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

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

I came here as part of an organised tour run by AAT Kings. The walk around the rim started at sunrise and took about 3-4 hours. The initial climb is quite steep with lots of steps but it is well worth the effort for the...More

I walked this as part of a group. Many were uncertain of whether they would manage the steps up, but all did without difficulties. We arrived at first light and watched the sun rise as we reached the top. We walked slowly, saw a lot...More

A visit to the "Red Centre" of Australia will present you with many "Jaw Dropping" moments, and after Uluru...one of my favourites was Kings Canyon. The best way to enjoy what Nature has carved out of the Red Rocks is the "Rim Walk" around the...More

Did the creek walk one afternoon. It was well shaded and a comfortable stroll. The end of the path was closed due to a large boulder that fell on the platform. Sunset and sunrise was amazing from kings canyon resort. The Thirsty Dingo has $20...More

The canyon is not huge but it is a special place even though the main track in has been stopped short of the end because of storm damage. The walk around the top is a bit daunting for many but a helicopter ride is a...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’.

I agree with the previous reply - AAT Kings are the best. I'd wholeheartedly recommend a trip out to Kings Canyon with them. Its a long drive from Ayers Rock and walking the canyon can take over 3 hours with plenty of photo... More
