The Devils Marble’s
A near sunset photo of one of the Devils Marble’s. On this day I drove the 400 plus kilometres from Alice Springs just to take several landscape photos of the Marble’s. A long day’s drive in the car but worth the effort in the drive, such a beautiful location. In my opinion the best time of the day to photograph these beautiful rocks is late in the day just before sunset. Like so many places you need to spend some time hear, have a good look around and explore there is a lot to see so take a good pair of walking shoes and spend a good few hours.
The Devils Marbles Conservation Reserve is located 105 km south of Tennant Creek, Northern Territory Australia. It is 390 km north of Alice Springs (a good 4 hours drive). There is a camping area next to the Marbles which will allow the weary traveler. The nearest settlement is the small town of Wauchope located 9 km which is known as the UFO Capital of Australia, strange but true.
