    Tennant Creek - Devils Marbles

    June 21, 2017 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

    The Devils Marbles near Tennant Creek, known as Karlu Karlu by the local Warumungu Aboriginals,are a collection of huge, red, rounded granite boulders scattered across a wide,shallow valley. The boulders formed millions of years ago when an upsurge of molten rock reached the surface and spread out in a solid layer. Erosion over millions of years, caused the large block of erupted granite to crack and split into rectangular blocks, progressing to erode the sharp corners to smooth and finally rounded edges . Many of the giant boulders are precariously balanced on top of one another. The area surrounding the boulders is somewhat flat which makes this huge rounded collection even more spectacular.Read more

    Mount Isa to Tennant Creek

    June 20, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 19 °C

    We're in the Northern Territory so have gained half an hour! Very minor stops for coffee and refreshment today at Camooweal and the Roadhouse. The country is much more open compared to the savannah. Hardly any dead animals on the road and few cattle. The termite mounds are deep red, compared to the grey of a couple of days ago. There are clusters of "dressed" ones on both sides of the border - a trend apparently started about 3 years ago.Read more
