Karlu Karlu-Devils Marbles Conservation Reserve Reviews
C'est très beau de part la forme et la couleur des rochers. Faire les deux chemins qui partent de l'aire de repos.

Are on the way from Alice Springs to Tennant Creek past there and have seen a bunch of buses with tourists, so only quickly photographed out the window.
Travelling around Australia can be exciting, and Devils Marbles is one of them. This place is considered one of the oldest surface of this planet and essential for Aboriginal people. It's a great place to go for a walk, watch the sunset or just a break when you are driving through Australia.
The Devils Marbles are located on the Stuart Highway, just below Tennent Creek. I visited in the first week of May. The temperature was perfect, but the flies were unbearable. You could not explore the area without wearing a fly net over your hat. But apart from that, the day use area has parking available for quite a few vans and pets are allowed in this area. At the nearby caravan park they are not. As the temperature was mild, we left our dogs in the bus and explored the area in 30 minutes or so. The marbles themselves are amazing with many seemingly just balanced on their edge. They look like the slightest push and they would topple over, which I can assure you is not the case. Piles of rocks look like they had been stacked in place by the hands of a giant. Some gave completely snapped in half centuries ago. The Devils Marbles are a must visit if you ever travel the Stuart Highway. Be sure to take your fly net with you if you travel in early May.
