Karlu Karlu / Devils Marbles Conservation Reserve

National Parks and Reserves

Discover ancient granite boulders that seem to have dropped from the wide blue skies of the Barkly Tablelands, 95 kilometres south of Tennant Creek. Wander around Karlu Karlu / Devils Marbles where you’ll find boulders that are precariously balanced and defying gravity, scattered across a wide, shallow valley.

The Devils Marbles are a sacred site known as Karlu Karlu in the language of the traditional owners the Warumungu people. Formed over millions of years, they continue to crack and erode making for a unique view each time you visit.

Take your time to explore the region’s most famous landmark. Follow the walkways and learn via the information boards how the granite formations have withstood the eroding forces of wind and rain, unlike the surrounding sandstone. The fascinating geological marvel can be explored through a short self-guided walking trail with informative signage.

The Karlu Karlu/Devils Marbles Conservation Reserve offers a scenic bush camping area with fireplaces. Stay the night to ensure you’re there at sunset, the most dramatic time to experience the area. Camping fees apply and campsites must be booked online before you arrive.
