Kings Canyon is part of Watarrka National Park, in the southwestern corner of the Northern Territory. The park is 450 kilometers (280 miles) from Alice Springs and the best way to get there is by car along the Stuart or Lasseter Highways or Luritja Road, all of which are sealed.
The Kings Canyon rim walk starts with a 500 stair climb that is quite narrow and steep. Allow at least four hours to tackle the challenging six-kilometer (3.7-mile) Kings Canyon Rim Walk, which offers spectacular views of the gorge and surrounding landscape below.
Make sure you have plenty of water on this trek as I have already mentioned it is very hot and very exposed. Certainly no less than 2 liters each and maybe to be on the safe side 3. Also, cover-up! Not just sunscreen but long-sleeved top with high neck and hat. Sunglasses and good walking shoes. Probably best to start this walk as early as possible to beat the heat. The views are breathtaking and once at the top of the ridge walk is relatively easy-going!
