|The largest crater is actually two craters caused by the larger fragments of the meteorite.|
|Vegetation in the bottom of the main crater.|
|Water Crater - the grasses are present because a small creek drains into this crater.|
We were the only visitors and only five other cars had been there that day (if the visitor book is any guide). Why? It's not that far off the highway. The facilities are good - toilets, picnic tables, information boards - and you can freecamp (in a designated area) there for a small fee. The track is a 1.5 km easy walk. The signboards are interesting.
Just before the turnoff on the Stuart Highway we stopped to have a look at the flowers that are carpeting previously bare sand. Spring has sprung.
