Wild Cave Tours

Wild Cave Tours has conducted guided caving trips at Mole Creek in north west Tasmania since 1989. Mole Creek is a one-hour drive (via Deloraine) from Devonport or Launceston (74 kilometres).

Not the usual tourist caves! Go off the beaten track with speleologists who share their passion and knowledge. Choose from several undeveloped caves in the World Heritage area of kooparoona niara/ Great Western Tiers. See impressive subterranean scenery and specialised endemic cave wildlife by our helmet-lights. Features include underground streams, photography, glow worms, expert environmental interpretation, photography advice and challenge-by-choice (adventure grade easy to moderate). Most caving trips are for small groups of two to eight guests (please enquire about larger special interest groups). Trips are suitable for moderately fit beginners 14 years and older. Vertical rope-work is only available for group bookings (abseiling into the cave).

Trips are tailored to suit you; choose a peaceful nature experience or get muddy and wet squeezing and climbing. All caving gear and refreshments are provided. Bookings are essential, and you will need your own vehicle to travel to the caves. Partners: Much Better Adventures (weekend getaways).
