Fodor's Review

The Henbury Meteorites craters, 12 depressions between 6 feet and 600 feet across, are believed to have been formed by a meteorite shower about 5,000 years ago. One is 60 feet deep. To get here, you must travel 13 km (8 miles) off the highway on an unpaved road—conventional 2WD sedans will be fine.
