Kings Canyon is the biggest attraction inside Watarrka National Park which protects the rugged and scenic George Gill Range, a massive gorge, with red sandstone walls that rise over 100 metres to a plateau of rocky domes and other sandstone formations.

There are many tours with expert guides that can be arranged allowing you to experience this truly stunning and historic area both safely and to the full, including 4×4 treks and walks along the canyon floor and around the rim (the rim walks are the highlight of the trip being one the best and most varied walks you can do in central Australia).

Accommodation and a caravan park/camping is available at Kings Canyon Resort (only a few km from the canyon itself) or at Kings Creek Station (on the national park border, about 40 km from the canyon itself).
