We were on the stairs by about 6.15am and they were brutal. Younger, fitter people were finding it much easier than I did, but there are plenty of places to stop on the way up to check out the view before reaching the top, about...More

My family and I did the Kings Canyon Rim walk and we loved it. Due to the heat we started at 5:30 in the morning , and the sunrise was incredible. Our favorite hike in Australia so far! Do not miss.

This place has to be one of my most favourite walks here in the outback. It is so stunning and makes you feel so small that it gives you a reality check. I recommend starting early, we started at 6am and stopping along the way...More

Arrived by AAT Kings coach for a guided walk of the Canyon. Hayley was our guide and what a knowledgeable and enthusiastic young lady she is. The walk was very manageable despite initial apprehension about the climb up. However it was fine and the entire...More

Caught the wet season, and wet it was. The walk was partially flooded and the guide, Hayley(?) was practical and safe throughout. In a small group of three, we decided to press on as long as it was manageable, and only the persistence of the...More

Wow! The Rim Walk was probably the best walk in the central Australia area. We started at 6am, which was great because we avoided the heat, but all the tourist buses turned up at the time. So we spent the whole time trying to stay...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’.
