Day 24 - Wolfe Creek Crater
Shire Of Halls Creek, Western Australia
After a fairly tense time getting to Wolfe Creek and setting up in the dark, we woke up to quite a lovely place surrounded by lovely grass plains.
We visited Wolfe Creek Crater -it was created by a metoerite that hit the ground about 300,000 years ago. The crater is about 850m wide and was originally approx 120m deep (but over time has filled and is now approx 20m deep). Down in the crater we could see lots of trees and grass. We walked into the crater and on the ground there was salt - which comes up through the sand when it rains.
The rest of the day we spent travelling through Halls Creek to Purnululu National Park to camp (The Bungle Bungles). This is a very basic camp ground with a long drop toilet! The road in here was also very rough (took about 2 hours to travel 64Km)!
