Kings Canyon Resort

Kings Canyon Resort is located in Australia’s Northern Territory and is accessible via a loop off the main highway running between Uluru (Ayers Rock) and Alice Springs.

The sensitively designed resort is located in Watarrka National Park, just nine kilometers from Kings Canyon. Naturally, the resort has been built to blend in harmoniously with the surrounds. Kings Canyon Resort offers a wide range of accommodation.

The resort includes the Kings Canyon Resort Hotel with Standard Rooms and Deluxe Spa Rooms and the Holiday Park with a real Outback Caravan Park & Campground and Backpacker Accommodation. Both offer a level of comfort you wouldn’t expect in such a remote location.

Things To Do


Under a Desert Moon: Imagine the romance of a table for two in a wilderness setting under a canopy of the Southern Night sky. The only light comes from the moon and the flickering glow of the fire. The only sound is soft music intertwined with the whispering of the breeze through the Desert Oak trees and the crackling flames.

Enjoy a six course menu, accompanied by quality Australian wines. Under a Desert Moon is exclusive to Kings Canyon Resort. It is designed for intimacy, with no more than eight couples dining on any one night.

Under a Desert Moon is open between April and October.

Carmichael’s Restaurant & Lounge Bar: Our signature restaurant offers a delicious a la carte or buffet selection set in warm, inviting surrounds overlooking a lush desert garden. Open for breakfast (5.30am to 9.30am), lunch (11.00am to 2.00pm) and dinner (6.30pm to 9.30pm). Enjoy quality food and wine as well as our famous outback hospitality.

Desert Oaks Bistro: For a quick meal on the run, the Desert Oaks Bistro offers a selection of light meals, beverages and snacks. Come and grab breakfast from 7am to 10am. You can select from our delicious lunch menu between 10am and 3pm. The bistro is open for dinner from 6.30 to 8.30pm (seasonal) and features an a-la-carte menu including steak, chicken and seafood, in relaxed outback surrounds.

Outback BBQ & Grill: The Outback BBQ & Grill is a true Australian Outback experience offering a selection of contemporary Australian BBQ cuisine. Enjoy a-la-carte BBQ-style fare, fresh vegetables, salads, and a wide selection of wines, spirits, ales and soft drinks. Open for dinner from 6.30pm to 8.30pm. Revel in the friendly atmosphere, mixing with other guests under a solid roof with open sides - a traditional outback veranda. This casual bar and grill also provides live entertainment during peak season, which is generally April to October.

The Desert Oaks Bistro and Outback BBQ & Grill are closed from 1st November till 31st March.

The Thirsty Dingo Bar: As the sun sets over the desert landscape, enjoy a drink from the bar before dinner. Open from 2.00pm daily until late. Pizzas are served from 6.00pm - 8.00pm. This is the perfect way to unwind after a day of exploring the wonders of Watarrka National Park.
