See the spectacular scenery of Kings Canyon and outback Australia with this amazing full day tour!
You'll depart early in the morning with a coach picking you up from Ayers Rock Resort, heading to Kings Canyon. On the way, you'll stop for a cooked breakfast at Kings Creek Station to get the energy boost that you need for exploring the canyon.
Arriving at Kings Canyon, located in the heart of Watarrka National Park, you have two walking options to choose from to explore this epic landmark and its panoramas. For the more adventurous, join your guide for a hike to the top of Kings Canyon and walk 6km along the Rim. The climb up a 100-metre cliff face reveals views of sandstone walls, grottos, chasms and cliffs. Along the way you will learn about the history and geology of the region as well as the flora and fauna found in the area. You'll also visit the Garden of Eden and enjoy spectacular views across Watarrka National Park and into the Canyon itself.
For people who'd prefer a more leisurely pace, you can take the Creek Bed Walk with your driver guide. You'll also learn about the history and geology of the area and the local flora and fauna including the MacDonnell Ranges Cycad. You'll even have time for a scenic helicopter flight (additional cost) or cool off in the pool at Kings Canyon Resort.
On the return journey back to Uluru or Alice Springs, your driver guide will explain the history of the surrounding cattle stations and other points of interest to you.
