This is a few hours from Uluru and many folks don't have the time, but it is well worth a visit if your schedule allows. It can be done in a day trip from Yulara, but we spent the night at the Kings Canyon Resort...More

I thought I had done my homework but completely underestimated the vast distance required to reach the National Park where the canyon is located. We thought we would drop in on our way back from Uluru but this is NOT a detour option. It is...More

Having been there two years ago, my opinion is that the Kings Canyon park area and canyon are beautiful, and adults will enjoy the views, but the kids and teenagers will probably be bored. Also, there is almost nothing to... More

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
