Highlights

  • Trowunna Wildlife Park gives you the opportunity to experience the magic of nature's wonderland. At Trowunna you can see more than 35 species of birds and animals. You can get up close and hand-feed the free-ranging kangaroos and wallabies or you can take an interactive guided tour and see Tasmanian devils being hand-fed. The Mole Creek area is renowned for its caves and Marakoopa and King Solomons Caves are but two caves in an area that contains over 300 known caves and sinkholes. Other typical karst features in this area include gorges and large underground streams and springs. Both caves are home to a range of fascinating animals which have evolved features which allow them to adapt to their lightless environments. The glow-worm display in Marakoopa Cave is the largest you'll see in any public access cave anywhere in Australia.
  • The Mole Creek Karst National Park was declared in 1996 to provide protection for some of the finest and most visited cave systems in Tasmania and includes Marakoopa and King Solomons Caves. Both caves are open to the public, and provide the opportunity to take a deeper look into the fascinating world of 'karst' landscapes.
  • Liffey Falls State Reserve is nestled within cool temperate rainforest on the slopes of the Great Western Tiers. Framed by the dominant species of Tasmania's cool temperate rainforests - myrtle, sassafrass and leatherwood, the falls are understandably a popular spot among both Tasmanians and visitors alike. A nature walk leads from a picnic area near the carpark down through forests of towering eucalypts and tree ferns to the falls. A number of smaller falls are passed along the way. The Liffey Falls State Reserve was included within theTasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area in 1989, a tribute to the globally significant value of the region.The area reveals a rich human heritage and insights into the forces which shaped the landscape over the past 250 million years.
