The scenic rim walk was truly spectacular, brilliant colours, breathtaking scenery, against a blue blue sky. Has to be seen to be believed. While the initial climb to the top of the Canyon is a bit challenging, it is the hardest of the course. So...More

We took our time and easily made it within the 4-hour estimate. The path is steep in places, but the trail is exquisitely maintained. We couldn't stop taking pictures. The interpretive plaques were excellent and we don't regret scrimping by skipping the guided tour. But...More

The rim walk is fantastic. You must get here early in the morning as anything past 0900 will be stinking hot. We started at 0730 and took just on 2 hours 7 minutes to finish. However, you can expect to take 3-4 hours if you...More

It’s a long journey and detour, but my kids preferred this to Uluru (11 and 8yrs). They still talk about the exploring here. Less touristy and more ‘do your own thing’.
