Cassia Hill (West MacDonnell National Park)
8 Jun, 2019
Easy
1.8km return
45 mins
Great little walk up and around Cassia Hill, although very barren due to back burning or a recent fire in the area, it gave us a higher elevated view of the surrounding countryside.
Ellery Creek Big Hole (West MacDonnell National Park)
8 Jun, 2019
Easy
800m return
30 mins
The long (48km) drive up from Standley Chasm was pretty uninspiring; good job the short walk in to the waterhole was well worth it.
Serpentine Gorge Lookout (West MacDonnell National Park)
8 Jun, 2019
Medium
2.8km return
1 hr
Time was running short on our one day in the West MacDonnell Range, so this has to have been the fastest walk ever, but a bit more of a challenge given the climb to the lookout.
Serpentine Gorge Waterhole (West MacDonnell National Park)
8 Jun, 2019
Easy
2.3km return
45 mins
Having climbed to the lookout above the gorge, we ducked into the cool of the waterhole on the return leg.
Ochre Pits (West MacDonnell National Park)
8 Jun, 2019
Easy
1.4km return
30 mins
Last walk of the day, as we just ran out of time to get up to Glen Helen and back. With a late afternoon drive back to Alice Springs, the West MacDonnell Range comes alive as the sun creates a diversity of colours on the rock faces.
Kings Canyon Rim Walk (Watarrka National Park)
6 Jun, 2019
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)
6 Jun, 2019
Medium
4.5km return
2 hrs
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)
5 Jun, 2019
Easy
2.7km return
75 mins
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)
5 Jun, 2019
Easy
2km return
1 hr
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)
5 Jun, 2019
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.
