Henbury Meteorites camping area
The park can be reached in a conventional vehicle. Take the Stuart Hwy south of Alice Springs for 130 km, then turn onto the gravel road leading to Watarrka National Park and drive for 8 km, then take the turn-off north for 5 km to reach the reserve’s entrance. You’ll need to bring your own drinking water and collect firewood before entering the park. Dogs are allowed on leads in the carpark only. Do not remove any of the meteorite fragments.

When the Henbury meteorite split into chunks and hit the earth at 40 000 kph, it left 12 large craters. Marvel at the impact when you take the self-guided walk around the craters.
