An amazing view at sunrise
May 2021
Karlu Karlu (Devils Marbles)
We drove from Tennant Creek to be at Karlu Karlu for sunrise – about an hour’s drive. It was well worth the effort to see the colours change as the sun came up. We stopped at the day centre car park and did the easy walk around the Mayijanku Walk about 30 minutes return to the caravan park and back.

Magnificent!

About 100 klms out of Tennant creek on the way to Alice Springs. Definitely worth the stop. These rocks are a sight to be seen, beautiful. Loved the walks on both sides, an easy walk. Can be seen from the highway but definitely worth the stop, you won't be disappointed. Lots of information on the walks and fabulous photo opportunities.

Magnificient but no drones please
Sep 2020
Most has been said in the previous reviews about the serenity of this place and the option to camp here on the long journey between Alice Springs and the North.
It is a calm, spiritual place while at the same time offering spectacular rock formations. Sunset is particularly nice as the birds flutter around and the atmosphere is so peaceful.
Our end of day experience was spoilt by one person and his rather large drone. The birds took off in flight and the rest of us had to endure the loud mechanical noise and the sight of the drone crossing in front of what should have been a very special experience.
This is no place for drones.

Nice see after hours of nothing
Feb 2021
Was a nice sight to see. After seeing casts of nothing for Klms this was a lovely stop. Amazing how all these lovely weird shape rocks balancing all in one area. Has tracks to walk, camping sight, toilets and picnic areas. We had driven to camp but as no one else there, wife was little scared lol as camping sight right at back away from road, so we drove on after little look around. Very cheap camping with payment to be left in honesty box.

A must stop! Well worth it
Oct 2020 • Couples
It was highly recommended to us to check out Devil’s Marbles on way to Darwin & we are so glad we did! There’s more to it than what you see from the road driving past. Plenty of parking spots & toilets near car park. The Rocks are all different shades & shapes, each very unique. I’m glad we had our hats on with the fly nets coz the flys were sticking to us!
I imagine it would be a beautiful spot to stop during sunset too.

Lovely sunset photo opportunity
Oct 2020 • Family
Good place to get some memorable sunset photos. Not the best place to be during the middle of the day as the heat and flies can get a bit much, especially with small kids. Would be worth a sunrise visit as well. Has free camping but there are no showers or shade.

Must see
Jan 2020 • Couples
Just a quick turn off the highway, you will find a nice shaded interpretive area, free wifi and toilets. Several walk options from short to longer depending on weather and fitness. All walks were easy to do, but on natural paths of shale, sand or rock. If you want the quick route, just head around the marbles from the free car park. Solid footwear is not mandatory as you should not climb on the marbles.

Iconic NT location
Jul 2019 • Couples
We overnighted with our camper in the national parks campground here: there are two locations where you can camp and both are very popular with passing caravaners and campers. You need to get here early to secure a location.

The campground has pit toilets, tables and fire pits as well as spectral views of the Devil’s Marbles themselves.

There are a number of well-market walking trails in the area that allows for great exploration of the site: sunup and sundown can be quite spectacular.

A great overnight stop that should be included by all first time travellers to the region.

Such an interesting and wondrous place which is a must to visit in the Territory. You can camp here or simply visit on a day trip. Toilet facilities are clean and absolutely love this mysterious area. You can travel the world but never see this really strange phenomenon. Take your time to really experience this absolutely incredible place.
