Love this place about 100kms south of Tennant Creek, NT. You could crawl all over them with ease and they are great to see at sunset. If you are staying at the adjoining campground (behind them) it is recommended that you to come by early...More

How these rock formations came about is beyond me. Delicately balanced rocks are everywhere. Sunsets were fantastic photo opportunities. Nice but very small camping area for minimal cost.

You can take dogs with you but make sure they are on a lead, I noticed a couple there with no lead and no collar on their dog. Great to look around and read about how they were formed and why.

There's not much to the marbles, just a few walks and a drop toilet (use so you don't have to use Wycliffe wells bathroom). Absolutely beautiful, gigantic rocks just sitting on top of each other. Good spot for a picnic, the flys weren't even that...More

Photos don't do justice to places like this. It really is pretty amazing and cool. Great place to stop, leg stretch, let the kiddies climb to get some energy out before hitting the road again!

The granite outcrops are in big contrast to the otherwise long, flat landscape. Just off the road good for young and old to stretch a leg and feel the isolation. Some free camp but not sure its really allowed?

There is so much more to this site than you see in photos! The boulders go for miles. They were fascinating to walk/climb around. Must see!

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.
