Where is it?

1333km south-west of Darwin, on the edge of the great sandy desert, WA

How to see it for yourself?
In dry season the crater is 2WD accessible; however in the wet Halls Creek is the furthest you can go. 4WDs make it accessible year-round.  Visitors can walk around the vast expanse of the crater, but there is no water supply so bring plenty with you. For an aerial view, Northwest Regional Airlines fly travellers over it from Halls Creek airport.

Why I love it

“Wolfe Creek Crater is thought to be the secondlargest meteorite crater in the world. The walls of the crater are up to 35 metres high and the crater floor is more than 50m below the rim – an amazing site from the ground or air.” – Jo Durbridge, Australia’s North West Tourism
