  Kings Canyon
by bluesmama

Kings Canyon in Watarrka NP is the biggest canyon in Australia.
Even though it is big it is no bigger than you can walk up and down and around the canyon and gorge in about 3-5 hours.
The walk takes you up to the rim of the canyon and down into the narrow gorge; the Garden of Eden. Then it goes back up again and down on the other side of the canyon.
The walls of the canyon are more than 100m high so don't go too close to the edge if you suffer from vertigo.
Although the walk is a rather difficult and streneous, after seeing my cousin fighting her way through on crutches only a week after having the cast taken off, I'm convinced anyone can do it!
I was so impressed with her!
