Chambers Pillar – Simpson Desert, Australia



© All rights reserved – by Walrus62

Chambers Pillar was fashioned from sandstone deposited and worn down over 350 million years. It was an essential landmark guiding the area’s earliest pioneers on their means from Adelaide to Alice Springs. John MacDouall Stuart first recorded the pillar in 1860 and named it after James Chambers, one among his South Australian sponsors.

The native Aboriginal individuals imagine that the pillar is the Gecko ancestor Itirkawara. Banished for taking a spouse from the mistaken pores and skin group, he retreated into the desert. After they stopped to relaxation they became distinguished rocky formations – Itirkawara into the pillar, and the lady into Citadel Rock, 500m to the north-east.

Situated 160 kilometres South of Alice Springs, within the Simpson Desert.  50 Metres in top.
