Raising Your Arms to the Sunrise at the Devil's Marbles, Australia
At just under 400km North of Alice Springs on the main Stuart Highway, which runs North/South through the centre of the Outback, the Devil's Marbles are, by any standards, in the middle of nowhere. But if you're planning a drive into the Red Centre in a camper van, this is absolutely where you have to spend the night. Don't just visit in the middle of the day or you'll miss one of the most spectacular sights imaginable. The Devil's Marbles are collection of huge, red granite boulders, piled up as if forgotten in a child's toybox. Just before dawn they look grey and faintly ominous against the pink sky, but at the moment when the sun peeks above the far horizon, they are flooded with light and transform from grey to brilliant orange, top to bottom as the sun rises. The only problem is that you really have to stay two nights, one to watch the sunrise from the ground—and the next to watch it from the top of the largest rock, arms outstretched as the sun hits your face!
