Information

Watarrka National Park includes the western end of the George Gill Range.

This scenic landscape of rugged ranges, rockholes and gorges acts as a refuge for many plants and animals.

Kings Canyon is a highlight for visitors to Central Australia. See listing for more information.

The ancient red canyon walls soar 100m above Kings Creek to a plateau of rocky domes.

The sheltered creek environments below protect an abundance of flora including the MacDonnell Ranges Cycad.

Kathleen Springs is located 21km by road from Kings Canyon. See listing for more information.

Here the relicts of old stockyards can be seen along the pleasant walk to the permanent waterhole. The full length of the path is paved, and accessible by wheelchair and pram.

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