Wolfe Creek Crater National Park
Camping and toilet facilities available.
Located on the edge of the Great Sandy Desert lies the Wolfe Creek Crater National Park. The National Park allows you to view the world's second largest crater, from the rim. The crater is a fascinating discovery and monumental attraction.
The crater is a massive 853 metres in diameter and bares a depth of 61 metres. The exact age of the Wolfe Creek Crater is not known; yet an estimation of 2 million years old has been made. The harsh climate and dryness of the Halls Creek area have aided in slowing down erosion of the crater. With such a phenomenal attraction the only one thing for certain is that every traveller visiting the North West must see Wolfe Creek.
Aboriginal Dreaming tells of two rainbow snakes formed, nearby Stuart and Wolfe Creek, as they crossed the desert. The crater is said to be where one snake emerged from the ground.
