I think you can tell hubby that he's not quite correct.

Stonehenge is a Neolithic and Bronze Age megalithic monument located near Amesbury in the English county of Wiltshire, about 8 miles (13 km) northwest of Salisbury. It is composed of earthworks surrounding a circular setting of large standing stones and is one of the most famous prehistoric sites in the world. Archaeologists think the standing stones were erected between 2500 BC and 2000 BC although the surrounding circular earth bank and ditch, which constitute the earliest phase of the monument, have been dated to about 3100 BC.

The site and its surroundings were added to the UNESCO's list of World Heritage Sites in 1986 and it is also a legally protected Scheduled Ancient Monument. Stonehenge itself is owned and managed by English Heritage whilst the surrounding downland is owned by the National Trust.

Stonehenge is located at 51°10?43.9?N, 1°49?31.6?W.

No need for the apology Murray (don't you know us Wombat's have very thick skins), I didn't read any sarcasm in your reply. It sounds like your UK sojourn was a ball.

Laura, you could be thinking of Murphy's Haystacks in SA about halfway between Streaky Bay and Port Kenny. Slightly higher than six foot by a long shot, & I don't know about balancing ones,as we didn't have time to explore all.Facinating and very interesting, none-the-less.
There's the Devils Marbles in NT and also Stonehenge (or Balancing Rock Fromations) near Glen Innes NSW, but I think these are man-made & something to do with Celtic culture (?)

Dear Laura,

I know you asked this question a while ago but I came across a piece in a book I'm reading...the problem is that it's in WA. Near Dampier ..on the Burrup Peninsula there are The Standing Stones. "Shards of narrow stone had been selected and wedged in an upright position, silhoutted against the clear blue sky on top of the ridge. There was no way they could have been a natural phenomenon." This area is also where you can find petroglyphs..Aboriginal rock carvings. Anyway, thought I'd just send this to you in case it is what your husband might have been talking about.
I've been to Murphy's Haystacks in SA. They are more like big loaves of round bread in distorted shapes..if that makes sense!! The area is lovely though and they are well worth going to see.
Good luck with all your holiday plans. We are heading off last week July/first week August and can't wait.

Happy travels

Vivien C
