Continuing west along Ernest Giles Rd, or detouring from the Lasseter Hwy, brings you to the Watarrka (Kings Canyon) National Park, which keeps one of the most spectacular sights in central Australia – the yawning chasm of Kings Canyon. The Kings Creek Walk is suitable for families, following the rocky creek bed to a raised platform with amphitheatrelike views of the towering canyon rim. Walkers are rewarded with humbling views on the Kings Canyon Rim Walk. After a steep climb up a 100m-high cliff face, the walk skirts the canyon’s rim and then enters the Garden of Eden at about the halfway mark. Look for fossilised jellyfish on the rocks as you descend into the Garden of Eden: a lush pocket of cycads around a natural pool.
