Expanding Mole Creek Karst National Park
The Tasmanian Government is proposing to expand the Mole Creek Karst National Park to better protect the area’s unique limestone cave systems.
The proposed expansion of the Mole Creek Kast National Park will occur through the reservation of an additional 2,850 hectares of land currently classified as Future Potential Production Forest (FPPF) land, and includes land known as Solomons Dome, which contains the catchment of the internationally significant Kubla Khan Cave.
A further 22,550 hectares of FPPF land in the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area is also proposed to be formally reserved as either conservation area, or regional reserve.
These proposals have followed significant public consultation.
