Departing Ayers Rock Resort, this 1 day tour takes you on a drive through sand hills on your way to Kings Canyon. Stopping at Kings Creek Station for breakfast along the way, the tour continues to the Watarraka National Park giving you the unique opportunity to enjoy a guided climb of the canyon rim. Although the 6 kilometre walk can be challenging with some rather steep areas, the views at the top are well worth the effort.
