This free campground is located within Mole Creek Karst National Park, so a current National Parks Pass is required to stay the night. Situated alongside a creek and surrounded by caves, forest and farmland, this peaceful spot is perfect for an overnight stop.
We first stayed here in 2019 when holidaying around Tasmania in a motorhome, and loved it here so much that we said we’d have to re-visit! Fast forward to 2023 and our second visit over the Easter long weekend was just as good as we remembered.
A long-drop (composting) toilet is available and weak Telstra (and Aldi) mobile coverage, but that’s it as far as facilities go. Fires are allowed, but as it’s National Park you’ll need to bring your own firewood, and also take all rubbish with you.
There are caves located at this camping ground, including Honeycomb Caves. You can explore these caves, but do so at your own risk.

Things to See & Do at Mole Creek
Mole Creek Karst National Park
Visitors can access two caves on a guided tour within the National Park – Marakoopa Cave with a chamber full of glow worms and running streams, and King Solomons Cave with its stunning formations.
A short drive from Mole Creek will bring you to the pretty town of Sheffield, famous for over 200 murals painted throughout the town.
A 20-minute walk along a well-formed track and steps will bring you to the lookout at Devil’s Gullet, set atop 220-metre-high dolerite cliffs, and offers sweeping views across the landscape.
There are numerous waterfalls throughout the area, including Lobster Falls, Westmoreland Falls, Sensation Gorge Falls and more.
