Picture of / about 'Chambers Pillar' the Northern Territory - Chambers Pillar2 - Chambers Pillar (Contributed by: DerrickJessop  3147 pictures  )
After 160 Kms of scrub, loose sand dunes and rocky ridges an undulating plain appears dotted with isolated sandstone outcrops, distant messas and ahead the largest of them all, Chamber's Pillar, looking decidedly squat above its large scree base. Visited first by John MacDouall Stuart in April 1860 it has been a beacon for many early day explorers and adventure seekers since.

From a neighbouring outcrop the massive size of Chamber's Pillar can be appreciated, rising up 50 metres above the plain. Note the size of our 4WD on the left, and the vast expanse of the plain that gives way to the Simpson Desert eventually. A track leads up to the pillar and a board walk has been erected partly around the base.

Picture of / about 'Chambers Pillar' the Northern Territory - Chambers Pillar4 - Chambers Pillar (Contributed by: DerrickJessop  3147 pictures  )
From the board walk other outcrops and messas can be clearly seen. It is thought that 350 million years ago all this was one vast sandstone plate, uplifted from the sea, which, eroding away, has left these outcrops. One cannot help asking where has all the eroded sandstone gone to?
This area is preserved as the 340 hectare Chamber's Pillar Historical Reserve. Stuart named the pillar after James Chambers, one of his South Australian supporters.

Eventually Chamber's Pillar will become like all the other skeletal outcrops, slowly wearing away to millions of grains of sand. But I doubt than any of us will notice much change in our lifetimes.
