East Warburton Basin
The East Warburton Basin in South Australia is the site of a large impact crater of the Carboniferous period (around 360-300 million years ago). The subterranean structure lies buried at a depth of ~4 km, and measures a minimum of 200 km in diameter. For comparison, Chicxulub crater is about 180 km in diameter.
