MOUNT MOLLOY

Mount Molloy was named after Patrick Molloy, an early teamster for a stock route and the person who discovered copper at what was to become Mount Molloy.

Mount Molloy is a small town in the Atherton Table Lands that you pass through on the to Mareeba and beyond. On the weekends there is an influx of bikies from various districts that enjoy the ride/climb to this town. The Hotel is a natural draw card for the first refreshment on the day long ride.

On the Saturday mornings there is also a market that draws large numbers.

Mount Molloy is a historic mining and timber town and at its height it was a copper mine in the 1890s. It was commonly used as camping grounds and Chinese market gardeners used to grow grain and other foodstuffs for the miners nearby.

There are two old churches in the town.

The Mount Molloy War Memorial is located near the rear of the Hotel.

Mount Molloy looks like a fun place that a stopover for a coffee or refreshment would be in order.
