We drove to Mole creek caves from Launceston, about an hours drive. We went through the Marapooka Cave. Our guide was great she was really passionate about her job and it was so interesting to listen to her. The temperature of the cave is 9 degrees Celsius year round so it is best to dress warmly.

This is a great few hours of caves and stalagmites etc. It is not to expensive but a great experience for young and old. The history is amazing.

We were planning on visiting the Marakoopa cave and doing the rivers and glow worms tour. However, upon arriving we were told this cave was closed due to bridge repairs. It was a bit disappointing to hear this considering the website had no indication that it would be closed, so we headed off to visit the King Solomon cave instead.... More

We went to King Solomon Caves today and really enjoyed it. There was so much to look at. Very easy walk from the carpark to the start. Maybe 100m. Not a lot of steps. Would highly recommend this cave for those who aren't fit for climbing 100+ stairs - as is usually the case with caves. The only negative is... More

We went in the first tour of the morning at 10am. It's a short walk from the final car park to the cave. Dress reasonably warmly as the cave is 9 degrees Celsius year round. The cave is well developed with good footing and lighting throughout. Prams and wheelchairs won't work due to overhead clearance. Our guide was excellent; she... More

Hadn't planned to go to "another cave" but this ended up being last minute. Better than expected even with quite a big group of 20 or so. The guide made the trip worthwhile.

Such a beautiful cave! The tour guide we had was very informative and passionate about her job. Wonderful experience for adults and children. It's a little bit of a drive from Launceston but the scenery along the way is totally worth it.

This is the second cave I have visited, although they are fairly similar it's always good to spend time appreciating the rock formations that have taken thousands of years to take shape.

Staff at reception and tour guides were very friendly and knowledgeable. We had read great reviews about the caves and were certainly not disappointed. The scale and beauty of this natural wonderland is breath taking. Our family did the one hour cathedral and glow worm tour at Marakoopa which was spectacular. The children were captivated, it was magical. The history... More

Our tour guide was knowledgeable about this environment and gave a good explanations about caves and glow worms. Take in the view and where possible, don't rush through without enjoying the hidden aspects of nature!
