ワタルカ国立公園 (キングスキャニオン)



公園は2万年以上の間ルリチャの人々の故郷であり、その動植物や岩の形成は徒歩で最もよく見られます。谷底に沿って1キロ離れた穏やかな日陰のキングスクリークウォークトレイルを試してみてください。早起きして日の出を見て、峡谷の縁の周りを6 km歩くと、砂漠の向こう側や下の緑豊かな谷の壮大な景色を眺めることができます。キャスリーンスプリングスまで2.6km歩くと、史跡や湧水水穴に行くことができます。健康で経験豊富なハイカーは、キングスキャニオンとキャスリーンスプリングスの間を22キロ歩くジャイルズトラックを気に入るはずです。キャンプ料金はジャイルズトラックに沿って適用され、キャンプ場は到着する前にオンラインで予約する必要があります。

Can Kings Canyon be done as a day trip?

While it’s possible to visit the region as a day trip from Yulara or Alice Springs, we recommend staying at least one night so that you can wake up early and complete the Kings Canyon rim walk for breathtaking views.


Do I need any passes or permits to visit Kings Canyon & Watarrka National Park?

Entry into Watarrka National Park is free and doesn’t require a permit.

If you’re travelling via the Mereenie loop (4WD only) you’ll be travelling on Aboriginal Land Trusts and will need to purchase a permit. Permits cost $5 and can be purchased at Kings Canyon Resort, Hermannsburg store, or the Visitor Centre in Alice Springs.


How do I get around Kings Canyon?

The two most popular walking trails are the Kings Creek walk, which takes you into the canyon, and the famous Kings Canyon rim walk. You can explore the trails yourself or via a guided tour. 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. It’s also hard to beat seeing the canyon from a helicopter, with regular flights available throughout the day.

Kings Canyon lies between Alice Springs and Yulara. It’s a 3 hour (306km) drive from Yulara.

How far is Kings Canyon from Alice Springs and Uluru?

Kings Canyon is 5 hours’ drive from Alice Springs (474km) along the sealed Lasseter and Stuart Highways.

Kings Canyon is 3 hours’ drive (306km) from Uluru.


What are the major attractions at Kings Canyon?

The most popular way to explore Kings Canyon is to hike the 6km Kings Canyon rim walk. There are a number of shorter walks such as the Kings Creek hike, a 2.6 km trail filled with stunning scenery. Be sure to watch the sunset or sunrise from a high vantage point.


What should I bring with me to Kings Canyon?

If you’re taking the Mereenie Loop, bring extra fuel, a satellite phone and plenty of water, andtell someone where you’re going. When hiking the Kings Canyon rim walk, bring drinking water, a hat, camera, sturdy walking shoes and sunscreen.


When is the best time to visit Kings Canyon?

Kings Canyon is impressive at any time of the year. The most popular time to visit is from May to October when the weather is cooler. The temperature increases from October to April, so if you want to complete the Kings Canyon rim walk, make sure you start the climb in the early hours of the morning. The track closes from 9am during the hotter months.


Where should I go next from Kings Canyon?

If visiting from Uluru, continue on towards Alice Springs. Visit the West MacDonnell Ranges via the Mereenie Loop (you’ll need a 4WD) and stop at Hermannsburg and Glen Helen.

If you’ve come from Alice, then a visit to Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park is an absolute must!
