The Devils Marbles ... eggs of the Rainbow Serpent

Copyright Northern Territory Tourist Commission
In the creation story of the Dreaming, the Rainbow Serpent fashioned the earth and then returned to a spot east of the Kimberleys at a place where the rainbow meets the earth. The Rainbow Serpent's eggs fossilised and became what non-Aborigines now call the Devils Marbles. The Aborigines know them as Karlukarlu. This collection of huge, round, red-colored boulders is found in the Tennant Creek region of Australia's Northern Territory.
