This is really worth visiting if you like geology and also incredible to imagine what a meteorite can do (or four). Different than Gosse Bluff ( which I also would recommend) but if you can imagine the impact - stunning. There are toilets and camping spots (small fee) but you will find rude caravaners taking all the spots and leaving you nowhere to park. Felt sorry that a few visitors just turned around and left not enjoying the area. Maybe this should be monitored by rangers.

Took the 2WD hire car foe a go on the dirt road and it loved it and with out issue. Obviously 2WD cars are not recommended on dirt roads but it can be done to Henbury Craters, albeit slowly. The road is rough, bumpy, with many wash outs - the road was dry at the time and was in a fair condition. If it had rained I reckon I would have probably turned back or stayed on the Stuart Highwat.

Once you come to the crater site you are not greeted with a lot - there are toilet facilities. There was two picnic shelters and there are a couple of fire/bbq pits/fireplaces around. You will need to bring your own firewood and water.

Camping is permitted and the area has a turnaround loop suitable for caravans - the 15km road drive in is possible for a caravan - but take it easy.

The walk around the craters is easy - 1.5km along generally flat track - that is even, with limited stones. You can walk down into the craters if you have the desire - it is a bit steeper and one of the craters has water in it (suitably named the Water Crater). 12 craters in all ranging from 7 to 180m wide and up to 15m deep - see if you can find them all; the map at the entry shows them all, but you have to figure it out for yourself - 7 are easy to find, the remaining five are small and eroded and blended with the surrounding land. One crater is a clump of trees.

Allow 30 minute visit - you can spend more time and you can probably do it quicker.

There are no fees for visiting, but there are fees to camp. No pets are allowed around the craters - they are allowed on a lease in the carpark/camping area.

There are information boards this include geological descriptions, fauna, and historical information. It is not Wolf Creek crater but it is worth visiting.

On our five hour drive from Alice Springs to Uluru at around 125 kilometres from Alice Springs there is a sign to Henbury Meteorites Conservation Reserve. It is a good 40 minute drive on an unpaved road from the turn off at the main road to the site , so it’s best to have a jeep. The reserve contains over a dozen craters, which were formed when a fragmented meteorite hit the Earth’s surface. Henbury is one of the world's best preserved examples of a small meteorite crater field. The site is large mainly because the meteorite broke into pieces before hitting the ground. The craters are quite small. It’s an interesting place but at 39 degrees, we did not spend too much time at the site unfortunately.

On est arrivé par Ernest Giles Road. On venait de Watarrka NP. Au début la piste est roulante puis devient caillouteuse et on est obligé de rouler prudemment et d'utiliser les bas-côtés. sur le parcours on a croisé une voiture puis quatre après les cratères.
Ces cratères de météorites sont surprenants. Le plus grand est le plus spectaculaire. Il y a des panneaux explicatifs. La visite dure une demi-heure.

This was our first visit to a sigfificant Australian meteorite site, where about 5 impact craters were easy to find. Track is well marked, signposted and explained. The dirt road to site was in reasonable condition. Don't forget to leave a comment in the box.

The road in was a little bumpy but easy. The campsite was small with one drop toilet. Low camping fees.
Short walk to the meteor crater. Easy to follow path. Information boards.
A chunk of the meteor can be seen in Alice springs museum.

The reserve is not too far from the main highway. The dirt road to here is usually quite a good run. The camp area is basic, but adequate with a low fee.

The main crater is an enormous hole in the ground, and would have been amazing to witness. From the main road it looks just like the surrounding West MacDonnell ranges - except that it is by itself. A hot air balloon ride over this area would be in order. The road in is a bit rough but the scenery and information provided is worth the trip.
