Visiting the Mystery Craters is a journey of discovery! Halfway between Bundaberg and Gin Gin, 100m off the main road, 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.

Scientists date these Mystery Craters to be about 25 million years old. They are a unique mixture of sandstone and ochre. Some of the craters hold water, whilst others rise and fall over time while some do not hold water at all, which means they do not link up!

Get a birds eye view of these mysterious craters from the public viewing platform, allowing you to look directly down on these unexplained crater holes. You can even have your very own voice guided tour of the craters thanks to our automated guide. It is a definite bucket list tick off.
