Half Day Tour | Kings Canyon Return

Kings Canyon Scenic Climb

Half Day Tour | Kings Canyon | Travel Period: 1 Apr 2020 – 31 Mar 2021

If you are based at Kings Canyon Resort, join your guide on the rocky climb to the rim of Kings Canyon for superb views of Watarrka National Park. The climb takes up to three hours, and requires a good level of fitness. If you’d prefer a more relaxed walk, take the easier option along the canyon creek bed.

  • Comprehensive commentary
  • Travel in an air-conditioned coach
  • Experienced Driver Guide

Kings Canyon - Your guide will escort you on the rocky climb to the rim of Kings Canyon. The views of Watarrka National Park from the top of the canyon are magnificent as are the views down into the canyon itself. Follow the rim of the canyon stopping to look down into the canyon gorge at look-out points. Time permitting, you may choose to descend into the green oasis of the 'Garden of Eden'.

Circuit walk - The circuit walk takes approximately 3 hours to complete and is rocky and steep in parts. It is for those with a good level of fitness. Alternatively, you may wish to take an easier, shorter walk to explore the boulder strewn canyon floor with our Driver/Guide.



Note: During the hotter months of the year where temperatures can reach and exceed 36° C or 97° F, the Watarrka National Park Rangers strongly advise that visitors do not take part in the Kings Canyon Rim Climb.  In this drier desert climate heat exhaustion, over these hotter months, is a very high possibility and a danger in such remote regions.  To ensure the safety and enjoyment of our clients we offer a guided walk along the Kings Canyon creek-bed as an alternative.

Prices above may vary according to your departure date.

  • Water bottle to hold 3 litres for the Rim Walk or 1.5 litres for the Creek Bed Walk
