Kunjarra- The Pebbles


Skip staying over night in Tennant Creek and as soon as you have restocked, venture a little further north, to the free camp site Kunjarra.

Easily found, well signed and only a few kilometres off the main road, Kunjarra or The Pebbles is a sacred indigenous women's site found on the turn off just past the Telegraph Station.

The facilities here are basic, but all you need with bush loos, open fire BBQ, picnic tables and some basic shelter.

Kunjarra - The Pebbles. A smaller version of the Devils Marbles


The campground is surrounded by curious rock formations reminiscent of the Devils Marbles found further south.

Kunjarra proves to be a spectacular spot to photograph sunrises and sunsets. You can also read about the cultural significance of the area on the information boards.

So no need to stop in Tennant Creek and camp amongst the bustle. Kunjarra is a serene and quiet spot where you can kick back and rest and recover before you continue on your long drive up the Stuart Highway.
