A short drive from Bundaberg on the Gin Gin road takes you to this mysterious attraction with very friendly & informative staff who are happy to tell you the history & other information about the craters, there is also a vintage machinery display onsite & a well stocked gift shop full of a variety of souvenirs.

The Mystery craters are easy to find and close to Bundaberg. They are a strange occurrence and the owner was very friendly and informative. We enjoyed our visit here.

The theories abound how these craters were formed, but that is all they are... theories! No one knows for sure how they were formed. Before we came, there was a lot of rain, which filled some of the craters. Come and see for yourself... and decide what caused them. There is also a museum of old farm machinery which is... More

Interesting place, glad that we went for a look! Friendly and helpful lady. Check it out for yourself! Tidy but needs an upgrade. Noticed that it is for sale, potential here for a good business! Room for expansion, good Cafe etc.!

Was not sure what to expect and was a bit amused at the entrance upon arrival. The cheap admission was a draw card. After paying there is not a lot to see other than the craters and they certainly are a mystery. The corny dinosaur and fairy dell need to be overlooked if you are over 6 years of age,... More

Wow a true Australian iconic experience, forget the Great Barrier Reef, no coral bleaching here. True down to earth mind boggling experience, The automated guide information voice will drill every bit of information into your grey matter forever!

It wasn't quite what I was expecting, but very interesting and a must see if you are in the area. A nice café there as well.

We stopped in to see the Mystery Craters whilst on holidays and it was quite interesting. I felt like a detective walking around the craters trying to figure out how they were formed. Still I have no idea... Nevertheless a cool land formation and it's definitely worth a look. The fairy garden is cute and would be good for the... More

This attraction had very little interest to us. Overpriced for what it was. I wouldn't make a special trip just to see them.

Something to do for an hour but overpriced for what it was. It was raining slightly but it was still interesting. The owner (female) was absolutely charming.
