Most people come to Mole Creek to visit its tourist caves; Marakoopa Cave (from the aboriginal word meaning ‘handsome’) and the King Solomon Cave. Marakoopa is a wet cave that features two underground streams and amazing display of glow worms. It is located 8 km from Mole Creek. King Solomon Cave is a smaller, dry cave (yet still spectacular) situated 15 km west and is better suited to those who are less energetic, due to its fewer steps.
