Kings Canyon Resort is a hidden gem surrounded by the extraordinary beauty of Australia’s outback. Located about half way between Alice Springs and Uluru, the holiday park is at the heart of Australia’s Red Centre, making it the perfect launch pad for adventure. Accommodation, fit for a king.
Far from the crowds and off the beaten red-dirt track, the famous Kings Canyon is a trove of natural Australian treasures waiting to be explored. Start your spellbinding journey with the renowned Rim Walk, where you will come across the sandstone domes of the ‘Lost City’ and discover sacred oasis, the ‘Garden of Eden’. Immerse yourself in the ancient culture of the local indigenous community on the Karrke Aboriginal Experience, and learn about traditional weapons and musical instruments, bush tucker and bush medicine, and local languages. Or, for a bird’s-eye-view of the majesty, a helicopter ride is the ideal way to take in the immense geological diversity of the canyon.
After a day of adventure, head to the nearby Sunset Viewing Platform and enjoy a well-deserved aperitif as the sun dips dramatically behind Carmichael’s Crag and the George Gill Range. It is a spectacular show as the sandstone and sky shift through a kaleidoscope of reds, oranges and pinks before the stars come out. It is a genuine must-do experience! Wrap up your magical day with the resort’s Under A Desert Moon dining experience. You will be treated to a delicious five-course menu featuring locally sourced tucker such as seared kangaroo loin and wild rosella flowers. Or relax in the Outback BBQ and Grill where you can enjoy a classic Australian pub meal while you listen to live music.
With the Resort, Backpackers Lodge and Camp Ground, there is accommodation to suit all travellers, while the resort facilities provide a convenient and peaceful retreat amid the iconic ancient landscape.
