Kings Canyon hike

I would strongly recommend going to the outback esp N.T. to visit Kings Canyon and try do the 6 km hike early morning. We started off at 5:30 am and there were absolutely no one around and enjoyed the peace and quiet. But we could hear the sounds of nature - wind, leaves, some creatures moving around (but we didn't spot a single snake even though the information site did mention that there are "worna pythons" around).

It was an absolute treat to our ears.
Our hike was made even more special when we saw the sunrise over the canyon, throwing a bright orange colour over the, simply stunning!

A tip : Do not lose track of those blue markers, we kinda got lost taking photos but got back on track soon!! It's easy to go off the marked trail.
I will definitely visit the Kings Canyon again.

Need to make a page about Kings Canyon

I really should make that page about Kings Canyon, shouldn't I? It's been on the to do list for ages. Just never got around to it. That photo above is one of mine. It was an overcast day. Nothing like the colours you would have seen...

I agree that this is one of the best tourist walks you can do in central Australia.
