Amazing place

Have done all the NT attractions and I reckon this place is right up there with the best. I didn't realise the magnitude of the area, truly amazing, should be publicised more

We stopped here briefly on our way north - there are some informative boards explaining the history, as well as how the rocks were formed. It's a relatively flat walk around the rocks. As others have noted, there's free wifi there.

We stopped at the marbles for lunch and had a wander round. There are information boards at the parking area explaining the geology and cultural significance which was interesting to read, and a level, gravel walking trail around the marbles themselves. There is also free Wi-Fi which is a bonus!

It's well worth taking a break from the highway to visit this area. It's an amazing area, really beautiful and very peaceful. There's a decent campground there too.

We travelled to the Devils Marbles in December. The good thing was we had no competition for a position to park our caravan. The only bad point was the heat! It was our fault for visiting at that time of year!! The camping area is clean and well laid out with plenty of shelters. You need to be self supporting... More

If you have the chance: be there in the afternoon before and for sunset. Take photos of the same spot in daylight/afternoon, sunset and at night.....THE MOST MAGIC PLACE in Australia (esp. since it s a bit out of the way, meaning not too crowded!), but try to spend the night there on the (very basic, but inspiring) campside right...

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.

If you are heading in the Stuart Highway between Alice Springs and Darwin be sure to take the side road to the Devils Marbles. You can't get lost and the road is a big U shape which will bring you back to the main road. As you head toward these impressive stones you see why people make detour. They are... More
