Full description
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 view the canyon gorge at look-out points. Time permitting, you may choose to descend to the green oasis of the 'Garden of Eden'. The walk may take up to 3 hours and is rocky and steep places. 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. Return to Kings Canyon Resort.

The Kings Canyon Rim walk was made even more enjoyable because of our guide Doug. The pace was good and he was very knowledgeable about the flora and indigenous culture.

Amazing views, worth the climb.

Would have been nicer to have a guide that knew more about the local customs and indigenous culture. Guide knew the area and was very personable.
