Worth the visit if passing

Interesting place to visit with informative signage. We had the place to ourselves and it was very tranquil. Low cost camping on site and surprisingly free wifi.

What a great camping spot! Fire pit. Clean toilets (a little smelly, but expected), beautiful backdrop. Honesty box. $3.30 per adult. Can't beat that for value.

Gorgeous location. I would think it would be impossible to take a bad photo here. The rock and sky colours are amazing. Well sign posted. Lots of places to walk around. Worth visiting for sunset and sunrise to see the different colours!!

Don't just drive by, spend the night at the camp ground $3.30 per person and enjoy the sunset . Remember to collect firewood before entering the camp ground and marbles.

Make sure you get out of your car and explore. Stunning view in the afternoon. Formations are much bigger than you think.

This is such an amazing place. Was disappointed to see people climbing on the rocks, it felt like a sacred place. Beautiful, will be back....

I'd seen pictures, and read reviews... and none prepared me for the majesty of this special place. Allow at least a few hours, if not longer. The formations extend further than you first think.

We were travelling to Alice Springs from Tennant Creek and did not know about Karlu Karlu, so we were amazed as we started to see the rocks as we drove down the highway. It is fantastic to be able to walk around the rocks and see at close range the geology of the area.
