Sheffield - Town of Murals
The Town Murals

Sheffield, North Western Tasmania

Sheffield is fast becoming known world wide as the "Town of Murals" and is admired daily by people visiting from near and far.

In 1986 a public meeting was held to discuss the economic decline that was happening in the town. The result of this meeting lead to the formation of the Kentish Association for Tourism, inc.

It was decided to follow in the footsteps of Chemainus, Canada and paint murals on the town walls depiciting the history of the area. Now there are over 40 murals in the community with more in the pipeline to be painted.

Mole Creek Caves

Mole Creek North Western Tasmania

Marakoopa and King Solomons caves are located close to the small rural town of Mole Creek and are within easy reach of Lauceston, Devonport and Cradle Mountain. Both caves are spectacular and differ greatly in their features. Why not take the time to explore the two of them?

Marakoopa Cave features two underground streams, a large display of glow worms, large caverns, rim pools, reflections and shawl and flowstone formations. Tours take approximately 45 minutes (depending on group size) and there are 246 steps each way in the cave.

King Solomons Cave is smaller than Marakoopa. However, it is lavishly decorated with shawls, stalactites and stalagmites. This cave is richly-coloured and features calcite crystals known as 'King Solomons Diamonds'. Tours take approximately 45 minutes and there is only a small number of steps. This cave is recommended for those preferring a gentle walk.
