Information

Henbury Meteorites Conservation Reserve contains twelve craters which were formed when a meteor hit the earth’s surface (Henbury Meteorite Impact Craters).

Although accessible all year round, the cooler months from April to September is the best time to visit. Visit in the early morning or late afternoon when the sun will clearly defines the craters.

There is a self guided walking track around the craters, and a camping area with basic facilities adjacent to the car park.

There is the Henbury Meteorite Craters Camp Area in the park for accommodation. Fees (cash only, no change available) are payable on site. See listing for more information.
