Features

  • The station precinct is of interest if in the area.

Description

Mole Creek is an attractive township in a valley on the route to Cradle Mountain.

There is little chance of any length of rail trail being developed but the effort gone into preserving the rail heritage is worth a look if in the area.

It includes some interpretive signage.

Background Information

The line to Mole Creek branched off from Lemana Junction near Deloraine and opened in 1890.  Timber pulp traffic kept it going longer than many other similar branchlines until 1985.

The community organised the heritage displays in 1998 and are still in good condition.

Most of the former line has been sold off (despite Google Maps still showing the railway there) but the alignment can still be seen in places along the road from Chudleigh to Mole Creek.
