About Wild Cave Tours
Experiences in wild (undeveloped) caves since 1989, with caving club leaders, at Mole Creek Karst National Park (on the edge of the Wilderness World Heritage Area).Handy to Cradle Mountain, Launceston and Devonport. Club caving began here in 1946 (Australia’s first caving club, the Tasmanian Caverneering Club). Discoveries are still being made. Some 450 caves are currently known, attracting club cavers from interstate and overseas. Mountain catchments feed streams that sink into the ground and which are important for the karst ecology, endemic "living fossils" cave fauna and local water supplies. Forest cover sustains active biogeochemical processes of cave mineralisation. While “show” caves are easy to access, specialised equipment and leadership is necessary to explore “wild” caves safely and with minimal impact. Each cave involves different grades of difficulty to explore and different opportunities for photography, adventure, geomorphology and fauna interpretation.This licensed, accredited Tasmanian tourism business supports WildCare, Tasmanian Land Conservancy and Australian Bush Heritage.Half day trips for the tourist market. Includes overalls, helmets and lights hire plus lunch (full day on request).Special interest group programs include an option to abseil a wide 24 m deep sinkhole into the cave, with excellent spectator viewing.

On 28th Sept, William and Declan meet Deb to explore and learn about a very special cave deep in the World Heritage Park. I decided not to go but was invited by Deb to come along and walk and sit quietly listening to all the bird chatter.Then join them for lunch under an ancient gum. From beginning to end communication was easy and Deb responds fast! Will and Declan were brimming with stories and talked about their underground experience which they describe and magical and extraordinary. Lunch was plentiful and catered for Will, gluten free. Delicious wraps with home made pickles, fruit cake, home made lemon syrup and really, really good coffee. So, Deb - we will be back and this time for a full day. Do yourselves a favour and just book.

A truly amazing day, suitable for all levels of experience and you don't even have to be super fit to do it. It was just the 2 of us with our sensational leader, the ever-so-knowledgeable Deb Hunter. Deb tailored the day to suit our interests and even made a few changes at lunchtime with our cave choice to maximise our experience. I can honestly say that this was one of the best things we have done - the caves are spectacular and I swear that Deb knows more about the caves and the area that the rest of Tassie put together! Her passion is contagious and we felt privileged that she was so happy to share even a smidgen of what she knows. This is definitely a highly recommended experience - simply stunning! Oh & lunch was awesome too and included home-made (by Deb) goodies

Absolutely awesome, one of the best adventure experiences I have ever been on. The Multiple caving options were made available and the tour was tailored to our interested and abilities. The guide was friendly and knowledgeable while the two caves we visited were both different and incredible in their own right. I would highly recommend doing this tour.

We had an amazing first time caving experience with Deb. She is an expert caver and made us feel completely at ease throughout the time we were in some deep caves with her. Very knowledgeable about ecology and geology she was a mine of information throughout our tour. The experience of being in an otherwise completely dark cave with hundreds of glow worms is one I will never forget. Whilst you might get a superficial package holiday style caving experience more cheaply with a mass market operator, to get real quality and the best memories Wild Cave Tours will not disappoint.

Our guide Deb was amazing. She tailored the trip for us and knew the answer to *every* question! I was a bit nervous but she made me feel safe and I had a great time.
