On our way to Alice Springs we stopped at the Devils Marbles. I thought the Devils Marbles would just be a couple of rocks balancing in about 4-5 big columns but no, I get big masses of rock all over the place in the most amazing formations!
We got to the campsite early and found the best spot with a bench and two gumtrees. It was bonza. The campsite was right inside the Devils Marbles and next to the biggest rock formations.
When we were setting up we had the urge to go up and climb all over the rocks, so we spent a few hours exploring all over the rocks.
In the evening we went up the rocks and sat at the top to watch the the sunset. We had some drinks and spotted a rock wallaby up on the rock with us.
One of the most amazing things about the Devils Marbles is the colours of the rocks. The were so epically orange.
We had a dinner and stories under the stars. They were so bright, we saw satellites passing overhead and even saw a shooting star! Spike told stories about the legendary Screaming Banshee that used to haunt the Devils Marbles, and then tried to scare me when we went out to the bush toilet in the dark of the night.
In the morning we got up early and Spike filmed the rocks changing colours as the sun rose.
It has been one of the best things we have seen so far. I really enjoyed jumping and ninjaing around the Marbles but now have legs full of scratches, cuts and bruises.
So if you happen to be passing the Devils Marbles you should ninja in and check out the awesomeness for yourself.
OK Will, we will.
Awesome colours in the vid. What happened to the screaming Banshee?
Wow, beautiful. I imagine there are two little boys here who would have laughed themselves silly if they’d seen your Ninja moves. Love from all the Maccas to you all.
AWESOME! Love the photography. Hope you didn’t take any marbles with you!
Now I sooo want to go to the Devil’s Marbles. Sounds like a great place for a ninja duel. I finally finished reading HP and just saw the final movie. It was awesome!! What is the water like there? Skype soon? Xman
