“Devils Marbles - camping”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

Spent a night here in July. Not long enough!! Could easily have spent another night/day here exploring and just soaking up the atmosphere.The whole conservation area is magical, and well worth a visit. The different colours as the sun rises and sets have to be seen to be believed. The camping area fills up pretty quickly in the cooler months, so best to get there before 3pm. We camped on the eastern side of the ground, lit our fire and watched the moon come up. Saw a dingo or two but they are quite timid and nothing to be concerned about. Make sure you have enough firewood on you as it is illegal to collect wood there. Payment for camping is an honesty system, and cost us $7.70 for our family of four. If you don't have time to camp though, the area is free to enter and explore. No showers, just toilets.

“Nice stop for half an hour”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

As there isn't much more between Alice Springs and Tennant Creek than these giant boulders, it is easily the highlight in the region. That said, half a hour is enough to appreciate them and take a few shots. I would be a shame to miss it.

“Great spot for photos!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2012

As you pass right by on the highway out of Tennant Creek, you'd be silly to not stop and have a look at these great rock formations. Camping is available.

“Stunning”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2012

We visited the Devils Marbles on the 29th and 30th May 2012. We actually went there 3 times, once on the way to Wauchope Hotel and then came back for the Sunset and Sunrise the next day. The rocks, colour, light and feel are just superb. A definate "must see" on any ones list. What really did surprise us however was the great number of caravans parked at the rear of the site, but noone in sight. We seemed to have the whole area to ourselves and were able to take heaps of fantastic photos. For photographers.. it is magical. Maybe the very cold wind had something to do keeping people away.
