In Australia’s long history of strange and unusual findings, the Mystery Craters remain one of the most controversial. A mixture of sandstone and ochre, no one can quite explain how the 35 craters came to be.
Head to 15 Lines Road, South Kolan and once you’ve paid a modest entry fee, you can begin to unravel the mystery yourself. Start at the giant mural at the kiosk which is also home to gifts, souvenirs, rock samples, and food and drink. Original photographs of the property at the entrance tell the story of how the craters were discovered.
Then you can walk over a covered verandah, down a path and past a fairy garden after which you will see a fantastic formation. There’s also a viewing tower with an informative commentary.
