The craters themselves are very interesting but the place really needs something more. Maybe a bigger and better rock display or some fossils or something just to make the stop a little longer. Worth a stop if your on your way past but that’s about...More

The mystery craters are about a 30 minute drive from Bundaberg and worth the visit just to look at these amazing thousands of years old craters.

We dropped into the Mystery Craters on our way back from Lake Monduran. We had our dog with us and the lovely lady that worked there allowed us to bring her in. We walked around the Craters and grounds for about half an hour. We...More

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.

Not worth the drive from Bundaberg or the $7.50 to enter. The lady who owns it/works on the front desk was not very inviting either- terrible customer service. The craters themselves weren’t much to see and we spent longer driving there than we did inside....More
