Easy track
Starting from the dirt carpark/campground off Devils Marbles Road, Davenport, this walk takes you on a circuit in the Karlu Karlu / Devils Marbles Conservation Reserve, exploring the eastern part of the granite-bouldered land along the way. These extraordinary boulders are well-known for their physics-defying placement on top of each other. The name of the reserve originated from John Ross who was a Scottish Royal Navy officer and explorer. Back in 1870, he said “This is the Devil’s country; he’s even emptied his bag of marbles around the place!” referring to Australia. You can get more detailed information from the interpretive signposts in the area. Please be respectful and refrain yourself from climbing the historic boulders as they are spiritually and culturally important to the land’s traditional Aboriginal owners. Avoid warmer months as you’ll be exposed to the sun quite a lot. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
