15 Devils Marbles Images to Inspire - How were they formed?

Formed by erosion over millions of years, many of the giant stones are precariously balanced on top of one another, appearing to defy gravity! The marbles continue to crack and erode today, creating an ever-changing landscape.

If you have the chance, visit the beautiful site during sunrise and sunset, as the boulders appear to glow and change colour, from pink to bright red, similar to the other geological wonders in the Northern Territory, Uluru and Kata Tjuta.

  • This looks awesome!

  • At first I am not sure where it is but then I realize it’s in Australia.
    Nice pictures and cool scenery – especially I just revisited the photos of my trip to the outback earlier! @knycx.jounreying

  • Looks like you had this amazing place all to yourself 😀 Looks like a fund ay! Love the pictures and the marbles are really gravity defying. I really want to visit that place now!

    • Yes I’m so amazed too at how they defy gravity! Mother nature does the wonder!

  • The Devils Marbles are really stupendous. What a marvel of nature that the rocks are poised as they are. I am always fascinated by rocks and their shapes and formations. They stand as silent sentinels watching the passage of time.

    • Totally agree! They are indeed marvelous and probably the “wisest beings” on earth!

  • Heh, the name alone makes me laugh. Devil’s marbles. They look really cool though, almost otherworldly. I like the KACHOW picture. 😁

    • Glad you like it! Yes I had a lot of fun taking those pictures! You will enjoy too when you are there!

  • A couple of weeks ago I hiked to the Devil’s Marbleyard in Virginia. So cool that there is a similar named place elsewhere. Love your photos. They make me want to visit the rugged Australia outback.

    • Wow I wish to go Devil’s Marbleyard in Virginia. Is the landscape similar too?

  • These photos are awesome! It reminds me a lot of Bryce Canyon in Utah in the US. I’ve never been to Australia, so this is just adding to the reasons as to why I need to get there!
