Kings Canyon

Just under 3 hours’ drive from Uluṟu (Ayers Rock) is the lesser known but equally remarkable Kings Canyon. This majestic chasm was formed over millions of years of erosion, slicing the earth 270 metres deep and is the biggest attraction in Watarrka National Park.

The canyon abounds with waterholes and casts a sheltering shadow over dense palm forests and native animals from the harsh desert surrounds lending to an interesting array of flora and fauna. The best way to explore Kings Canyon is to put on your walking shoes and explore the boulder strewn canyon floor or hike to the rim - a must for any Red Centre adventurer.

Meander along Kings Creek on the Creek Bed Walk and venture through the canyon gorge with the 100 metre cliff walls towering above you. The walk will lead you to views of the impressive canyon rim and take you past fossilized tracks of ancient marine creatures and ripple marks of the sea that once filled the gorge visible on the cliff faces.

Alternatively for those with a good level of fitness, the steep climb up and around the rim of the canyon’s sandstone walls offers marvellous views. This walk will also take you between the sandstone cliffs to the Garden of Eden, a tropical oasis with a natural spring waterhole surrounded by lush exotic plant life.

If hiking isn’t for you, take off on a helicopter flight and appreciate the grand scale of the canyon. Regardless of the experience you choose, it’ll definitely be worth every step and will leave you in awe of the scale and natural beauty of the region.
