Mole Creek Karst National Park and the surrounding area offer subterranean streams and pools, plus some 300 caves. At Marakoopa Cave, you’ll feel as though you’re in mother nature’s planetarium, because the walls are lit up by Australia’s largest colony of glow worms. Honeycomb Cave is best explored with Deb from Wild Cave Tours (wildcavetours.com). Unlike most guides, she holds a PhD in Speleology.
