The Kings read more » Canyon Resort is the perfect basis for exploring Australia’s “small Grand Canyon”, which is, however, no less spectacular with its 100 metres high soaring rock faces and a length of more than one kilometre.


Then again, numbers can not convey the beauty of the colourful rock shining in yellow, grey and red tones. Deep down in the canyon’s floor, soaring River Eucalyptus add a dash of vibrant green.


For a special perspective, take a scenic flight to admire the splendour of the region from lofty heights. Incidentally, the scenic flights may also be combined with a flight to Uluru, also known as Ayers Rock.


We recommend spending at least half a day in the Kings Canyon. The best time for wildlife observations are the early morning and late afternoon hours. One of the classic routes to take is the four hours hike from the Kings Canyon to the Garden of Eden.


Admire the bizarre rock formation, which have been named the Lost City, due to their striking resemblance of ancient homes in ruins. For stretches, the vegetation becomes surprisingly lush, a remnant from a more humid era.


Of course, the Aborigines knew all about the Kings Canyon long before the first explorers described the region. It is a special opportunity to go on a guided hike, led by a knowledgeable Aborigine, who will also introduce you to their complex culture.


Alternatively, explore the outback mounted securely on the back of a swaying camel. Originally not native to Australia, these magnificent creatures were introduced in the 19th century to provide inland transportation.
