Certainly interesting, but it is obvious that the place is up for sale. Its is a little run down but is still worth a visit though.

Its expensive... if you look at all the pictures, then you've basically seen it. Its just if you want to see it in person & try & solve the mystery. Its fenced, so you can't get too close either. They have some rock samples though....More

Short drive out of Bundaberg you can visit the Mystery Craters. The background story behind the discovery of the craters was educational and interesting. Wandering around the craters and taking snaps to remember your visit a must.

Fascinating and mind boggling to think about, the 35 craters far exceeded our expectations and even though many other reviews are true we still think it is well worth the trip.
