Other References/Comments:

There are some interesting information on the boards about the recent history of the stones, including Council removing one and placing it in the middle of Tennant Creek as a tourist attraction, much to the dismay of the locals; it was later returned.

Comments

After the marvels of The Marbles, this was a pretty uninspiring place, that you can't get very excited about. The drive in is very badly corrugated road, that if your vehicle is precious, don't even try it. Personally, leave this one off your bucket list!
