Highlights
Choose your adventure with a customizable hiking experience in Kings Canyon
Stops for breakfast (included) and lunch (own expense,) so you don't have to carry food with you
Learn about the aboriginal history and geology of the site from your guide
Transportation options make for a relaxing experience
What to expect
Start out your adventurous day with convenient pickup at your Ayers Rock Resort accommodation, which means you don't have to worry about navigating or directions on the way into the Red Centre. Spend the ride relaxing and snapping photos of the rugged scenery before reaching Kings Canyon for your trek. Stop for breakfast at the cattle station, a family-run operation that offers camel rides (own expense), so you can see how the early Australian settlers experienced the Outback for the first time. Continue to Watarrka National Park, where your guide will fill you in on the history and geology of the sandstone gorge, as well as its sacred meaning to the Lilla and Ulpinyali people. Choose between two walk options in the canyon: the 3.5-mile (6-kilometer) strenuous Rim Walk or the more leisurely Creek Bed Walk, which runs 1 mile (2 kilometers) along the valley floor. Refuel with lunch (own expense) and a swim at Kings Canyon Resort before returning to Ayers Rock.

Wow! A challenging experience not to be missed
What an amazing walk. Spectacular scenery. Day went smoothly with an interesting range of stops. Our AAT Kings driver Jacob was a wealth of knowledge sharing stories about the Station families. A deep respect for the Indigenous groups of the area was shown. Loved the walk. A highlite of our stay. Would do it again in a heart beat.

The whole day was professionally run. Our driver Jacob and guide Jess were engaging and positive throughout the tour and extremely helpful. The hike is difficult in parts but Jess patiently supported everyone resulting in everyone achieving success. The hike is awe inspiring and well worth the investment of time, energy and money.

Beautiful canyon top and bottom
Apr. 2021
We elected to do the easier walk viewing the canyon from the bottom rather than the arduous rim walk. This was predominantly due to the heat that day which was 30 something degrees. The walk was relaxing with beautiful scenery. It is a spectacular place to visit. Our driver/guides Dylan and Jakob, were professional, knowledgeable and friendly. It was a pleasant drive to and from even though it was a very early start. Breakfast was well organised and ok. If you are a coffee person like me, the barista coffee that I had to pay extra for at Kings Street Station was pretty ordinary. It tasted like hot milk. Just stick with the instant that is included in the price of breakfast. The coffee at Kings Canyon Resort was much better.

I feel somewhat disappointed that I didn’t do the rim walk. I think it would be great to do in the cooler months.

Great day at Kings Canyon!!
Excellent crew and beautiful scenery on this day trip. Many interesting stops and great info from our driver Dylan. His love for the area shone through his commentary, with stories of locals who experienced many hardships. Dylan's insights and local knowledge were delivered in a very captivating way, connecting us with the history and locals in a way that made us feel proud to be Australian.

Kings Canyon Review - 6th March
Mar. 2021 • Couples
What an experience! I did the Kings Canyon Day trip yesterday with my partner, we both couldn’t recommend it enough! We had three guides during our trip Jakob, Jack and Dave. They all had so much knowledge of the surroundings, flora and fauna and provided such a wealth of history and stories during our three hour drive to the Kings Canyon. My first time coming to the NT and would love to come back! hopefully catch you boys around soon! (Enjoy your day off today, well deserved).

Definitely want to come back for this tour
Feb. 2020
We had three tour guides for this tour (can't remember the names I'm afraid) and all were fantastic. Very enthusiastic and had a lot of knowledge about the land, plants/animals and Aboriginal culture. Our breakfast was very homely but substantial and delicious. They had eggs, bacon, baked beans, toast and tea and coffee. I went on the creek bed walk as temperatures were expected to reach high 40s and I personally didn't feel I was fit enough for the rim walk. It was still fantastic and you were able to walk through the canyon and have great views of the canyon wall and the creek bed. I definitely want to come back during the dry season to complete the rim walk as I heard from fellow travelers that the views for that were gorgeous. The tour was largely set up well, with my only issue being the time difference between the creek bed and rim walk. For those who did the creek bed walk, we finished early and ended up waiting at the Kings Canyon resort for around an hour and a half until the rim walk people joined us. This would have been alright, however we had to wait around an hour for the restaurant at the resort to open and in the meantime, dealing with the heat and flies were exhausting. On the way back, the tour guides stopped at a viewing point for Mt Conner which was a very nice touch. I was going on a tour of Mt Conner the next day but the majority of people were not and so they appreciated that opportunity to stop and take a picture of this very unique mountain!

Absolute Must!!! Amazing Experience
Travelled from Ayers Rock Resort to Kings Canyon with driver Joey and guide Will. They were very helpful, knowledgeable and always smiling and happy no matter what time it was. It was a long day but an amazing day. Cannot thank Will and Joey enough for their amazing efforts. Would recommend these guys on your tour.

Worth a visit

The guides Will & John are super nice & professional. After a slightly strenuous climb you’ll get a breathtaking view of the canyon. It was a long drive (300km) though.
