Depart Ayers Rock Resort and travel through the sand hill country to Kings Canyon, stopping for breakfast at Kings Creek Station (own expense) along the way.

Make the rocky climb to the rim of the Canyon to be rewarded with marvelous views. The 6km Rim Walk may take up to 3 hours and is for the energetic. Alternatively, you may wish to explore the boulder-strewn Canyon floor on the easier 2.6km Kings Creek Walk.

The Rim Walk begins with a challenging 500-step climb. Upon reaching the summit marvel at the breathtaking views of Watarrka National Park and into the canyon itself before descending into the green oasis of the 'Garden of Eden'. The Rim Walk is a strenuous and exposed walk, only suitable for those of above average fitness. This means; people who are in good health, lead an active life, play sport or walk on a regular basis.

The Kings Creek Walk meanders up the centre of the canyon to a lookout point on the left hand side of the valley, which affords a view of the sheer cliff face at the end of the canyon. This walk is suitable for all ages and requires only a moderate level of fitness.

After lunch (own expense) we make our way back to Ayers Rock Resort.
