Devils Marbles

Karla Karla

sunny 26 °C

Karla Karla Conservation Park (Devils Marbles) is a perfect place to stop and overnight along the Stuart Highway, 400km from Alice Springs, so we camped there for one night. It features amazing colossal red boulders of granite, some balanced precariously upon each other and some split open like glass marbles. The reflection of the sunset and sunrise light make the boulders appear even more stunning.

The local Warumungu people believe from their dreamtime stories that the Rainbow Serpent laid its eggs here and it turned into stone. This is a sacred meeting place for four different Aboriginal language groups, who come here to perform ceremonies.
