Our members assist the Rangers with a wide range of management activities, mainly underground. These activities include cleaning, track marking, placement of advisory signs and surveying. Some of these caves are under a limited access code requiring affiliation with the Australian Speleology Federation (ASF), others are less restricted.

Where we work

Molecreek CavesWe mostly work at Mole Creek which is near Deloraine at the foot of the Great Western Tiers. It is about a 45-minute drive from Devonport and a 1 hour drive from Launceston. The area is famous for the quantity and quality of its limestone caves. There are 2 tourist caves in the area and several hundred “wild caves”, some of which are considered amongst the best in Australia.

What we do

Our members assist the Rangers with a wide range of management activities, mainly underground. These activities include cleaning, track marking, placement of advisory signs and surveying. Some of these caves are under a limited access code requiring affiliation with the Australian Speleology Federation (ASF), others are less restricted. Some projects require extensive vertical skills to access the work sites, other involve only basic caving skills. The KarstCare coordinator supervises all projects, with all equipment being supplied.
