Mystery Craters

Amusement and Theme Parks Galleries, Museums and Collections Natural Attractions Parks and Gardens

Visiting the Mystery Craters is a journey of discovery! Halfway between Bundaberg and Gin Gin is Australia’s most baffling phenomenon. Since their discovery in 1971, the origins of the 35 oddly shaped craters have remained the subject of controversy. The mottled mixture of sandstone and ochre stain have been the subject of many investigations and various theories have been offered.

A giant mural greets you and as you enter the kiosk some wonderful gifts, souvenirs, and rock samples are on display. Light snacks, coffee, tea, cold drinks, and ice creams are available for your pleasure.

Through the archway you will find original photographs of the property and how the craters were discovered. Walk over the covered verandah, down the path, past the fairy garden, and you will come to the fantastic formation. A viewing tower is complimented by an informative commentary at the touch of a button.

To complete your tour, visit the collection of pioneer memorabilia and fascinating rock and fossil display. See it, love it!
