Kings Canyon Resort

440 million years in the creating, Kings Canyon rises 270 metres above sea level and is at the heart of Australia's Red Centre. It is here that an unforgettable outback adventure will unfold in an extraordinary place of ancient beauty. The Canyon has been forged through layers of sandstone and hard shale creating soaring domes and plateaus that plummet to an oasis of natural rock pools and native flora and fauna. 

This is a place where you can truly explore with all of your senses and immerse yourself in the untamed never never with the blessing of the original land owners.

Road Closure Advisory

The Mereenie Loop (Larapinta Drive) has been officially closed to all traffic from 1st March 2020 between Areyonga and Kings Canyon.

There is flooding over the road approx. 50kms from Kings Canyon Resort, near the Mereenie Gas Field Camp which is believed to be coming from underground springs. The water is not subsiding and several large vehicles are currently bogged within the water. There are no alternative tracks to get around the water.

No Mereenie Loop Permits are being issued from either end (Kings Canyon or Alice Springs / Glen Helen).

It is unknown when the road conditions will change.
Updates are available from NT Roads Website:

We do not expect this road to be reopened for some weeks.

Access to Kings Canyon Resort is open via the Sealed roads - Stuart Highway, Lasseter Highway and Luritja Roads and also the Ernest Giles Road, which is 100kms of unsealed road linking Luritja Road and Stuart Highway.
