Information

Kathleen Springs is located 21km by road from Kings Canyon and lies within the Watarrka National Park.

Here the relicts of old stockyards can be seen along the pleasant easy short walk (2.6km return) to the permanent waterhole. This walk is recommended for families and visitors with limited mobility. This is a cool moist place to sit and enjoy the areas tranquillity. Signs along the track tell the story of centuries of Aboriginal culture and the recent cattle industry.

If you are feeling more adventurous you can try the Giles Track. It is a 22 km overnight walk traversing the top of the range from Kathleen Springs to Kings Canyon.

The waterhole holds special significance for the local Aboriginal people and is important for wildlife, so swimming is not permitted.
