At South Kolan, not far from Bundaberg in Queensland, there are unusual craters with no explanation for their existence – the Mystery Craters.
They don’t cover a very large area and are apparently not connected to each other underground as the water levels in each of them varies.
They were only discovered in 1971 by a farmer ploughing his fields and their origin has defied definition since then.
Naturally, they have become a local tourist attraction and for a small fee I decided to check them out. It’s one of those arrows on the main road to Gin Gin that I’ve often passed and thought “One day I must take that detour and see what this is all about!” Well, now I’ve done it. ✅
You can walk around the perimeter fencing and there is also a viewing platform with an informative commentary to give you an overall perspective of this strange phenomenon.
The craters remain an unexplained mystery as noted on the venue’s website.
Another ‘mystery’ detour for me turned out to be an interesting one!
