Watarrka National Park near Kings Canyon protects one of Australia’s most stunning natural environments. The George Gill Range rises out of the desert like the walls of a once-strong fortress.

Time has carved great buttresses out of its swooping sandstone sides. The surfaces are punctured with rocky crags having battled the elements for more than 400 million years. Ancient marine fossils etched into the rock show the incredible environmental changes that have taken place over time.

You can also get a glimpse of the environment that once was when you enter the "Garden of Eden". This inexplicably lush garden of feathery ferns can be found deep in the gorge of the canyon.

Kings Canyon is truly an environmental wonderland, its history evident at every step. When visiting the Red Centre, with icons such as Uluru (Ayers Rock) and Kata Tjuta, we suggest you drive and experience the real outback of Australia.
