The family won’t believe their eyes when they see the iconic Karlu Karlu/Devils Marbles; it’s the perfect place for young and old to explore as you’ll all feel small standing next to these 6 metre boulders.

The dreaming stories of the local Warmungu Aboriginal people believe that the Devils Marbles are the fossilised eggs of the Rainbow Serpent, and if you look closely perhaps you’ll discover that they are.

We have cowboys! If you’re after a true blue Aussie outback adventure you can also check out the local camp drafting, bronco branding, and rodeo events. The family will be sure to be amazed by the skill of these cowboys as they kick up the dust under thundering hooves.

A land of blue skies, boundless horizons, ancient landscapes and historic gold rush history, this is one of the outback’s best kept secrets.
