Hastings Caves and Thermal Springs

Hastings Caves and Thermal Springs are a 90-minute drive south of Hobart.
Formed millions of years ago, these great dolomite caves were discovered in 1917 by timber workers. A Parks and Wildlife guide will take you on a 45-minute guided cave tour. You will discover spectacular subterranean formations including flow stone, stalactites, columns, shawls, straws, stalagmites and the unusual helictites. The cave is spacious and well-lit and there are no narrow passages. There are 500 stairs in total inside the cave, all equipped with handrails.
Opening hours and cave tour times vary throughout the year, so we recommend you check times before arrival. You must arrive at the Hastings Visitor Centre 20 – 30 minutes prior to your tour.
This is where you purchase tickets for cave tours or the thermal springs pool. You can swim in the warm thermal swimming pool, fed by thermal spring water. The pool temperature is a tepid 28 degrees Celsius. The pool is surrounded by forest and ferns with picnic/barbecue areas available. Change rooms, showers and toilets are available near the pool. Souvenirs and light snacks are sold in the Visitor Centre.
