Easy access that does not require a 4WD vehicle and many tour services available for this attraction too. Well sign posted walks with the added security of radio stations for emergencies on the full canyon rim walk.

We were on a group tour and were offered a choice of the rim walk (about 6km) or the creek walk (about 1km). Only 3 of us opted to do the rim walk - many were daunted by the thought of around 400 steps up...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’.
