Piled up by forces that seem to be supernatural, these round rocks lie in the flat Australian outback. A must-see for everyone exploring here!

Drive off the Stuart Highway at the Devil's Marbles (Karlu Karlu), the exit is well signposted. Stop at the parking lot.

From the parking lot, you can access the trail around the main marbles. It is very easy to follow and leads you once around the hill. Follow the track, keeping the rocks to your left.

Having surrounded the rock formation halfway, you will see a small path leading away from the main track. Follow this path to climb onto these spectacular rocks and enjoy wonderful views about close-by formations, which are not as high as the one you will be exploring! Getting up on the rocks includes some climbing.

Another plus: this place tends to be, since it is remote, not very crowded. If you are lucky, no other people will be around.

For campers: Very close to the Devil's marbles is the Karlu Karlu campground, open to camper vans and tents. A prime outback location without the annoyances of the roadhouse campgrounds.
