Travelling further south, you will find the Devils Marbles right in the middle of nowhere. They are gigantic rock balls, rounded by erosion, and cracking due to differences in temperature (night - day). Actually, they are the remains of an ancient mountain....

Directions: A day's travel south of Kakadu NP

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
