Getting there:

Travel north 393km on the Stuart Highway from Alice Springs, or 100km south from Tennant Creek and turn in to the signposted day use car park (not the campsite area).


Devils Marbles Conservation Reserve

Route/Trail notes:

The signposted pathway starts from the far side of the access road opposite the day use car park. After 150m turn left on the looped track and after a further 150m, you will see the track to your right that takes you up across the boulders to Nyanjiki Lookout. After a scout around, return to the looped track, turning right and this takes you all the way around this outcrop, before turning left back to start.



Other References/Comments:

The town of Wauchope is just 9km south of the Reserve, where overnight accommodation is available, or you can camp onsite.

There are several walks to enjoy, including the Karlu Karlu Walk, which is an easy short 20 minute return walk, commencing at the day use area car park. The 4km Nurrku Walk provides visitors with a longer opportunity to experience the wider Reserve, together with the Yakkula Loop.


A chance to get a higher elevation of the surrounding Reserve and to scramble across a few of the Marbles.

I have always wanted to see the marbles, and I was amazed to finally see them. Awesome.
