Caravan Overnight Stay
Beautiful property which is very well maintained and level for a caravan. Camp sites are on the same property as the mystery craters so was required to pay an extra fee when checking in.

Even better at night .....
Easy access to craters and cafe and crystals rooms from camp area, soft grass, no prickles, spacious, tranquil and well suited to families, singles or couples. Tasty food, delicious drinks, something more than you come across in an everyday cafe....a nice twist and imagination....extra flavours if you want. Soothing music that makes viewing all the crystal and gems a next level experience. Reasonably priced crystals and products which was wonderful for our little family budget. We all got a crystal each. The kids and I had a wonderful time in all. The platform overlooking the Craters at night with lights on the Craters was beautiful, something that can only be experienced if you stay over night. The hosts were genuinely beautiful caring people which made our stay even better...we will definitely be back soon....

Camping by the Mystery Craters
Lovely quiet camp spot in a fantastic setting. Loved the lush green setting and being able to wonder around the mystery craters at different times of the day/night. The hosts were super friendly and are putting in a lot of hard work to get this place looking amazing. Loved that the campsite is great value and located not to far from both Bunderburg and Gin Gin. If your looking for somewhere unique to stay that is budget friendly, quiet and relaxing, not to far from the tourist trail this is definitely a great option!

Mystery Craters was a great camping experience! The campsite was on a beautiful, private property that had bathrooms and a cafe. Duncan and Agnele were fantastic hosts, and the morning coffee was superb. I would definitely stay again!
