Wolfe Creek Meteorite Crater, Australia

Australia has some of the best examples of meteorite impact sites anywhere in the world and Wolfe Creek Crater, Western Australia, is one of the most spectacular. The floor lies 55 metres below the rim of the crater, and although partly buried by windblown sand, the rim of the crater rises to 25 metres above the surrounding plain.

I thought it was the second largest in the world but I can’t find evidence of this on the internet.
