Amazing and magical place. We went at sunset to take photos, which was well worth the stop. Highly recommend. Great national park toilets and benches. An excellent example of brilliant red rock formations and the wonders of Mother Nature.

With hundreds of kilometers of almost barren surroundings, Karlu Karlu makes for a nice spot to set up the tent and enjoy both the sunset and the sunrise while you observe the changing colors on the rocks. Having said that, I would not come here...More

Get in early as the Grey Nomads infest the place by early afternoon. Bring your camera as the sunset and sunrise are great times for photographs. Cost per person $3.30 into the honesty box. Basic long drop toilets are the only facilities.

Wow we found some marbles, perfectly shaped rocks in the middle of no where. Definitely worth a visit. Some sections they ask you not to climb on just keep an eye out for the signs. Take sunscreen a hat and wear good walking shoes. We...More

The contrast between the rocks and the sky is stunning, especially early in the morning or late afternoon. A large campground with fire places and bbq's, as well as toilets.

We camped here and loved it. Really great place to see the sun rise and set. If you are going to climb make sure you wear sensible shoes or go bare foot. There is WiFi near the toilets, please note there is no phone signal.

Unmanned site with no facilities other than what is mentioned above. Follow road round to back of the Marbles where there is a honesty box with envelopes. Lovely isolated spot, very quiet when we were there.
