Welcome to Kings Canyon

You’ll get a sense of the remoteness of outback Australia as you travel to Kings Creek Station. Watch as the local wildlife wakes for the day – dromedary camels, kangaroos and dingoes.

Kings Creek Station

This cattle and camel station covers 1,800 square kilometres. Relax in the café where you’ll be treated to a cooked breakfast. Their coffee is said to be the best in the Territory!

Included Meals: Breakfast

Kings Canyon

Located in the heart of Watarrka National Park, Kings Canyon lies in an ancient Australian landscape that is sacred ground for the Ulpanyali and Lilla people.

Canyon Rim or Creek Bed Walk

In Kings Canyon make the rocky climb with your guide to the rim of the canyon to be rewarded with marvellous views over Watarrka National Park. The climb may take up to three hours and is for those with a good level of fitness. Alternatively explore the boulder-strewn creek bed - an easier shady walk following the trail between the two sheer walls of the canyon.

  • Rim Walk & The Garden of Eden

    The six kilometre Rim Walk is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Climb up a 100 metre cliff face and walk around the rim of the canyon. Marvel at impressive views of sandstone walls, grottos, chasms and cliffs.

    Deep down between sandstone cliffs, is the Garden of Eden – a true oasis. Here is a natural spring waterhole surrounded by local and exotic plants and trees such as gums, bonsai looking trees and enormous prehistoric ferns, creating a truly unique landscape.

  • Creek Bed Walk

    The Creek Bed Walk is ideal if you’re interested in something more relaxing. After leisurely taking in the sights, set off on a two kilometre stroll along the creek bed, that leads to views of the impressive canyon rim.

You will need to bring your own water bottles, which altogether are able to hold a minimum capacity of 3 litres per person (these can be filled with water on board the coach). We highly recommended that you have sturdy walking shoes, comfortable protective clothing, a hat and sunscreen as well.

Kings Canyon Resort

Now we’re off to Kings Canyon Resort – an oasis in the outback! Treat yourself to lunch (own expense). To see Kings Canyon from above, take a scenic helicopter flight (creek bed walkers only & own expense), or bring your swimmers if you’d like to take a dip in the resort’s pool.

Scenic Return Journey

Enjoy amazing outback scenery as we head back to Ayers Rock Resort.
