Located in the Northern Territory, Kings Canyon is accessible via a loop off the main highway running between Uluru and Alice Springs – and is now easier to get to than ever with return coach transfers from Uluru to Kings Canyon.
The team from Kings Canyon will arrange to pick you up from your accommodation at Ayers Rock Resort in the morning and set off on the three-and-a-half hour coach trip across central Australia.
Take in the unique desert landscape of soaring sandstone ranges millions of years old, vast plains and maybe even a herd of wild camels, before stopping to visit the Karrke indigenous community in Watarrka National Park.
Immerse yourself in a one-hour Aboriginal cultural tour where you’ll experience spear and boomerang displays, and learn about bush medicine and bush tucker.
From there, it’s a short drive to Kings Canyon Resort, where you’ll enjoy lunch and check in to one of the resort’s Standard Rooms or Deluxe Spa Rooms, complete with a spacious spa bath and private balcony, overlooking a beautiful rock escarpment.
In the afternoon, a guide will take you on the Kings Canyon Rim Walk – located just nine kilometres from the resort.
Beginning with a challenging climb, this walk is not for the faint-hearted, but is an absolute must-do in the Red Centre.
Upon reaching the summit, marvel at the breathtaking views into the canyon before descending into the green oasis known as the ‘Garden of Eden’.
If you’d prefer something a little easier, the creek bed walk follows a shaded trail between the two sheer canyon walls.
Stay the night at Kings Canyon Resort, enjoying live entertainment at the Outback BBQ.
Or for those who wish to indulge, opt for a degustation dinner beneath the starry night sky, the only light coming from the moon and flickering glow of the fire.
The resort’s ‘Under a Desert Moon’ dinner is a one-of-a-kind experience, unlike any other, and bookings are essential.
The next morning, hop onboard the coach and head back to Uluru, in time for any connecting flights.

- Coach transfer from Uluru to Kings Canyon Resort
