Visitors to Karlu Karlu/Devils Marbles Conservation Reserve will soon enjoy upgraded facilities with the Northern Territory Government releasing a construction tender to upgrade the campground.
“Territory Government is investing in national parks and reserves to attract more tourists to the Territory.” Minister for Tourism Sport and Culture Lauren Moss said.
New-look campground will maximise the safe and efficient use of the space and provide a greater diversity of camping options for visitors.
More than 100,000 people visit Karlu Karlu each year with around 10,000 of them choosing to camp at the Reserve.
“Karlu Karlu is an iconic Territory landmark in the heart of the Barkly region and we are very privileged to have such an incredible, ancient formation of significant Aboriginal cultural heritage in our region.” Member for Barkly Gerry McCarthy said.
During the peak period, up to 70 cars and caravans use the camping area at any one time.
