Things to do in Kings Canyon Holiday Park

Experience one of the most spectacular sights of the Red Centre - the sheer walls of Kings Canyon in Watarrka National Park. Climb the Rim Walk and view the sunset, complete the loop and enter the lush surrounds of the Garden of Eden canyon. Stay amongst this ancient landscape.

  • The rim walk around Kings Canyon was beautiful. And we can also recommend the food in the two restaurants: nice bbq and pizza.

  • Biggest tip is to bring any food you may need from your previous location as the prices here are crazy high!! ($10 block of chocolate, $5 cup noodles).

  • Do the rim walk - it's amazing - don't be put off by the steep climb to begin with. Those doing guided walks were getting lots of great info about the sights on the walk - there are some information boards on the walk but try to find a more detailed info sheet / book if you like that detail. If you are self catering - bring all you own food and utensils. If you have young children - go for an en suite room so you minimise trips in the dark to showers etc and stick to the paths!

  • Be sure to do the Canyon Rim Walk first thing in the morning before they close the track at 11am. We started the walk at 6am and took our time stopping all along the way and were done by around 10am.
