Amazing rock formations to visit between when travelling. Plenty of parking, no water. Reasonable tourist information on billboards Caravan parking area near Devils Marbles was full .. even at 2pm in the afternoon with overbite stoppers. Get there early !

You have to stop and walk around the Marbles, they are fascinating. Seeing them at sunset is a must!

This was on our way from Ti Tree to Alice Springs. Worth our time, interesting rock formations. Depends on a persons interest. We drove through slowly, towing a caravan. Stopped to take some photos, and rejoined the highway to head further south. I have friends,...More

Have a quick stop if you're driving by but don't make a special trip, it's not worth it. Sunset wasn't anything spectacular.

Outstanding landscape, you have to see it to believe it, once you read up about the geology it all becomes clear. This is definitely a must see, and only 8 minutes from the devils marbles hotel a place you must stay at.

Unmanned site with no facilities other than what is mentioned above. Follow road round to back of the Marbles where there is a honesty box with envelopes. Lovely isolated spot, very quiet when we were there.
