About Kings Canyon Day Tours

Kings Canyon

Kings Canyon

Just under 3 hours’ drive from Uluṟu (Ayers Rock) is the lesser known but equally remarkable Kings Canyon. This majestic chasm was formed over millions of years of erosion, slicing the earth 270 metres deep and is the biggest attraction in Watarrka National Park.

The canyon abounds with waterholes and casts a sheltering shadow over dense palm forests and native animals from the harsh desert surrounds lending to an interesting array of flora and fauna. The best way to explore Kings Canyon is to put on your walking shoes and explore the boulder strewn canyon floor or hike to the rim - a must for any Red Centre adventurer.

Meander along Kings Creek on the Creek Bed Walk and venture through the canyon gorge with the 100 metre cliff walls towering above you. The walk will lead you to views of the impressive canyon rim and take you past fossilized tracks of ancient marine creatures and ripple marks of the sea that once filled the gorge visible on the cliff faces.

Alternatively for those with a good level of fitness, the steep climb up and around the rim of the canyon’s sandstone walls offers marvellous views. This walk will also take you between the sandstone cliffs to the Garden of Eden, a tropical oasis with a natural spring waterhole surrounded by lush exotic plant life.

If hiking isn’t for you, take off on a helicopter flight and appreciate the grand scale of the canyon. Regardless of the experience you choose, it’ll definitely be worth every step and will leave you in awe of the scale and natural beauty of the region.

Alice Springs

Alice Springs

Located just 200 kilometres from the geographical centre of Australia is the outback town of Alice Springs, affectionately known as ‘Alice’.

There’s plenty to see and do in and around this isolated town; visit the home of unique outback community services the Royal Flying Doctor Service and School of the Air, wander through the town centre where you’ll find local Aboriginal art on display and meet friendly locals who’ll share their amazing stories about life in the outback.

The historic Telegraph Station is a must-see on a visit to Alice Springs. Built in 1872 as part of the Overland Telegraph line linking Adelaide to Darwin and Australia to the world, it’s a window into Australia’s pioneering past.

Alice Springs is bordered by the rugged MacDonnell Ranges and has a range of incredible Red Centre experiences right on its doorstep. Follow the Red Centre Way from Alice Springs to the remote Aboriginal community of Hermannsburg and you’ll witness the landscapes that inspired renowned Australian artist Albert Namatjira, who was born in this former German missionary town.

Travel further west through the breathtaking desert terrain of the West MacDonnell Ranges and you’ll discover unique natural wonders like Standley Chasm and Palm Valley, an oasis of palm trees in the rugged surroundings of Finke Gorge National Park.

Alice is also a gateway to some of Australia’s most iconic destinations including Uluru (Ayers Rock), Kata Tjuta (the Olgas) and Kings Canyon and is part of the famous rail journey on The Ghan from Adelaide to Darwin.

If you’re in for a hike this is the best way to go to Kings Canyon. AAT kings will bring you to the place a 3 hours drive to kings canyon. Breakfast will be included on the way. The guide will lead the way up the canyon and also have the history knowledge of the place. This is an awesome place to hike and have a good view of the country.

Absolutely amazing tour! The bus trip was comfortable and I suggest maybe taking a pillow to cuddle up to so you can have a sleep on the way there as the tour starts super early. I done the rim walk and it was incredible! So many beautiful colours and shapes in the rocks. There is plenty of rest stops and look outs so you don’t need to be super fit for the walk, just take plenty of water! The breakfast before the walk was yummy, bacon, eggs, toast, beans etc. I highly recommend this tour and the guides were great! So informative and easy to get along with. They cater for everyone, young and old:)
