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.

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.
