Moderate track
Starting from the car park at the end of Kings Canyon Access, Petermann, this track takes you to the Kathleen Springs Rest Area via the Giles Track, crossing Kings Creek and Reedy Creek along the way. Make your way along the rim as you go through picturesque valleys and impressive sandstone formations. Expect panoramic views towards all directions, and keep an eye out for rock-wallabies, goannas and spinifex pigeons as well as pythons. The track you’ll be walking on is well-marked with signs every 10 to 100 metres. You may also come across some remains from earlier civilizations like stone blades, grinding stones and stencil art throughout the journey. There is a camping spot near Reedy Creek where you can spend the night and wake up to a beautiful sunrise. Avoid the walk in hot weather to be safe. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
