25 mins from Wycliffe Well. Great for photos and an easy walk around. I believe you can stay here in the camp ground but didn't see any amenities. I spent 3 hours walking around and had a great time.

You may well think that these rocks have been placed in position by hand but it is the result of soil erosion that has exposed them. A remarkable sight.

Super cheap camping in amongst the devil's marbles. Only pit toilets, but many of them and clean. No other facilities except tables. and fire pits. The information signs are good and the walks around the site are interesting.

Have done all the NT attractions and I reckon this place is right up there with the best. I didn't realise the magnitude of the area, truly amazing, should be publicised more

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.
