Karlu Karlu, otherwise knowns as the Devils Marbles, is an iconic spot on the famous Binns Track. Picture ancient rock formations that have fallen out of the sparkling blue skies of the Barkly Tablelands — and you'll have yourself the Devils Marbles. Defying gravity and what seems like science altogether, these giant granite boulders are scattered across a wide valley 95 kilometres south of Tennant Creek.

The Karlu Karlu/Devils Marbles Conservation Reserve has a camping area complete with cosy fireplaces where you can relax and chew the fat with your travel buddies. Stay until the morning, and enjoy the Devils Marbles when they're at their best during sunset (or sunrise, if you're game).
