About Kings Canyon

Kings Canyon is a natural wonder located approximately half way between Alice Springs and Uluru - literally at the heart of Australia's Red Centre.

The canyon has been forged over 400 million years and is made from layers of sandstone with hard shale between layers. Soaring 270 metres above sea level, areas of the canyon plummet to the Garden of Eden where lush, plants thrive along the line of the permanent rock pools. It is at these pools you will often see native animals coming to drink. It is a place of serenity and contemplation and one of great significance to the original land owners - who ask that you do not swim in the waters. Other than this request - you are welcome to climb, touch and explore the canyon in a manner respectful to its history and natural environment.

The Resort, Backpackers Lodge and Camp Ground - offer accommodation for all travellers and the facilities of the resort provide an oasis of convenience in the middle of an ancient, rugged landscape.
