Mole Creek (what a name) is encounted when traveling the Launceston to Cradle Mountain (or vice versa) route. Mole Creek is a very small town, but has assumed the last sighting of the Tasmania Tiger locality and the marketing of such.
Mole Creek is a town in the upper Mersey Valley, in the central north of Tasmania, At the 2006 census, Mole Creek had a population of 223, so is a pretty small place. The town primary school also services the surrounding districts including Chudleigh and Caveside. The nearest high school and regional centre is Deloraine. Mole Creek is well known for its honey and accounts for about 35 percent of Tasmania's honey production including Leatherwood Honey (a noted monofloral honey) which is unique to Tasmania and sold internationally.
A railway was opened to Mole Creek on 5 April 1890. Throughout its existence, it carried mostly timber destined for the paper mill at Burnie and, in later days, woodchips for Bell Bay. Passenger services were mostly railcars after the 1920s. The line closed in 1992, it having been out of service since 1985
Trowunna Wildlife Park is a popular tourist attraction in the area and is known for Tasmanian Devil conservation and a successful breeding programme.
Mole Creek Karst National Park (the sighting of the Tassie Tiger) is also nearby, including the show caves Marakoopa Cave and King Solomons Cave, which have been popular with tourists for 100 years.
