a meteorite of that size would make a crater approximately 3 kilometers in diameter. wow! i would suspect one would not miss that crater.... well the size of the crater also depends on the velocity and angle of the "meteorite" when it hit the ground.

Meteorite Sighted in New South Wales

June 17, 2004

A METEORITE reportedly the size of a house fell on the NSW south coast
overnight, exploding in a bright flash, police said today.

A driver on the Hume Highway shortly after 9pm (AEST) near Menangle reported
an object the size of a house falling from the sky.

The object fell east of the Hume Highway, possibly in an escarpment near the
top of a hill at Bulli, police were told.

The meteorite was described as glowing silver in colour and similar to an
artillery shell when it exploded with a bright flash on impact.

Workers at the Sydney Airport Tower said they saw a meteorite about 9pm,
police said.

No other reports were received by police and extensive police patrols of the
area did not turn up the space debris.

Only one of those links work. The story has been removed from the first two sites, and the third only has the same info that you posted.

Still no pics.
