Hastings Caves State Reserve

Access

Access to Hastings Cave

Hastings Caves State Reserve is situated 125 kilometres south of Hobart. It is reached via the Huon Highway (A6). From Hobart, the trip will take one and a half to two hours. Thirty kilometres south of Geeveston, and just after the Southport turnoff on the C636, take the Hastings Cave Road (C635). This is a well-maintained gravel road which will take you to the Visitor Centre and Thermal Pools. Newdegate Cave is just a few minutes (5km) further along the road. From the carpark, it is a five minute walk to the cave entrance.

Public transport and tours

Visitors wishing to use public transport or tours to access the reserve should visit our web page on Access to Tasmania's National Parks, Reserves and Walking Tracks.
