Destination view

Kings Canyon, NT

Located via 4WD access only from the Larapinta Drive, King's Canyon sits on the Western edge of the George Gill Range within Watarrka National Park. The sheer sandstone canyon walls light up at sunrise & sunset and bring together the unique flora & fauna of the Western Desert, Simpson Desert & MacDonnell Ranges. Wander through the palm trees on the easy Kings Creek Walk, or test yourself against the steep ascent on the challenging Canyon Walk. Hiding within the canyon are immensely beautiful waterholes, including one known as The Garden of Eden. Wander near the rocky buttresses known as the Lost City or take a guided tour to learn about the cultural significance of this stunning area. King's Canyon is a truly iconic & unmissable part of Australia's beating heart, The Red Centre.
