Mole Creek - Tiger Country
Tassie Tiger - the Legend lives on - or does it?
Tasmania is home to some of the world's most unusual and mysterious wildlife. Australian animals, such as the platypus, the koala and the kangaroo, have been a source of wonder and awe to people the world over. But perhaps our most mysterious animal is the thylacine, or Tasmanian Tiger, which is considered to have become extinct by 1936. There are many reasons why people are fascinated by this animal. Perhaps it is its name and the romantic notion of Australia having its own 'tiger'. Perhaps it is the fact that there are people who claim to have seen a Tasmanian Tiger and believe it may not be extinct after all.
While Mole Creek is one of the centres of Tassie Tiger sightings you will discover the many more mysteries above and below ground, that make this unique region a must see for tourists and locals alike -from the majestic underground Marakoopa and King Solomons Caves to the visually stunning Tulampanga/Alum Cliffs and Devil's Gullet. See the Tasmanian Devil and other fascinating native animals at the Trowunna Wildlife Park and the extensive display dedicated to the Tassie Tiger in The TigerBar at the Mole Creek Hotel. And all with the ever-changing and beautiful Western Tiers as a stunning back drop.
Tasmania's unique pristine wilderness astounds all the senses. As spellbinding as it is breathtaking we guarantee you will feel closer to mother nature at the conclusion of your Mole Creek and surrounds visit - we guarantee it! So hop into your transport of choice and begin your new venture into what will no doubt become an experience of a lifetime. And remember, keep a look out for our Tassie Tiger as it's out there somewhere, just waiting to be found.-
