Drive from Alice Springs to Kings Canyon

Jump to last reply

How long does it take to drive from Alice Springs to Kings Canyon? I know there are multiple routes. I will have a 4WD rental car and want to take the route that will offer the best experience.

I can see two routes -- one through Hermannsburg and one through Glen Helen -- that split and then converge heading west towards Mereenie Loop. The route through Hermannsburg is about 325 km, and the route through Glen Helen is about 360 km.

Which of these is the preferred route, and how much time should I plan for the drive? I'm hoping to be able to make this drive and still have time to do the 3 1/2 hour Kings Canyon rim walk before sunset. Does this sound possible? I'll be doing this in May.

Any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks!
