first_imgInside the house at Mystery CratersMr Chung said there had been a real tourism push in the Bundaberg region and the property offered a good opportunity due to its unique offering and the three bedroom Queenslander that “is getting a really good return”.“Personally, I think it is good value,” he said. “The Mystery Craters are unique and people are still baffled by them (the cause).”The website for Mystery Craters says the 35 unusually shaped craters were discovered by a previous owner while ploughing the field to plant zucchinis. They are believed to be about 25 million years old and are a mixture of sandstone and ochre, with some of the craters holding water and other rising and falling over time, according to the website.
