Tag Archives: Chambers Pillar

It’s a long day trip out to Chambers Pillar from Alice Springs and definitely worth the effort.

Mr Chambers (after whom the Pillar was named) funded John McDouall Stuart’s exploration so Mr Stuart could do nothing less than name this giant clay, sandstone and silt formation after him.

On the way out to the pillar is Ewaninga Rock Art Reserve. It is a pretty special place, with a large clay pan water source and amazing 360 degree views of the landscape.
