  • This sandstone formation is a must see experience, full of history dating back to Stuart in 1860 in an incredible part of Australia. Castle Rock is nearby and adds to the experience  more »
  • Well worth taking a 4WD trip out here, it's a long day but with Rainbow Valley also on the trip itinerary it was magic. I went with Elite Tours and they were excellent.  more »
  • Last 40km of the road are rough but it was a good day trip out there. It didn't seem that great of a place to go, but when I got there it did blow my mind. Great views from up the walk.
  • Stunning landmark with an interesting & important history. It is a 350-million-year-old sandstone formation 160 km south of Alice Springs in the Northern Territory of Australia. It rises almost 50 metres above the surrounding plains & it was impossible to take a bad photo of this location. Simply stunning.
