See more of Watarrka National Park on a half-day tour that features a guided hike to the rim of Kings Canyon. Experience the dramatic landscape of Australia’s Red Centre up close including sandstone cliffs, hidden waterholes, and caves. Expect a challenging hike of several miles with uneven terrain and uphill sections, and sweeping views of Kings Canyon throughout the trek. The Creek Bed Walk offers an easier alternative if desired. Please note that for safety reasons, the rim walk is only offered seasonally in the cooler months.

My King’s Canyon experience was part of a 4-day tour with AAT Kings through Journey Beyond Rail Expeditions. Our driver Gaz gave great advice, and our guide for the Rim Walk was also really good. What none of us could understand, however, was, unlike the walk with the guide from

Hi kaz51, Thank you for leaving us a review! We are so glad that you enjoyed your tour with AAT Kings. We are extremely proud to have drivers and guides who have so much passion & knowledge for this area. In regards to your comments about the timing of the walk, this was altered due to operational reasons and rather than cancelling the walk, we joined our two Kings Canyon groups together. We do appreciate your feedback regarding the heat and will pass this on to relevant management. Thank you for travelling with us in the Red Centre, we hope to welcome you back on board an AAT Kings tour again soon!

Hi there, Thank you for your review. It is a little disappointing to hear that you hadn't been given all of this information at booking time, as all AAT Kings documentation does mention the length of this day, and both of the walks in detail. We are pleased to hear however that you enjoyed our friendly & knowledgeable staff. Thank you again for leaving AAT Kings a review, and we hope to see you on tours in the future!

We had an option to do the Rim Walk or Canyon Walk. We chose the Rim Walk and Allie was our guide. On the rim walk the first part is the hardest, as there area 500 steps to get past. The steps are stones in set concrete, which is very well done, but are at irregular heights

Recently visited this place on a AAT Kings tour. Our crew were wonderful. Melissa took us for a rim walk in the canyon. She gave us lots of information of the area, local indigenous information, fauna and flora. She kept us well informed throughout the walk. Highly recommended.
