Kings Canyon Tours from Alice Springs
By Viator, August 2010
The remote canyon is in the Northern Territory, 323km (200 miles) southwest of Alice Springs. The best way to take in its remote grandeur is on a multi-day tour from the Alice. Accommodation in this far-flung location is offered by the Kings Canyon Resort, Kings Creek Station and the Yulara Resort at Uluru, or you can choose to sleep under the desert stars on a camping safari.
Give yourself three days to explore the outback on a camping safari and you can include a must-do visit to Uluru (Ayers Rock). No visit to Uluru is complete without a guided walk around the base of the rock, and seeing the spectacular sunset and sunrise over Uluru.
There’s time for these essential experiences and more on a three-day camping tour, including evenings spent around the campfire under the stars at Uluru and a traditional ‘camp oven’ dinner on a traditional outback cattle station at Kings Creek.
After sleeping under the stars at Uluru, see the sun rise over the Kata-Tjuta (the Olgas) domes. Then at Kings Canyon, take a leisurely hike around the gorge rim for views of the iconic landscapes of the Lost City and Garden of Eden.
For more traditional accommodation, choose the three-day tour and stay at the luxury Sails in the Desert at Uluru and enjoy a spa room at the Kings Canyon Resort. This tour also includes sunset drinks at Uluru, a guided sunrise walk around the rock, a guided hike around the rim of Kings Canyon and a drive through the Kings Creek Cattle Station.
