Chamber's Pillar.

Chamber's Pillar can be found in a 340 hectare Reserve 160 km south of Alice Springs in the Northern Territory of Australia. The road into Chamber's Pillar is unsealed and can be closed after heavy rains in the area.

The Pillar towers 50 metres above the surrounding plain and history has it recorded that sandstone deposits were laid down in the area 350 million years ago. Since then wind and rain have eroded away the softer material, leaving this solitary column of pebbly sandstone.
