Kings Canyon Resort
440 million years in the creating, Kings Canyon rises 270 metres above sea level and is at the heart of Australia's Red Centre. It is here that an unforgettable outback adventure will unfold in an extraordinary place of ancient beauty.
At sunrise, make the steep rocky climb to the rim of the Kings Canyon for spectacular views of Watarrka National Park. Follow the rim of the canyon, stopping to look down into the gorge from a series of lookout points along the way. The rim walk takes approximately 3 hours to complete and is rocky and steep in parts. If you wish to take an easier, shorter walk instead, you can explore the boulder-strewn canyon creek bed, getting up-close to the native plants and birdlife that call this part of the world home. Your Short Break concludes in Alice Springs.
As this Short Break concludes after 7.00pm, accommodation will need to be pre-booked for tonight.
