide was also fantastic as he was full of interesting little facts. Amazing place.

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
