Had one night here and thought it was a great place. Very friendly, excellent selection of freshly cooked food and good staff. Entertainment every in the bistro in the evenings. Great place to get away from it all with wonderful walks nearby especially the Canyon itself. Highly recommended!

Really the only place to stay when visiting Kings Canyon, but it is great. There is a gas station, store, 2 restaurants, and a bar. The Kings Canyon Rim hike was the best hike we took on our Red Centre vacation. A must do. Go early in the morning!

The rim canyon walk is one of the best walks that I have experienced. A great climb to the rim and then spectacular views of the canyon and rock formations. Accommodation at Kings Canyon Resort was great but even though it is in the outback, they could improve the internet facilities.

Expensive. Very basic accommodation. Looking tired and on the verge of being run down. For $379 for a night I think people are entitled to more. We arrived (4 adults two rooms) at 1130am to be told we could not check in because our rooms weren't prepared. The "Resort" was less than half full at best so I struggle to...

We stayed in a basic room at the resort. A bit more expensive than other places of similar standard but with no competition for 100's of kilometers I guess this is to be expected. The room was fairly modern, good size & clean so no complaints there. The staff are very helpful & can advise you how to make the...

Wonderful place to stay - so outback!! Upgraded to a deluxe room with spa which was worth it - only a little extra if you get breakfast included - had a dingo hanging out with us under a rock outside our balcony 😁 Met some great staff - Ron and Jeanette, lovely hospitality - thanks guys!! Well worth the stay!...

the campsite is very expensive $50 a night. fuel is $2.09 litre food also expensive. however it is a very special place, and the entertainer is great in the bar/restaurant. its a very good idea to have a helecopter fligh over the canyon. must be fit to walk around the top. a nice walk along the creek is easy.

If you are visiting Australia and in particular, the Aussie Northern Territories, even withoit a 4WD truck, this is a place to visit together with Ayers Rock and the Olgas in the Uluru area and Alice Springs with its Flying doctors and School in the air musea
