One thought on “Mole Creek (10km)

  1. Mole Creek is a very special place. The camp ground in Mole Creek is beautiful quite space and a perfect place to stay if you’re making your way to/from Hobart to Cradle Mt. We’ve stayed there a couple of times and have always seen at least 1 Platypus swimming in the creek at night. I’d highly recommend stopping by if you’re taking a trip to Tasmania ?
