Overnight: Ayers Rock Resort

 

Day 3: Kings Canyon - Alice Springs

An early start from Ayers Rock Resort should reward us with a magnificent desert sunrise en route to Kings Canyon. After stopping at Kings Creek Station for breakfast, make the rocky climb to the rim of the canyon (for those with a good level of fitness) for marvellous views of Watarrka National Park. Alternatively, you may wish to explore the boulder-strewn Canyon floor (an easier, shady walk). Stop at Kings Canyon Resort to purchase lunch (own expense) before travelling to Alice Springs.

 

Note: During the hotter months of the year where temperatures can reach and exceed 36° C or 97° F, the Watarrka National Park Rangers strongly advise that visitors do not take part in the Kings Canyon Rim Climb.  In this drier desert climate, heat exhaustion, over these hotter months, is a very high possibility and a danger in such remote regions.  To ensure the safety and enjoyment of our clients we offer a guided walk along the Kings Canyon creek-bed as a suitable alternative on such days.
