Kings Canyon e Watarrka National Park

Alice Springs Darwin Katherine Ulu r u Kings Canyon

Fai un giro nel Watarrka National Park, sede del Kings Canyon. Attraversa le scogliere di roccia rossa e osserva la foresta di palme sottostante.

A sole 3 ore da Uluru, Kings Canyon è una destinazione maestosa con muri di arenaria alti 100 metri, scorci di palme e viste che si estendono attraverso il deserto. Molto più di una semplice destinazione per una gita di un giorno, perché non esplorare sentieri, percorsi per quattro ruote motrici, e fare un tour in cammello, con sistemazioni che vanno dal campeggio alle camere in stile resort.

Allacciati le scarpe da trekking ed esplora il Rim Walk di 6km - un must per chi cerca una magnifica vista del bordo del canyon, le consumate cupole di "The Lost City" e il "Garden of Eden". Ci sono alternative per tutti i livelli di forma fisica.

Con alcune delle migliori viste del cielo notturno disponibili solo nell'Outback, goditi un'esperienza gastronomica unica offerta da Kings Canyon Resort - Under a Desert Moon. Goditi una cena di classe mondiale da quattro portate con vino, che si concentra sull'utilizzo di prodotti freschi di provenienza locale.

Ora hai esplorato Kings Canyon a piedi, l'opzione successiva è quella di osservarne la maestosità e la vera bellezza dall'alto! Kings Canyon Resort offre un tour in elicottero con trasferimenti da e per la stazione.

The rim walk requires a moderate level of fitness due to the sharp incline. The Kings Creek walk is suitable for all able travellers. Be sure to stick to the designated tracks, both for your safety and to protect the environment.
