Northern Territory - Kings Canyon

Set within Watarrka National Park, Kings Canyon features ancient sandstone walls, modeled by the elements and rising up 100m to a plateau of rocky domes. This scenic landscape of rugged ranges, rock-holes, and moist gorges act as a refuge for many plants and animals, thus making the Park a significant conservation area as well as a major attraction of central Australia. Watarrka National Park is also home to many waterholes and areas of lush vegetation, which contain more than 600 plant species, 100 bird species, and 60 species of reptiles.

The park is located about 330km southwest of Alice Springs and can be reached by 4WD vehicles. Major walkways include The Kings Creek Walk, which is a 1.3km walk leading to the Kings Creek lookout point and The Kings Canyon Walk, a 6km walk leading to the stunning views of the buttressed domes of the Lost City and the Garden of Eden. There is also The Kathleen Springs Walk, a 2.6km walk leading to a spring-fed waterhole and The Giles Track, which is a 22km overnight walk traversing the top of the range from Kathleen Springs to Kings Canyon.
