The ‘Tourist Caves’
Most people come to Mole Creek to visit one or both of the well developed tourist caves; Marakoopa Cave and King Solomon Cave.
Marakoopa (from the aboriginal word meaning ‘handsome’), a wet cave featuring two underground streams and amazing display of glow worms, is located 8 km west from Mole Creek.
King Solomon Cave, a smaller, dry cave (yet still spectacular) is situated a further 7 km west and is better suited to those who are less energetic, due to its fewer steps.
