Discovery Parks – Kings Canyon

Kings Canyon is a natural wonder located approximately half way between Alice Springs and Uluru – literally at the heart of Australia’s Red Centre.

The canyon has been forged over 400 million years and is made from layers of sandstone with hard shale between each layer. Soaring 270m above sea level, areas of the canyon plummet to the Garden of Eden where lush, plants thrive along the line of the permanent rock pools. It’s at these pools you’ll often see native animals coming to drink.

It’s a place of serenity and contemplation and is of great significance to the original land owners, who ask that you don’t swim in the waters. Other than this request, you’re welcome to climb, touch and explore the canyon in a manner respectful to its history and natural environment.

The park includes a backpackers’ lodge and campground offering accommodation for all travellers. The facilities of the park provide an oasis of convenience in the middle of this ancient, rugged landscape.
