King Solomons Cave, in Mole Creek Karst National Park, is a richly decorated limestone cave. The Mole Creek Karst National Park is in the central north of Tasmania, about 40 minute’s drive west of Deloraine.

You require a National Parks Pass and must book to visit, as numbers are capped.

Why Visit:

A superb example of a limestone cave, which isn’t too claustrophobic nor long.  This care is well lit, and has a good walking trail, so moderate fitness will suffice.

Additionally you are now in Tasmanian Tiger territory, and if you spot one and evidence is found to support your claim, you will be $1.1 million dollars richer.

What I found really interesting when we took the walking trail, is the notion that you would be hard pressed to see one in this environment.  We got lost and we were less than 300m from the carpark.
