Watarrka National Park Activities
You won’t find anything like the Kings Canyon experience anywhere else on the planet.
You won't find anything like the Kings Canyon experience anywhere else on the planet. You are free to explore Watarrka National Park from your base at Kings Canyon Resort.
You’ll more than likely arrive in the early afternoon, so the first thing on the agenda could be to relax by the pool. Or if you are feeling more active you can experience just how vast the area is from above with a helicopter tour of the canyon itself. In the evening, you can relax with a drink before dinner at our restaurant, which features the best of local cuisine.
Sunrise is the time to do one of the two King Canyon walks. You’re free to enjoy a walk on your own or join a guided tour and learn about the evolution of this remarkable, ancient place. In the afternoon you can again choose between the action of a Quad Bike adventure or camel tour at Kings Creek Station or more serene activities like a self guided Bird Watching tour.
That night, the Under a Desert Moon dinner (seasonal) is the perfect way to cap off your visit. Imagine a table for two in a wilderness setting under a star-strewn canopy of the Southern Night sky. The only light comes from the moon and the flickering glow of the fire. The only sound is soft music intertwined with the whispering of the breeze through the Desert Oak trees and crackling flames.
Most of our guests tell us that they wish they had stayed longer. There’s so much to see and do that you really need a couple of nights to do it justice.
Whatever you do at Kings Canyon, you'll never forget it.
