With the option to also complete the various walks in Kings Canyon area, both Kings Creek Station and Kings Canyon Resort provide a variety of accommodation for a stopover.


This was a bit of fun at dusk to walk around the outskirts of the resort and watch the setting sun as the dingoes came out for a night's hunting.
