Kings Canyon: Full-Day Tour from Ayers Rock Resort

1. Kings Canyon: Full-Day Tour from Ayers Rock Resort

Travel from Ayers Rock Resort to the beautiful Kings Canyon in Watarrka National Park, stopping for breakfast at Kings Creek Station along the way. Once at Kings Canyon, you'll make the rock climb to its rim for some marvelous views of Watarrka National Park and the spectacular surroundings. Follow the rim of the canyon along the 3-hour circuit walk, stopping to look down into the canyon gorge at various look-out points along the way. Time permitting, you may choose to descend into the green oasis of the 'Garden of Eden.' While the tour is recommended for those with a good level of fitness, you may opt for the easier, shorter walk to explore the boulder-strewn canyon floor. Then, you can grab lunch at your own expense. Finally, begin your return journey to Ayers Rock Resort.

What people are saying about Kings Canyon, Australia

My AAT Kings' guides were in their 20s/30s which I liked, friendly, knowledgeable and extremely professional, ie, we had a guide at the front and at the back of the rim walk; five guides in total for our whole bus. Even though it was a large bus not a minibus, half the group did the easy base walk and half did the more challenging rim walk so it felt like a manageable group. The rim walk started with a steep climb up 500 steps. This is fine for fit people and it gets easier at the top. It was boiling and there's no shade. You must have three litres of water to do it so take refillable bottles to avoid buying plastic ones. The walk is stunning, a highlight of my month-long trip in Australia, if not the best thing I did. It is featured in the film Priscilla Queen of the Desert, and they do it in stilettos!* *Wear hiking boots After the walk we swam in an outdoor pool at a camp-like resort. Take a packed lunch if you want more time in the pool. There's changing rooms and a shower.

Our tour guides were very well informed. I was very impressed by the safety and efficiency of our driver, Jacob. We saw more fauna than usual- camels, brumbies, a calf, bustards (large birds) on the road - all of which Jacob slowed well down for. We had a hearty breakfast at Kings Canyon Station, with a shop available for any extras we wanted. Kings Canyon was amazing- I am in my late fifties, moderately fit, and found the steps at the beginning challenging, but felt comfortable supported by the guides to go at my own pace. From then on, the walk was not as demanding. The views, however, were exceptional! Such a stunning canyon. Our walk lasted close to 4 hours (and being up over 40C), then we were picked up for lunch, and we had a swim at the pool. A must see! So glad we did this walk. Maybe I would advise it is less strenuous during winter!

This was a great trip. Well planned and the two tour operators were great. It was a full day, early start but was well worth it. If you can do the rim walk of the canyon, the views are spectacular. It's the first 500 steps that's the difficult part after that it's uneven but much easier to walk on. The garden of Eden was breathtaking. Good value trip and two great tour operators who both had a vast knowledge of the area.

It is a gorgeous trip. The tour starts very early in the morning but it is definitely worth it. The guides were great and very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend the rim walk. It's only exhausting at the beginning but the view from above is incredible.

It was really cool! The guides were nice and knowledgeable! The tour was amaizing!
