Location attractions

Kings Canyon is a natural wonder located approximately halfway between Alice Springs and Uluru - literally at the heart of Australia's Red Centre.

Forged over 440 million years from layers of sandstone, shale and rock, the canyon soars 270 metres above sea level, then plummets to the Garden of Eden below where ancient flora and fauna thrive along a permanent line of rock pools.

A literal oasis in the desert, Discovery Resorts - Kings Canyon is the closest accommodation to Watarrka National Park, where the mighty Kings Canyon is located. Offering a resort-style holiday for intrepid travellers, modern rooms with ensuite bathrooms, air conditioning and private balconies enable guests to enjoy the view in a luxurious setting.

For a camping and caravanning experience you won’t forget, Discovery Parks – Kings Canyon boasts one of the most picturesque campgrounds in Australia. Here you can really get amongst the ancient landscapes in your own caravan or tent and utilise what we believe are the best camping facilities in the Red Centre.

Enjoy uninterrupted views to Kings Canyon and relax in the knowledge that you are never far from a hearty meal from one of our dining outlets, plus all the facilities which make this an oasis of convenience in the middle of an ancient, rugged landscape.

Unique experiences for adults and children are available, with guided hikes and self-guided tours to learn about the local landscape and immerse yourself in the Indigenous culture that has been present here for tens of thousands of years.
