Kings Canyon

We drove the 350 kms from Uluru to Kings Canyon today. Great bush scenery but an endless road. Today it was Brumbies (wild horses) that we saw the most of. A reminder today of the long distance between petrol stations when we pulled into a pretty remote rest area to be met by 3 very young and quite distressed Japanese girls in a hire car who were out of petrol. The next fuel stop was 75kms on. As we always carry extra fuel we were able to help them. They were so, so greatful.

The only place to stay is the Kings Canyon Resort. There is a sunset viewing platform, excellent swimming pool, bar and grill etc. Being the only place to stay it comes with a price. 50 dollars per night is the most we have ever paid.The area also comes with a good selection of dingoes and wild dogs so everything has to be put away at night.

We drove down to the canyon the following morning. They close the gates at 9am if the temperature is going to be over 37 degrees which was the case today. The walk is quite stunning and not too strenuous. Later we started the long drive back south heading for cooler weather.
