Full description
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.

    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.

    For various reasons we only did the Creek's walk. It is very beautiful, but we have seen other much more impressive canyons. I don't know if it's worth the trip. Surely yes, the Rim's walk is done. As an alternative, they offered us a helicopter flight, which we decided to do and it was great!
