Travel Tips for Tennant Creek

Devils Marbles

by Zanzibargirl

The Devils Marbles Conservation Reserve is approximately 104 kilometres, 65 miles south of Tennant Creek. An amazing place of geographical interest, the aboriginals believed this to be the eggs of the mythological Rainbow serpent. And others believe it to be a site made by something much more extraterrestrial - the work of UFO's. Whichever you believe, these rocks are a pretty cool site to see and one of the well known tourist sites of the NT. Geographically formed due to the movement of plates and thousands of years of erosion, the marbles will always be surrounded by myth and mystery... or are these beliefs in alien life forms seriously a suggestion that someone has just "lost their marbles"?

Tennant Creek - The Golden Heart of the NT

by Zanzibargirl

Located 500 north of Alice Springs & 1000 kilometres south of Darwin Tennant Creek is a town full of Aboriginal Warumungu Culture & goldmining history. Known as the Golden Heart of the NT you can visit one of the old mining sights at Battery Hill to get an insite of the mining that began here in the 1930's. You can also explore the Old Telegraph Station 11 km north of Tennant Creek.

The town itself was for us just a pass through to the nearby Devils Marbles. After watching the lady at the mine try & scare off a snake with a scary looking rake I began to wonder if people around here have lost a little of their marbles.

The devils marbles themselves are an amazing geological find that has been caused by years of erosion carving egg like rock into brilliant landmarks. Over time they will continue to change shape slowy as has Tennant Creek as different era's see the town become something else new to explore.

The Devils Marbles

by Zanzibargirl

"Lost your marbles?"

Everyone knows the saying "Have you lost your marbles?". Pertaining more to sanity than a heap of rocks in the Australian desert, yet out there in outback northern territory there is a scattering of rocks, known better as "The Devils Marbles".

Explained by the local Aboriginals to be the mythological eggs of the dreamtime rainbow serpent, they are part of a 1800 hectare conservation site and whether you believe the myths and the legends or the stories of out galaxy UFO's, they are a geological site by which to be amazed...

Formed by giant blocks created by fault lines when the plates of gondwana land moved thousands of years ago, over time they have eroded to become this rather interesting tourist site.

The aboriginals call the boulders Karlwekarlewe which means round objects. They are located about 104 kilometres or 65 miles south of Tennant Creek (about 1hrs drive).
