An early morning walk around Uluru
Fuel up on breakfast early, before setting off to join the free guided walk from the Mala carpark. A Ranger will guide you along a shaded track at Uluru, stopping to discuss Tjukurpa (Aboriginal law) stories associated with Mala ancestors, rock art, traditional Anangu lifestyle, history and the environment.
Settle in for an outback drive
A big part of the outback experience is getting behind the wheel (or, if you’re lucky, being a passenger) and hitting the road. Stock up on supplies for the trip ahead. Your destination today is Kings Canyon, which is about four hours’ drive away.
Spot wildlife in Watarrka National Park
The infamous Kings Canyon is in Watarrka National Park, an expansive place where the scenic landscape of rugged ranges, rockholes and gorges acts as a refuge for many plants and animals who would otherwise struggle in the harsh central Australian environment.
Unwind at Kings Canyon Resort
Kings Canyon Resort is an oasis in the heart of Australia, only a short distance from the beautiful Kings Canyon and Lost City rock formations. Nestled in the tranquillity of a rugged bush setting, air-conditioned deluxe spa and standard rooms provide welcome comfort after a day of adventure and exploration.
Catch a spectacular sunset
Time your stroll to the Sunset Viewing Platform at Kings Canyon Resort to watch the landscape come alive with colour as the sun dips behind Carmichael's Crag and the George Gill Range. Watch the colours of the sandstone and sky change before the stars come out. Bring your camera and a chair, grab a drink from the pop-up bar and marvel at the magical environment.
Have dinner under a desert moon
Treat yourself to Under a Desert Moon, an exclusive dining experience at Kings Canyon Resort. With the only light coming from the moon and the flickering glow of the fire, and the only sounds being the whisper of the breeze and the crackling flames, you will feel as though you are at one of the most remote places on earth – all while enjoying a superb six course menu along with some of Australia's finest wines.
