For the more adventurous, join your Guide for a hike to the top of Kings Canyon and 6 kms walk along the Rim – learn about the history and geology of the region as well as the flora and fauna found in the area.
The Rim Walk is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The climb up a 100-metre cliff face reveals views of sandstone walls, grottos, chasms and cliffs. Or, for something more relaxing, set off on a two-kilometre stroll along the creek bed that leads to impressive views of the canyon rim.
Visit the Garden of Eden – a permanent water source in the George Gill Range (swimming not permitted) and enjoy spectacular views across Watarrka National Park and into the Canyon itself.
Or take the leisurely Creek Bed Walk with your Driver Guide. Learn about the history and geology of the area, and the local flora and fauna including the MacDonnell Ranges Cycad.
If choosing the Creek Bed Walk there’s time for a scenic helicopter flight (own expense) or a cool off in the pool at Kings Canyon Resort
Time out for lunch at Kings Canyon Resort (own expense).
On the return journey, your Driver Guide will explain the history of the surrounding cattle stations and other points of interest.
