MT HYPIPAMEE CRATER / by Ethan Astall

Mount hyp-hyp-hyp-hooray, hypipamee - the drive out here through the table lands is rather far but the walk to the crater itself from the car park isn’t strenuous in anyway - but the view and the story behind this thing is pretty bloody crate..

Mount hypipamee crater; NQ, 61m to the surface from the top and a further 85m deep below the surface - the result of a volcanic molten rock explosion a few years back, some gold diggers stumbled upon this place when they almost fell in - seems they were destined for bigger and crater things.

They say the chances of finding the elusive cassowary or tree kangaroo out here are pretty high too, despite continuous tree kangaroo hunting without sighting, we were lucky enough to catch this cassowary who seems to have stuck around on the hunt for his shoes.
