The place to come for the Australian outback experience – jaw-dropping geological formations (including world-famous Uluru), sleeping out in swag bags, sampling bush tucker, and connecting with authentic Aborginal culture.

Official star rating:
While it’s not uncommon to visit Kings Canyon on a day trip from Yulara (Uluru), there’s a special delight in overnighting here.
Located about 3 hours’ drive from Yulara this property also provides unrivalled access to the Watarrka National Park – activities include escorted walks, indigenous experiences and helicopter tours.
Accommodation options range from up-scale glamping tents to motel-style rooms and sites for both tents and campervans, so this property will appeal to couples, families with young children and also solo travellers.
It’s the perfect base for exploring Kings Canyon and this ancient desert landscape.
The lodge sits alone in the Outback landscape, just 15 minutes’ drive from Kings Canyon and the hiking trails and swimming holes of the Watarrka National Park.
It’s a surreal and beautiful wilderness, rich in eroded mountains, high escarpments and red desert.
The silence is blissful and the stars unlimited – it’s about as isolated as you can get in Central Australia.
