A full day in the West MacDonnell Ranges, was all we had time for on this trip (really needed two/three to cover all the walks, with an overnight at Glenn Helen), so headed out early and this was our first port of call. Great spectacle and yes we spotted the Black-footed Rock-wallabies and as the ranger was doing his rounds, he was happy to provide an overview of the area for us.
Kings Canyon Rim Walk (Watarrka National Park)

Medium
6.6km return
4 hrs
Very much the highlight so far on this outback road trip. Dedicated the day to this one and we needed it, with so many areas to explore and pictures to take. Stupendous, with the tranquillity of the Garden of Eden something to savour and just sit there and take it all in.
So much great information on the flora and fauna, as well as the amazing geological history. Even named the Grey Shrike-thrush we had come across at Kata Tjuta (The Olgas) and here, but didn't know what it was.
Southern Wall Walk (Watarrka National Park)

This is the coach trip visitor's walk, so can get very busy, but no less enjoyable than the full rim walk, with its views across the canyon to the north.
Kathleen Springs (Watarrka National Park)

Easy

Drove up from Uluru to Kings Canyon and this was the first walk logged over a busy two days of bushwalking. Enjoyed this walk very much, not only for the surroundings, but for the historic information boards and evidence of Aboriginal artefacts including the 'grinding bowls' found in the car park.
Kings Creek Walk (Watarrka National Park)

Easy
2km return

A look at the canyon from floor level, rather than on the rim, was different. Just a shame the viewing platform had been destroyed by flood and rock falls in 2016, but was due to be re-opened in July 2019.
Dingo Ridge (Watarrka National Park)

Easy
1.8km return
1 hr
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.
Valley Of the Winds (Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park)

Uluru yesterday, The Olgas today. The highlight, was Karingana lookout on the saddle, where it gives you the impression you are entering some hidden valley, surrounded by domed rocks; fantastic.
