Starting from the car park on Devils Marbles Road/Old Stuart Highway, Warumungu, this walk takes you on a small circuit in the Karlu Karlu / Devils Marbles Conservation Reserve, exploring the reddish granite boulders along the way. The words ‘Karlu Karlu’ mean ‘round boulders’ in the Warumungu Aboriginal language. The said boulders range from 50 centimetres to a whopping 6 metres with some of the split in half like they were surgically cut. The area is home to cute little fairy martins as well as black-headed monitor/goannas and sand goannas. If you want to learn more about the history & fauna of the area, why it’s called Devils Marbles and how the rocks were formed, keep an eye out for the interpretive signposts. 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. 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.
