KINGS CANYON

PHOTOGRAPHY & WORDS BY PORTIA LARGE 

Fuel up at buffet breaky, the 3.5-hour rim walk will test you with a 500 step vertical warm up! Increase difficulty by carrying a drone box, camera equipment, bulk water and food. Fear not, the view gets better at every bend and you’ll probably welcome the exercise if you’re road tripping. Along the way we stumbled upon the “Garden of Eden” (pictured below). This shady oasis is safe for swimming and a great picnic spot.

Another world awaits you at the top… Kings Canyon, Australia’s Grand Canyon. Standing on the edge overlooking the canyon, I realised discomfort awakens consciousness. Without the hard times, we become complacent and take our blessings for granted. Life is a gift and I’m determined to travel as far as my legs will carry me, for as long as I am able. Investment: Adults $69.00 pp | Children $35.00 pp

OVERNIGHT AT KINGS CANYON RESORT

@kingscanyonresort was easily my favourite accommodation in the Northern Territory! Here you’ll get mooned between 7 and 9pm… On this occasion I bailed on our Outback BBQ Grill – the bath was just too good! If you can manage to leave the tub view, fluffy slippers and robe, I heard this place has a great vibe. You can book the Deluxe Spa Room from $380.00 p.n which includes buffet breaky for two!
