My daughter and I were lucky enough to have a private tour with Adam, as no one else was there, was amazing. I was a bit worried about being in a confined area, but once we were in the caves, it wasn't a problem at all, just beautiful, and we got to see the glow worms..loved it

“King Solomons Cave is Best”
Reviewed June 23, 2014

King Solomons Cave is a dry cave but it is visually the most impressive and is filled with bacon like veils / curtains throughout. You can almost smell the bacon!!!

We also did both the cathedral and river cave tours at Marakoopa Cave. Be prepared for some climbing on the cathedral cave tour as this involves a considerable number of steps. Also, for all caves, if you are a very large rugby player i.e. wearing 5XL clothes and 6'4" plus - you will probably not make it through some of the narrower parts of the cave.

We visited in winter but suspect that Marakoopa Rivers cave tour will be best in summer after wet weather.

“King Solomon's cave is the best”
Reviewed May 20, 2014

We visited both caves. King Solomon's Cave is smaller but has more intricate and exquisite formations. The tour is not really long enough. And guides in both caves turned off the lights too quickly before we could all take photos, and shone a light onto formations to highlight them which also ruined photos.

A suggestion: tell everyone they have 2 (?) minutes to take photos at each major stop before the lights are turned out.

“Cavernously beautiful”
Reviewed May 17, 2014

We visited Marakoopa Cave and regretted we hadn't had time to also do King Solomons Cave. Marakoopa Cave is beautiful and makes a good pair with Hastings Caves. The guide was very knowledgeable and happy to answer questions, but lacked a bit of enthusiasm and the personality that makes a tour memorable for your customers. The lighting here was much more direct and at times quite stark. Photography is encouraged in the main part of the cave once past the glow-worm chamber, but often the lighting itself impaired what could have been a great shot. Reportedly, upgrading the lighting to LEDs, like Hastings, is on the agenda some time in the future. Some nice little picnic areas nearby and good amenities and parking. Its a fair way from either Deloraine or Devonport, but I've never been to caves that did not require an effort to get to them.
Like Hastings, claustrophobes will have no problem with this cave. The chambers are huge and the passageways generous. There is one "mind our head" but the rest is very spacious. There are steps and plenty of them, but they are not in large flights, and are easy to manage. The concrete "spiral" stairway constructed to take visitors down 10m or so, is VERY impressive, considering the work and effort that it must have taken to construct in a cave.
Again, well worth the visit, well worth the cost.
Mole Creek is a nice little village.
