Mole Creek is a picturesque farming town situated close to the magnificent Great Western Tiers mountain range.  It is well known as a great place from which to explore some of Tasmania’s most spectacular natural wonders and is the gateway to the internationally renowned Cradle Mountain.

While the Marakoopa and King Solomons Caves get most attention, the mountains, highland plateau country, rainforests, streams, lakes, gorges and waterfalls form the stunning heartland of Mole Creek.  Much of this land is protected in world heritage area, forest reserves, and national parks.

Trowunna Wildlife Park features native animals in a free-ranging setting.  Visitors can see Tassie Devils being hand-fed, pat koalas and hold baby wombats, while experiencing an informative and personalised commentary.  They also have birds, echidnas, eagles, kangaroos, snakes, waterfowl, quolls and much more and while you are there visit the Devil Research and Information Centre.

For those who like someone else to do the driving or desire local knowledge there are 4WD and Wild Cave Tours. 

Mole Creek is also home to Tasmanian Honey, which produces around 35 per cent of the State’s honey.  The unique Leatherwood honey - derived from the blossom of the Leatherwood tree, which only grows in Tasmanian rainforests - is produced here and is sold both nationally and exported abroad.

Mole Creek has a range of B&Bs and cottage accommodation available.

Mole Creek is part of the Great Western Tiers Touring Route.
