More than just big holes in the ground, Australia’s meteorite impact craters are the visually stunning remnants of our continent’s violent past. We tell you why you should go and visit them.
Throughout its 4.5 billion year history, Earth has experienced countless meteoric impacts but thanks to the volatile nature of the surface, the evidence of these impacts has largely been eroded away. Fortunately, a few remain visible on the surface and a handful of them are located across Australia. Here we identify five impact craters that you can visit on your travels around the country, but be warned, they are in some very remote locations.
