Time to be a Territorian - at The Rock and The Canyon


Uluru region 1200x6287

Right here in the Red Centre, and two of Australia's iconic national parks; Uluru - Kata Tjuta National Park and Watarrka National Park. Both of these places make the ideal place to get out for a weekend!

Uluru, you may have been before, but why not go again and do something different this time. 

Jump on the back of a Camel and wander through the desert oaks while taking in the epic views of Uluru and Kata Tjuta, or spoil yourself and stay in the resort for the night! You've walked around the base of Uluru, but have you Segway'd around it? Theres a reason why they call Central Australia the adventure capital... you can skydive over Uluru!

Visit the art galleries in the Cultural Centre, and take a cultural walking tour with the artists. This is the perfect opportunity to meet and purchase works from artists, knowing that all funds are returned to the Anangu people.

There are no two views of Uluru that are the same and there are many ways to experience the majesty and the beauty of this unique desert landscape. Join a walking tour with one of the many operators to learn something you never knew before on this visit to Uluru.

 This scenic landscape of rugged ranges, ancient sandstone walls rising hundreds of metres to a plateau of rocky domes, rock holes and gorges in the Watarrka National Park is breathtaking.

Enjoy one of the many walks within the National Park, the six kilometre Kings Canyon Rim Walk takes approximately 3-4 hours but the view down the sandstone chasm plunging 270 metres to the canyon floor definitely makes it worthwhile. Done it before on your own? Why not go on a guided tour of the Rim Walk to learn something new. 

If walking isn’t your thing, appreciate the true beauty and grandeur of Kings Canyon from above on a scenic helicopter flight.

Kings Canyon Resort accommodation ranges from deluxe hotel rooms, glamping packages, to budget backpacker-style lodge rooms, as well as caravan and camping facilities. After a day of exploring you don’t want to miss Under the Moon, a dining experience set under the southern night sky accompanied by a menu focusing of the fresh and local produce of Australia.

36 kilometres from Kings Canyon, Kings Creek Station offers you the opportunity to discover a working cattle station by helicopter, camel or quad bike. Camping and accommodation facilities are available at Kings Creek Station.

Kings Canyon is approximately 300 kilometres north east of Uluru and 450 kilometres south west of Alice Springs. The Red Centre Way drive connects Alice Springs, Uluru and Kings Canyon. It can be explored on a self-drive itinerary or by an organized coach or private tour.
