Kings Canyon Walk, Red Centre

Known for its soaring sandstone cliffs, Kings Canyon Walk offers a variety of walking trails, the most popular of which traces the rim of the canyon passing a maze of windswept sandstone domes. The one-hour walk that follows Kings Creek at the bottom gives you the opportunity to view the towering--over 100 m (328 ft) high--canyon walls from below. Take a guided tour to learn more about the area's wildlife and the Luritja Aboriginal people, who have resided here for more than 20,000 years. Note that when the weather gets too hot, some of the trails can be fully or partially closed off.

  • If your visiting Uluru then you must do this walk. A 4 hr drive from Uluru so stay over night and do short walk on arrival and the rim walk the next day. It’s exposed so make sure you have sun screen ...  more »

  • Be sure not to just take water but use powdered Electrolytes in your water for this trek. The 500' climb initially is pretty challenging, the walk itself is less but it continues to be very strenuous till the end. You will need electrolytes without a doubt. Be sure and start your trek quite early in the morning. Also don't miss the beautiful garden in the center of the rim walk. It's about at the half way mark.
  • Be prepared for this beautiful hiking track in the outback especially on a hot day. Have plenty of water with you, it is a moderate difficulty walking track, mostly there are no safety rails so keep to the designated tracks.. There is a water hole not to be missed...
