This campsite is located in Watarrka National Park

This park of rugged ranges includes one of the most spectacular sites in the Red Centre – Kings Canyon, with its 100 m sheer rock walls protecting a lush gorge. The 3–4 hr Kings Canyon Rim Walk is one of the best half-day walks in the country, and at sunset the gorge cliffs light up. The detour to the Garden of Eden is worthwhile, and on hotter days provides welcome shade. There are several shorter walks, as well as the 22 km Giles Track which is suitable for overnight walkers carrying everything. Access to the park is via Luritja Rd, from the south-east, or the 4WD Mereenie Loop Rd.
