Heading Down To Alice Springs

Sep 6 to 11 We are now back on to the Stuart Highway heading south to Alice Springs about 1,500 kms away. This is the same road we came up to Darwin on and we revisit Edith Springs and Banka Banka for overnight stops. Along the way we spot a bush fire and take a diversion to look at the ‘Devil’s Marbles’. The site is known as Karlu Karlu to the land’s Aboriginal traditional owners and consists of gigantic, rounded granite boulders, some spectacularly poised, is a remarkable landscape. Scattered clusters of these ‘marbles’, including many balancing rocks, are spread across a wide, shallow valley. The Devils Marbles is a nationally and internationally recognised symbol of Australia’s outback.
