Scenic View from Kings Canyon Resort

It's a very short walk from the room to the look out, spectacular view especially the sunset which varies everyday, the resort will notify you the time for sunrise and sunset each day. The room itself is quite small , below average in term of size. It took awhile for hotwater to come on.You need to insery your room key to turn on electricity.
Highly recommended to go to the morning tour to the Kings Canyon, the view is spectacular. This is the best place to stay if you want to go to the morning walk tour , it will take you around 3 hrs to complete the 6 kms walk. This is the Australian Grand Canyon!
