The Hastings Caves State Reserve offers visitors a variety of experiences, from relaxing in the warm waters of a thermal springs pool, walking in the rich forests of the reserve and, of course, the unique experience of exploring Newdegate Cave. Both the thermal pool and the trail which leads through the surrounding forests are accessible to wheelchair users.
Named after Sir Francis Newdegate, the Governor of Tasmania from 1917-1920, Newdegate Cave is the largest tourist cave in Australia which occurs in dolomite, rather than limestone.
Its richly decorated chambers began forming tens of millions of years ago. Don't miss the opportunity to take a tour of the cave with qualified Parks and Wildlife Service guides.

Important Information: Please ensure you arrive at the Visitor Centre 30 minutes before the advertised tour time, after ticket purchase there is a further 5km drive to the cave carpark, and a short walk to meet your guide at the entrance to the cave.
Please purchase your tickets for cave tours at the ticket office. Cave tour tickets include pool entry, access to BBQs, walks and facilities. The cave tour takes approximately 45 minutes.

Purchase your souvenirs from the Parks Shop and snacks from the kiosk (pies, toasted sandwiches, biscuits, confectionary, icecreams and drinks).
