Did the Rim walk and it gave spectacular view of the surroundings, and a better in depth knowledge to the aboriginal history of the land. Thoroughly enjoyed this track.

The rim walk around Kings Canyon was excellent and all in all a much better experience than visiting nearby Uluru (less people, more scenic, more diverse, etc). We did the 6.5km walk with 3 kids (including 6yo twins) and was no problem although you need...More
