Information

Chambers Pillar Historical Reserve lies 160km south of Alice Springs, along the Old South Road on a turnoff to the west of Maryvale Station. The road is unsealed and sandy and may be closed after rain. After the Maryvale turnoff, a 4WD is required to negotiate a steep and rocky section. Then the track becomes sandy again but in 2009 the dune crossings were bulldozed removing any challenge.

The main feature of this 340 hectare Reserve is the pillar of sandstone first recorded by John MacDouall Stuart in April of 1860. Walking tracks explore the pillar and surrounding area. The camping area is located between Chambers Pillar and Castle Rock.
