Australia, Wolfe Creek Meteorite Crater, 16 – 17 August 2020

Wolf Creek Meteorite Crater – After I finished with the Northern part of the Bungle Bungle range I headed back to the main highway and drove west until I arrived at the Tanami Road. This is a gravel road that goes all the way to Alice Springs. I turned onto it and after 112 km of fairly smooth dirt came to the Wolf Creek Meteorite Crater turnoff. The Crater is located 20 km further, on a Cattle Station, 3 gates to open and close and I was there. Short walk up to the Crater rim, hard to imagine the impact and explosion that caused this 875m (diameter) and 60m deep dent in the planet. I wandered around for a while and as it was still early decided not to stay in the National Park Campground but carry on and stop at a Rest area on the main road.

It was made famous by the film Wolf Creek

Mary Pool Rest Area – on the Mary River, Mueller Ranges, good place for a free overnight stop.

Roebuck Plains Roadhouse – Another good place for a good meal and a paid overnight stop.
